*Locations are subject to change.

Do you offer Before-Care and/or After-Care?:
Yes, Before-Care is offered for summer camps from 8-9am Monday-Friday and After-Care is offered 3-6pm Monday-Thursday. We will not be offering a drop-in option for Before-Care or After-Care this year. All attendees to extended care must pre-register for Before- and/or After-care for the full week.

Will there be a performance?:
Due to the limited timeframe, our one-week camps focus on community- and skill-building instead of working toward a full performance for friends and family. Students in these camps will perform for their fellow campers, however there will not be an invited Final Showing. 
If an invited Final Showing is important to you and your family, please consider enrolling in a two week or three-week camp*.

*We plan to hold invited Final Showings for all two- and three-week camps. This is subject to change based on CDC and local mandates and/or site regulations.

Why is there no full video?
As a small non-profit organization, we do not have the staff resources to produce an edited full-length video for every camp cohort.

We encourage you to invite your camper to share the games, scenes, and songs that they have enjoyed throughout the week and to show off their art & crafts projects!
