Performing Arts Camp
In Performing Arts Camp kids will hone a wide array of theater and entertainment skills. If you love to dance, sing, act, and perform in front of audiences, then this is the camp for you! PAC campers problem-solve, share, use their voices, bodies, and imaginations to express themselves, as they work towards a public performance and entertainment showcase. Each three-week session culminates in a performance for families, friends, and fellow campers in the SJCC auditorium. In addition to practicing their craft, PAC campers swim daily, go boating, do archery, and take weekly field trips around the town. So, come and turn this summer into your moment to shine!

Components of Performing Arts Camp
Theater fundamentals, games, and vocal exercises help campers learn to express themselves.
Backstage Theater Production
Leading up to each session’s final performance, campers will learn about backstage theatre production to give them a more full understanding of set construction, lighting and sound design.
Campers begin each day with our morning circle, where we learn traditional camp songs passed down from summer to summer. Campers also participate in music rotations where they cover popular songs and learn or create new tunes, while working to listen to their fellow performers and learning how to use their voices.
Through a study of technique and choreography, campers learn how to break down complicated routines into manageable steps. They gain flexibility, strength, and stamina as they explore dance styles. Campers will become more comfortable in their bodies and learn to express themselves through movement.
Campers participate in studio art classes using a wide variety of materials and inspirations. Some art classes revolve around set and costume design for final productions.
Field trips will include performances and trips to local beaches and parks, as well as annual favorites like the Family Fun Center and Remlinger Farms. Campers receive a well-rounded and dynamic learning experience through these field trips. We believe that a wide variety of life experiences help to cultivate knowledgeable and bright performing artists.
