Summer Camp at The Phoenix Theatre Company

2020 Summer Camp

Welcome to summer camp 2020!

COVID-19 Update - Our Summer Camps and Master Classes are scheduled to go ahead as planned beginning on June 1, 2020. This is subject to change due to the circumstances of the virus. Should classes be canceled or modified, rest assured we will reach out to all camp families and refunds will be made available.

The Phoenix Theatre Company is dedicated to making the arts accessible to children and teens of all ages and abilities through our Summer Camp programming. We believe in nurturing the artist inside every child and young adult. Our mission is to create an inclusive environment where campers can communicate their thoughts and feelings effectively through the arts while developing confidence and a positive sense of self. Our staff have both experience in theatre arts and in working with children. They are tasked with developing each child’s unique talents and form of expression. From camper to counselor to teacher, the sense of community and togetherness is strong, building new friendships and memories to last a lifetime.

Join the premiere professional arts organization in creating something special for your child or teen this summer!
