Empower your child by exposing them to the performing arts. We allow our campers to pursue creative dreams while building confidence, authenticity, and presence This camp provides children with an opportunity to participate in a musical theatre experience in an environment of encouragement and support. This original musical features age-appropriate excerpts from the smash hit movie musical The Greatest Showman. Boost your camper’s confidence level as they perform in a final showcase performance. Daily activities include acting, singing, and dancing workshops. We will also go behind the scenes and discover the world of art, set design, and costuming.
