In a fun and creative environment, campers develop theatre skills, gain confidence and develop social skills through collaboration and performance.

Four professional teaching artists lead four separate classes focused on acting, singing, and dance, with one specialty class that varies from session to session depending on the themes within the play that week.  Examples of the specialty class include: improv, fight choreography, stage makeup, and puppetry.  The week will culminate in a showcase performance of the play for friends and family.  The campers will be divided into two age groups: 7-11 & 12-15.

This year’s Young Actors Theatre Camp will take place at the beautiful Encinitas Community Center. For more information about the location, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions page.
