Celebrate 15 summers of art and community with Camp Arena Stage!
Community and art make the magic of Camp Arena Stage.
At camp we see, recognize and appreciate each individual for who they are and the art only they can make. We value being present, joyful, creative and kind.
We know art has a product, but it is also a process full of mistakes and discoveries. We support one another and make a place that is safe to take risks and grow.
“By far the most beautiful piece of art to come out of camp this year, in my opnion, was the masterpiece of a community we built together, painted with people of all shapes, sizes and personalities, all brought together in one place by one simple thing: a love of art.”
4-Week Intensive: The classic Camp Arena Stage immerses campers in the artistic process, allowing time for in-depth projects and arts exploration. Camp concludes with the annual Arts Extravaganza.
2-Week Session: A great introduction to Camp Arena Stage or a way to fit CAS into a packed summer, in this abridged session campers benefit from top-notch artistic instruction without the time commitment of the 4-Week Intensive.
Campers are welcome to register for both sessions.
Every day campers attend their set schedule of activities/classes. These activities are chosen before camp begins from more than 75 options in theater, dance, music, visual art, filmmaking and writing. Campers take the same five activities each day for the full camp session.
Campers can choose activities within the same discipline or a variety of disciplines. It’s up to them!
Camp Arena Stage provides a limited number of need-based scholarships each year for the 4-Week Intensive. Both full and partial scholarships are granted. The 2019 scholarship application deadline is March 18. Applications are now available.
Camp Scholarships are supported by Friends of Southwest DC, Lavern Chatman/James I. Chatman Fund and the Robert and Natalie Mandel Family Foundation.
