Camp Arena Stage

Yo, Artist! Join us this summer at Camp Arena Stage — where community and art make magic!

Hosted on the beautiful grounds of Georgetown Visitation Preparatory School, Camp Arena Stage is a full-day, multi-arts summer camp, for young people, ages 8-15. A place to explore, discover, and create with the encouragement and guidance of professional artists and educators.

Campers choose their own schedules from a long list of classes in theater, dance, music, visual art, filmmaking, and writing.

Favorite past activities have included improvisation, a cappella, hip-hop dance, musical theater, drawing and painting, rock band, stop-motion animation, and many more.

With a Noontime Show every day, campers can perform in front of the best audience in D.C. – each other! In the 3-Week Session, campers showcase their work in our evening Arts Extravaganza.

Camp Arena Stage is for all artists. Not every artist is a performer, so being on stage is not required!
