Campers choose their own schedules at Camp Arena Stage. The 2022 activity lists will be available in May 2022 after we have hired our staff.
Campers will rank their activity choices. Activities are not assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. We do our best to give as many campers as many of their first choices as possible. Campers receive their schedules on the first day of camp.
Note: Based on the guidance of our consultants at George Washington University, we may have to switch to a cohort model that has campers interact with a smaller group of people. This decision will be made when the activity choices are released.
Campers can request to be in the same small group as a friend or friends. Small groups have lunch together, sit together at the Noontime Show, and start and end the day together.
Campers can request to have the exact same schedule as a friend.

If Camp Arena Stage must cancel a session in full due to COVID-19 before the session starts, we will fully refund tuition. If we must cancel once a session has started, refunds will be pro-rated.
