Camp Arena Stage Philosophy

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 that 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 to grow as we explore, discover and create art together.
