4-Week Intensive: The classic Camp Arena Stage immerses campers in the artistic process, allowing time for in-depth projects and arts exploration. Field trip, theme days and the final Arts Extravaganza make this the ultimate camp experience.

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 extras or time commitment of the 4-Week Intensive.

Campers are welcome to register for both sessions.


4-Week Intensive: June 26 - July 21, 2017
2-Week Session: July 24 - August 4, 2017


The program is open to boys and girls ages 8 through 15 (as of July 1, 2017)
