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!
- Activities are posted in May 2019, after the teaching staff has been confirmed.
- Activity requests are due to firstname.lastname@example.org by June 1.
- All campers who are paid in full on June 1 are scheduled. Scheduling is not on a first-come, first-served basis. We try to make as many campers as happy as possible.
- Campers receive their schedules on the first day of camp.
- Schedules can be changed on a space-available basis during the first few days of camp.
Sample Activity List
2019 activities are available in May 2019. The 2018 activities are a good approximation of the 2019 activity list.
Daily Noontime Show
12:30 p.m. in the Nolan Center
We have a show every day at Camp Arena Stage! Campers, staff and guest artists perform as individuals, small groups or classes in front of the most supportive audience you’ll meet. Acts range from rock bands to hula hooping, from musical theater dance numbers to violin solos. Family and friends are always welcome!
Every day needs variety! After the Noontime Show, campers choose a one-shot recreational or arts activity that they will do for 50 minutes — dance party, soccer, karaoke, jewelry making, solo voice coaching, French braiding, theater games, yoga, juggling, photo safaris, stage makeup, stage combat, etc. Choices are different each day and provide a fun change of pace in the afternoon.
