Virtual Camp Arena Stage
Registration for the 2021 Summer Camp will take in place Winter 2021.
Camp Arena Stage will take place in Summer 2021! At this time we are unsure whether it will be in-person or online. While our dearest hope is to be together and in person, we know after the success of Virtual Camp Arena Stage that we can create our joyful, artistic community at a distance if necessary.
We will post updates here, including dates, format and registration, as we determine them. Any plans will align with city regulations and guidance from the CDC.
"I always feel free to express myself at camp."
The creativity and community of Camp Arena Stage are coming to your home this summer! In this half-day, multi-arts program, campers choose their own schedules from a list of classes in theater, music, dance, media, visual art and writing.
Learning from an all-star team of professional artists and educators, campers will be immersed in interactive arts activities.
With a daily show and time built in to connect with friends old and new, Virtual Camp Arena Stage will provide campers with an unforgettable summer experience at home.
"I can create beautiful, real art."
Virtual Camp Arena Stage is an online, multi-arts program and community for young people ages 8 to 15. It is a place for young artists to explore, discover and create art while making meaningful connections with other young people.
Camps are half days – morning or afternoon – and run Monday through Friday for two weeks. Campers select their classes upon enrolling. Campers can register for more than one camp.
Each camper selects two classes from options in theater, music, dance, media, visual art and writing. Maximum class size is 16 campers. Supplies lists are provided for families to purchase supplies for visual arts classes.
All campers belong to a small “homeroom” group with time to participate in group activities, socialize and forge friendships. Our beloved daily show is an opportunity for our campers and staff to perform for and enthusiastically support each other.
Artists from Arena Stage’s musicals, the record-breaking Disney’s Newsies and Anything Goes will be featured guests during camp. These talented artists are excited to meet campers and discuss being an artist.
