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, mediavisual 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.

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. 

Tuition is $325 for returning campers and $340 for new campers.

Schedule

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.
