"I always feel free to express myself at camp." – CAS Camper
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.
"The counselors have celebrated each child’s artistic talent ... and provided positive support and encouragement. I am simply in awe that this would be possible virtually."
– CAS Parent
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 14 campers with an average class size of 8 campers.
Classes are taught by a special team of professional artists and teachers. This “all-star” group has gathered virtually - from near and far - to plan an unforgettable summer program. Instructors have training and experience teaching online.
