Drama Summer Camps
Making a Scene Drama Camps are for boys and girls aged 10 to 17. Join us this July for an exciting week of creativity, where imaginations are opened up, and confidence is nurtured - all in an informal and fun-filled environment!
For complete beginners as well as experienced young actors, Drama Camp is the perfect place to develop creative skills.
Drama Camp is a safe and nurturing environment, where community is emphasized, friendship is valued, and personal growth is celebrated.
Camp leaders (senior Drama students) are chosen not only for their exceptional acting skills, but equally for their proven ability to be outstanding role models for young people.
Each camp features plays, monologues, mime, improvisation, theatre, games, musical theatre, work with simple sets and costumes.
Bring out the best in yourself by learning “to live in the moment” on stage. Improvisation is acting without a text – here and now! It’s great fun and, once you are at home with the technique, you will love it...forever!
Become “someone else”! We’ll show you how. Unwrap those many other people you carry inside you. It’s a new world that only actors know exists: explore that inner world in creative ways!
VOICE AND MOVEMENT
Want to be heard on stage? Want your body to work for you? It’s easy – once you know how – and we’ll show you how! No special skills required: learn simple and really fun techniques for improving your voice and your movement abilities!
Time: all classes are from 9:00AM to 4:00 PM Monday to Friday, with a late afternoon/early evening performance on Friday. There will be a brief orientation and tour on the first morning of camp. Parents and/or guardians are invited to stay and meet the Camp Leaders. A completed Media Release Form and Parental Waiver & Child Health Form must be handed in at the orientation.
Location: John Mitchell Building, U of S Campus
Price: $220 per camp ($415 for the 2-week Shakespeare camp).
Payment method: online Visa/Mastercard, in person credit card, cash or debit.
Participants are encouraged to bring a bag lunch and a water bottle. There are vending machines in the John Mitchell Building for snacks, as well as the Agriculture Café in the Agriculture Building (next to the John Mitchell Building) that is open from 8:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Please do not bring valuables or large amounts of money to camp. We have a secure room for coats and backpacks, but we cannot guarantee complete security. There is a bike stand outside the John Mitchell Building for those who cycle. Bicycles are not allowed in University buildings so you must bring a lock.
Cancellation is permitted (less a $50 administration fee) provided notice is given not less than 7 days prior to the first day of camp. No refund will be given with less than 7 days' notice (except when accompanied by a physician’s note).
The Department of Drama reserves the right to cancel camps due to insufficient enrollment. In the event of a cancellation, a full refund will be provided.
Before & After Care
We apologize, but we are not able to provide before and after-care services.
For the safety and enjoyment of all Drama Campers, please advise the Drama Department of any medical or behavioural conditions your child may have. Please also note that we are committed to providing a safe and nurturing environment for all, and hence abusive behaviour of any variety will not be tolerated.
Drama Camp is hosted in a multi-user building, thus we are unable to guarantee a nut-free environment.
