Our ten-day overnight experience includes small group classes in improvisational acting, dance, writing, oral interpretation, singing, set design, blues music, juggling, film making and drumming. extensive arts offerings are enhanced by summer camp traditions: a naturally beautiful setting, dorm living, and outdoor activities like hiking, biking, and basketball.
Evenings are devoted to shows by professional performers, and have featured everyone from Blue Man Group to Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler; from a Magician to a group that creates sculptures live on stage. With chainsaws.
Campers actively work together in many different contexts: in their bunks, in their classes, in daily “open mic” sessions, and in workshops directed by special guest SUMMER STARS.
Our guests teach master classes in Hip Hop, vocal production, and other performance techniques. Past teachers include Taylor Swift, Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler, DMC, Britney Spears, 50 Cent, Macy Gray, Blue Man Group, and actor Jennifer Coolidge.
Plus– feature film directors, choreographers, voice-over artists, magicians, singing coaches, makeup artists and stylists, and Broadway dancers.
On the final Saturday of the program, campers become SUMMER STARS in their own energetic, impassioned, inspiring performance– 90 minutes, 19 numbers in front of a full house, plus press and special guests. On a stage they built themselves.
Everyone performs. And everyone loves it.
The entire Summer Stars Program is presented at no cost to campers. Transportation, food, and camp are 100% paid for through donations, scholarships and sponsorships.
