Full-Day

Our week-long, full day camps are a great way to break up that long summer vacation. Camp kids spend their mornings learning various dramatic skills like acting, improvisation, and stage combat, and then in the afternoons, work with a CYPT professional theatre artist to build their very own play. These full-day camps run from 9am until 4pm, from Monday-Friday.

Get ready to really hone those acting chops in our two-week camps. No experience is necessary, but older kids who’ve developed a taste for the dramatic will find this camp the perfect next step.
