Got that little one that’s just kicking for a chance to show their flare, meet new friends, develop confidence, and have fun? Our half-day camps, taught by professional theatre artists at our North, South, and West Calgary locations are perfect for kids age 4-6. These half-day camps run from 9am until 12pm, from Monday-Friday each week and culminate in a fun performance for parents and friends!

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. Over two weeks, build a longer play in the afternoons and experience a broad range of morning drama fun! Final performance is on the second Thursday of each camp.
Our Teen Camps are a great way to really dig in and explore a side of drama that most interests you, and Teen Stage Makeup is one that our kids ask for every year. Learn from the experts the best way to transform your face into the wildest characters you can imagine! Learn how to make realistic-looking wounds, how to be the scariest monster on the block or how to magically become the most elegant woodland sprite! Cost of enrollment includes supplies.
