The health and safety of all campers and staff is our utmost priority. Please contact with any questions. 

Week 2: 7/13-7/17- HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS- Spaces still available!
Big Business means big laughs in this clever lampoon of life on the corporate ladder. A tune-filled comic gem that took Broadway by storm, winning both the Tony Award for Best Music and a Pulitzer Prize (not to mention it took Daniel Radcliffe from Harry Potter to the Braodway stage!) Imagine you had a handbook to tell you how to succeed…? This is going to be a week of some serious comedy.

Week 3: 7/20-7/24– TUCK EVERLASTING- Spaces still available!
What would you do if you had all of eternity? Come join Winnie Foster as she takes the adventure of a lifetime beyond her picket fence when her life becomes entwined with the Tuck Family. They seem to have found magic that gives them eternal life! What will she choose: return to her normal life, or join the Tucks on the everlasting journey? Let’s  go off to the woods to have an adventure!

Week 4: 7/27-7/31- CONTEMPORARY BROADWAY ***FULL-Contact for Waitlist*** 
It is a camp tradition! We mix up a bunch of shows that are currently HOT on Broadway and create our own revue of fun and fabulous numbers! Wait to see what is on the lineup this year…

Week 5: 8/3-8/7- R & J- Spaces still available!
Can you guess how many plays and musicals were based on the theme of Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet? This week we will take a trip through the ages exploring love, rivalry and family warfare  Broadway style!

Week 1: 8/10-8/14 (Note New Dates)– DESCENDENTS- Spaces still available!
Get ready for a fun musical fantasy adventure-comedy as we explore scenes and songs from the popular film. Follow the children of famous Disney villains adjusting to life outside their island prison, while on a mission to steal the Fairy Godmother’s wand and free their parents from captivity!
