The Shubert Summer Theater & Arts Camp is a program for rising middle-school students (5th-8th grade as of fall 2016) who want to explore interests, potential, and opportunities in the arts. The camp offers students a chance to take in-depth classes in dance, music, theater, visual arts, and creative writing while in an arts rich environment. The camp is open to both New Haven and non-New Haven residents. Located at adjacent Cooperative Arts & Humanities High School, the Shubert Summer Theater & Arts Camp is situated in the heart of downtown New Haven, surrounded by theaters, galleries, and museums. In addition to an arts atmosphere, the camp is staffed by a combination of professional artists, teaching artists, and emerging student teaching assistants from Cooperative Arts & Humanities High School.
Campers may either sign up for the Theater & Arts Camp, which allows them choose classes in music, theater, creative writing, dance and visual arts, or sign up for the Musical Theater Camp, which offers a curriculum of singing, acting, and theater-related activities. The camp concludes with a showcase after each two-week session for both parts of the camp. The Musical Theater portion of the camp will be presenting Annie Jr. and Disney’s Peter Pan Jr. Each performances is open to all campers, their families, and friends at no additional cost (number of tickets may be limited).
Camp is 9am-3pm each day. A snack and Federally funded summer lunch is included (campers may also pack their own lunch). An After Care program is available 3-5pm for an additional fee.
