Campers get a t-shirt to wear during the week. Kids campers get a pizza lunch on Friday. Teen Campers will receive pizza for dinner on Friday. Each camper will get two slices and dessert. If a student wants extra slices they can purchase them for $1.00 each.
Camps will be rotating through centers in the morning working with the music director, choreographer, and drama director. Campers will receive lines and have a part in the drama, if they choose to audition. Some campers will also be given solos or small group ensembles. All campers will sing at least 3 numbers in the final showcase. Campers will also learn a special team dance along with the choreography for the vocal numbers. After lunch, all campers participate in group games and team-building activities. A time of devotion and inspiration is also had after lunch. During the afternoon session, campers rehearse on stage with their team and with the whole camp for the final showcase.
Yes, camps are designed to teach theater skills through the songs, dances, and scripts that the students will present on Friday night. The showcase is a super fun event that is open to the public to watch. The showcase is a "mini" theater production that includes all teams in whole group numbers and individual team numbers. It is a great evening of amazing performances!
We find that at times, especially for younger campers, the first day can be a bit overwhelming. However, our staff is equipped to look out for children who may need encouragement to participate. Staff may come over and try to engage your child in opening activities like dances or games or introduce them to other campers. Parents are welcome to stay through opening activities, but once campers break into teams, we've found that mom or dad's presence sometimes makes a more difficult emotional break. Almost always, once campers have a few minutes to see what fun camp is, they quickly adjust. Please be assured that if your child is overly upset for an extended period of time, we will contact you.
Our staff and teen assistants will be wearing a CP Theatre Summer camp staff shirt and a name tag on an orange lanyard.
Yes! We try to honor as many requests as we can with regard to age range. Please include a name of a friend attending on your registration page if you would like us to try to put them on the same team.
All campers will need to bring a sack lunch and a water bottle. Campers may bring their own snacks or money to purchase snacks. On water day, bring a towel and wear clothes and shoes that can get wet. NO swimsuits! Please apply sunscreen before coming to camp and/or send sunscreen with your child and it will be applied.
No, we do not have extended care. If you need an early drop-off or a late pick-up on a day due to a conflict, please contact the camp coordinator and we will work with your schedule. We do not want your child to miss out on camp because of an early or late conflict.
We encourage you to let us know who your child would like to be on a team with ahead of time. We work very hard to make teams balanced and a great opportunity for your child. However, if there is an urgent need, we will consider switching teams on the first day only.
Many of our campers are new. We encourage a very friendly and welcoming atmosphere where kids will meet new friends. Your child will also have a specific staff person assigned to their team color who can assist in easing the transition.
We encourage comfortable dance- and play-friendly clothing each day. Please encourage your kids to wear shoes with a back of some kind (please no flip-flops).
Please let us know of allergies on your registration form. Our staff will be alerted to the allergy and maintain a high level of awareness. Medication can be left with directions with the camp coordinator. PLEASE NOTE: We are a “no nut” organization.
No. But water games are one of the campers' favorite parts of camp!
We do not have a nurse on staff.
Due to the extreme popularity of our camps, we do not offer refunds or cancellations for any reason except medical or family emergencies.
You can walk up and sign up at camp. However, many of our camps fill up so we encourage early registration. First-day registrations are not guaranteed a camp t-shirt.
Your child’s safety is our utmost concern. Each person hired by CP Theatre has completed a background check, interview, and camp staff training. We limit the maximum team number to 25 campers. Each team is assigned an adult staff leader, and we have 2-3 teen assistants per team. There is also an adult camp coordinator and administrator for every camp.
You will be provided a contact cell number of your area's camp administrator in case of an emergency.
No. CP Theatre holds to Judeo-Christian values of family, community, leadership, and positive encouragement. We welcome all kids of varying faiths, backgrounds and beliefs.
