Summer Camp Programs

Fun-Filled Camps with Crazy Themed Days, Theater Games, Outdoor Time and Lots of Laughs!

The Arts Alive! professional staff and experienced counselors will lead kids through games, improv, stage makeup, dance, creative movement, voice, mask making, stage combat and theatre craft and design! This is a chance for kids to work on their individual performance skills in a fun, safe, supportive, encouraging environment.
All Camp weeks conclude with an end-of-week performance for families. Performances are either held at St. John’s Church (in the field or in the main hall), or at the Barrington Public Library Salem Auditorium.
