Bring on the drama this summer — really! Summer camps from Pumphouse Theatre are a great introduction to drama basics, offering a host of skills for every child. It’s all about learning how to communicate and express yourself, developing confidence and poise, and learning how to think outside the box. It’s imagination, self-discipline, and critical thinking skills. And at Pumphouse Theatre, it’s also about enjoying the arts, making new friends, and having loads of fun!
Pumphouse Theatre was started in the early 1970s to help fill a theatre void in Calgary at that time and to provide Calgarians with an affordable place to enjoy creative arts. Beyond theatre productions, they also provide a drama education program, such as their summer drama day camps.
Summer camps at Pumphouse Theatre are offered in one or two week options for kids ages 7 – 15 years. Participants gain confidence through this introduction to the dramatic arts, while they have fun with like-minded kids. Each camp is divided into classes that cover a variety of acting techniques, speech, physical theatre play creation, and more. Kids will work together under professional instructors, developing social and life skills. With their age group, they will create a play and at the end of each session, you’ll get to watch them perform their creation and showcase their new talents! Final performances are on the second Thursday of the 2-week sessions, and on the Friday of the 1-week sessions. Participants will also receive an official camp t-shirt and a digital copy of their final performance.
Registration is now open, but there is limited availability, so don’t delay! Early bird registrations (received before June 6, 2022) and multiple registrations per family will receive a $50 discount. The camps run from 9 am – 4:30 pm, but pre- and post-care are included in registration, beginning at 8 am and ending at 5:30 pm. The 2-week sessions run during the weeks of July 4 – 15, July 25 – August 5, and August 15 – 26, 2022. The 1-week sessions run July 18 – 22 and August 8 – 12, 2022.
