If you have kids, you probably have drama. Embrace it this year with summer camps from Pumphouse Theatre! If you have a young dramatist in your house, they will love a chance to get on stage. 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 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. These camps offer a variety of skills for any child. It’s all about learning how to communicate and how to express yourself. Kids will develop confidence and poise, and learn how to think outside the box. It’s imagination, self-discipline, and critical thinking skills.

Summer Camps

Summer camps at Pumphouse Theatre are offered in 5-day or 9-day options for kids ages 7 – 14 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 9-day sessions and the Friday of the 5-day sessions.

Registration is now open, but there is limited availability, so don’t delay! Early bird registrations (before June 2, 2024) 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.

No matter what session you choose, the Pumphouse Theatre summer drama camps will support all children as they grow, learn, and explore their creativity in a fun-filled and inclusive environment. Make it a summer to remember with Pumphouse Theatre Summer Drama Camps!
