Did imagination bring life to your childhood? Remember when a huge cardboard box would be the setting for multiple stories and provide entertainment for days? This summer your kids can make their own funny and exciting memories! When school lets out it’s time for children to do what they do best: explore, have fun, and get creative. Happily, there’s a great place where they can do all that!
Quest Theatre Summer Drama Camps celebrate the organic, ridiculous, and brilliant creations of your child! Kids ages 6-17 can explore the world of live performance with experienced artists who love to share their passion for theatre. Children gain self-esteem, confidence, communication tools, and friendships, as well as learning about the arts. Quest Theatre has been bringing exceptional make-believe adventures to young people for years through the whimsical and inspirational experience of theatre as they create a play in a week.
Even if you don’t have little drama kings and queens, your kids can develop and grow through Quest Theatre camps as they learn more about themselves and those around them. Kids are encouraged to develop their OWN ideas for play creation. Quest knows that championing a young person’s innovations, no matter how slight, goes a long way in developing their love and pursuit of creativity, which benefits them in every aspect of life.
What’s even better about these camps is that they’ll be so excited to share their experience with you! Each Friday, campers celebrate with a special scene sharing, where your child’s week unfolds before your eyes with a performance that was written and created by your child’s class.
Quest Theatre camps are available in 4 exciting options:
Journeys (6-8 years old) – One week camp
With storytelling, creative play, and group activities, these kids play and laugh their way to a wonderful story.
