It’s time to get lost in imagination and create new worlds. It’s time to play and explore everyday life through stories and interesting characters. If your living room is transformed into a stage on a regular basis or your kids beg you to stop what you’re doing to watch their show, then you need to take a look at Gateway Academy Summer Camps!

Gateway Academy is committed to enriching the quality of life by creating outstanding theatre and a hub for the performing arts. As such, they offer summer camps in acting and musical theatre for kids 6 – 13 years of age. Students will play in the structure of theatre, using physicality and voice in an ensemble to share a story. Classes will harness your child’s creative powers and strengthen skills that are vital for vibrant self-expression, helping students develop their best selves.

Students enrolled in Gateway Academy Summer Camps receive instruction from professional working artists who are not only skilled in their individual craft but who are also enthusiastic about sharing their knowledge and expertise with children. Kids will build their confidence while pursuing their passion for performing arts, filling their summer with learning and laughter. (New for 2022: find half-day camps for ages 6 and 7 that can be combined to create a full day, with lunch supervision included!)
