Learning, Laughing and Building Confidence Through Drama

A memorable experience for your children or grandchildren.

Youth Theatre Summer Camps

Theatre camp keeps the brain active, develops thinking skills, and maintains reading levels over the summer.

At Theatre Summer Camp, children aged 4 through 16 explore their interests or extend their love of theatre and drama. From acting to lighting, improv to costumes, singing to stage management, qualified instructors guide young people through the entire process of mounting a production beginning with the audition through to the final bows. Days are packed with fun, games and activities chosen to focus and teach skills required for stage performance as well as everyday life.

Our dynamic staff have specialized training in several different aspects of the performing arts, on stage as well as backstage. Guests artists and technicians are brought in to expand the program.

A Theatre Intensive week is offered for the second year for children with stage experience. This session has extra highly-qualified guest instructors in three disciplines: music, acting, and movement. The class is limited to 12 students with an audition and resume required.

General Details

Camp sessions will begin on Monday, July 1, 2019, and continue through to Friday, August 16, 2019.

Camp sessions run 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. daily. Arrangements may be made for early drop off and late pick up at an added cost.

Children may be enrolled for multiple sessions as each session is unique in major components.

NOTE: This year there is an overlap in ages in some groups. This is to accommodate kids who are perhaps more or less outgoing for their age or who may have the experience to be able to handle working with older students. Also, if they attend a camp where they are the older student they may want to come back and do a camp where they are the youngest. Email us if you need some guidance for camp session selections.

Camp sessions are held in the Firehall Theatre, located directly behind Victoria Hall at 213 Second Street, Cobourg.

We offer a 10% discount for families paying full fees for camps before June 1, 2019. (Note: this discount is automatic if you use PayPal.) However, there are no discounts on the Theatre Intensive or LIT programs.

For information about multiple-session or family discounts, call 905-372-0577 or email camps@northumberlandplayers.ca (Note: PayPal is not available for these discounts and only ONE discount may be applied to each session.)
