Summer Theatre Camp and Performance Academy
Join us for a summer of play! Camps will be held at Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park and in Mason, and COVID-19 safety measures will be in place at all locations. Together we’ll explore fantastical worlds, storybook lands, our favorite books and
movies, and so much more. Tuition ranges from $200 to $845 and varies depending on camp type and number of weeks.Explore all camps
We believe everyone has a voice. Our process-based summer camp programs are designed to build confidence, strengthen communication skills and develop a sense of ensemble and community. Camps for young people ages 6 to 17
focus on individual and collective development in a fun, supportive and skills-based environment.
This year's camps include:
• Full-day, one-week camps for incoming first- through 10th-graders
• Full-day, one-week and multi-week Performance Academy camps for incoming first- through 12th-graders
Full- and partial-tuition scholarships are available to students who can demonstrate financial need. Scholarships are limited, and awards will be determined based on need and space available. The deadline to apply for scholarships online is May 5. Applicants will be notified
