Performance Arts Summer Camp

8th Annual Performance Arts Summer Camp 

Coming in 2021

A different kind of performing arts camp

Seven summers ago, we set out to create a performing arts camp that emphasized community and ensemble rather than competition–something affordable, flexible and accessible to all families and schedules. In the two weeks campers are with us, we build a one act musical while learning about all parts of the theatre. Campers work together to create costumes, paint and design a set, and form characters. In the end, they will leave with new found skills in performance, musical ability, and socialization. We can’t wait to see you this summer!

Mission statement:

The Tredyffrin Township Libraries’ performance arts summer camp, first and foremost, seeks to cultivate performance arts skills, including confidence, in all participants. The program simultaneously provides Conestoga graduates, currently pursuing degrees in performance arts, with summer employment. Furthermore, these positions  as experienced educators in their field of study help their community.

Vision Statement:

Our vision is a performance arts camp where locally educated students foster and deepen the next generation’s knowledge and enjoyment of the performance arts.
