Young Actors
Theater Camp

Summer takes the stage!

We’ll see you next year!

All of us at Icicle Creek Center for the Arts look forward to the tradition of welcoming back summer to our campus with the sights and sounds of students for camp. We are deeply disappointed to inform you that we have made the difficult decision to wait until 2022 to resume this program.

We value you and hope to see you again at Icicle Creek soon. In the meantime, stay tuned at icicle.org.

An extraordinary summer camp experience for aspiring young theater enthusiasts (ages 10-18) in a spectacular mountain setting at Icicle Creek Center for the Arts. The week-long camp immerses students into the world of theater in a fun, safe and nurturing environment. During the camp, young theater artists will have the opportunity to explore acting, directing, Shakespeare, playwriting, monologues, scene study, movement and voice for the actor within their own groups of similar age. Directed by Richard Padro, the camp is a training ground taught by theater professionals from Seattle, New York and Los Angeles that will culminate in a presentation for family and friends at the beautiful state of the art Snowy Owl Theater.
Note: Theater Camp this year consists of  one week of acting camp and no musical theater camp.

Students share cabins, eat healthy meals together and study and perform in acoustically perfect and sun-filled performance spaces. The mountains and meadows of Icicle Creek provide an open and beautiful backdrop with built-in opportunities for exploring. Students are housed on-site at Icicle Creek Center for the Arts in shared, chaperoned, cozy cabins. Cabins are air-conditioned, comfortable, and have their own bathroom with shower. The campers are organized according to age and gender and have an experienced camp counselor in their cabin.

A number of need-based scholarships will be given out to deserving students for each of the camps. Please indicate your interest in financial aid on the registration form and also complete the online scholarship application within registration. You need to register and pay the deposit even if your participation in camp is contingent on receiving a scholarship.

Those who wish to receive scholarships should register early as scholarship funds are limited.

We love to have fun!  Acting Camp activities include horseback riding and tubing (conditions permitting).  Other extracurricular activities may include hiking, swimming, group games, a movie night, and talent show.
