Young Actors
Theater Camp

Summer takes the stage!

Camp is back! August 7-13, 2022

An extraordinary summer camp experience for aspiring young theater enthusiasts (ages 11-18) 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 where campers explore acting, directing, Shakespeare, playwriting, monologues, movement, and more.

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 (overnight) acting camp and no musical theater camp. 

Overnight Camp Only – $975 + $1.99 fee (Includes tuition, housing, all meals, snacks and activities)

$50 deposit is required for registration

Full tuition is due by July 8, 2022.

A limited number of scholarships are available on the basis of financial need. The scholarship application is a separate form to fill out before registering. We’ll save you a spot at camp until your scholarship application is processed.  When scholarships are awarded, we’ll send you a promo code to receive a discount during camp registration.

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.

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.

Activity Waiver Forms

Participation in horseback riding and tubing require waiver forms to be filled out completely.
