For grades 4–12
Grade is determined by the student’s entry in September 2020.

Each summer, Corban University offers a two-week theatre camp for students entering grades 4–12. this positive and fun training will provide education in theatre skills while raising students’ appreciation for and understanding of the arts. We provide a platform for students to explore and express their God-given creativity and imagination while encouraging them to delight in the theatre process and the end-product.

All grade groups will participate in writing and rehearsing short plays, learning a song and dance, and participating in theatre seminars three times a week. Seminar topics have included costuming, set design, improvisation, and character development (to name just a few).

All of our camp teachers are thoroughly background-checked.

Daily camp attendance is mandatory
Unavoidable or last-minute conflicts (such as family death or illness) are the only exceptions.
