Theatre Camp

PLEASE NOTE: the following information is for Theatre Camp 2019. THEATRE CAMP 2020 – WHIMSY, WISDOM, and WONDER will run July 13-25.

The below information is for Theatre Camp 2019. Information for 2020 will be similar, to be officially posted in February 2020, at which point we will begin accepting registrations.


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.
