As the school year comes to an end for students around the DC area, many parents are wondering how to keep their kids engaged and active this summer. Adventure Theatre is offering a great option: Digital Musical Theatre Summer Camps! And if the quality of their past onsite camps and wonderful stage productions for children are any indication, this will be an excellent way for kids to have fun as they learn new skills and interact with peers and instructors.
The camps are specifically created for an online and screen-based medium with a live teaching artist to guide kids step-by-step through the process of acting, music, dance, and improvisation. Students will explore their surroundings and create new worlds with the objects they have around them. They will dive into their individual characters and receive personalized attention from each teaching artist.
This new way of “going to camp” may seem odd, but there are benefits, too. There’s no traffic to contend with since you don’t need to drive kids there, classroom size is smaller than in-person camps, and they are now accessible to kids who may have lived too far from camp locations in previous years. Even more, as the camps are designed for kids to work independently from parents, they give you time to relax, work, and get other things done.
All camps are held Monday to Friday on the dates and times listed, with options for kids in Kindergarten through 12th Grade. Each camp is tailored to the age it serves through time commitments, goals, recommended screen-time, and subject material of the class.
Camp sessions, which are two and three weeks long, begin June 16 and run through late August. Online registration is now open — learn more and sign up your child today!

“You were proactive, and stayed in touch with the students, set up classes, provided homework, communicated, every step along the way, whilst maintaining a certain amount of normalcy, which I recognize is great for our children, not just from a theatre perspective, but in their lives.”
“I just signed up our daughter again for the next acting course. She really liked it. Kudos to (the instructor) who did a great job.”
“It’s been great for my child to continue with conservatory and to maintain those connections. Thank you so much for making that work and to you and everyone at ATMTC for adapting to this unimaginable world we find ourselves in at the moment.”
