1st-6th Grade Programs - The Theatre Lab

1st-6th Grade Programs

For students entering 1st-6th grades, we offer one and two-week summer camp sessions. Read on for group breakdowns, dates, times, and themes for each program.

At The Theatre Lab, our summer camp programs are divided into groups based on the grade that the student is entering in the fall. We place all children with their peers based on grade regardless of theatre experience. Camp is a very social experience and we want to make sure they are with a developmentally appropriate group. We keep our classes small and group age ranges narrow in order to provide both a challenging, engaging, and age-appropriate curriculum.
