Camp Kidz

Professional coaching in all aspects of music theatre – dancing, singing, acting.

Spring Mini-Musical Camp

Besides memorizing lines and learning song and dance routines, more importantly, campers experience the process involved in putting on a musical production from auditioning, stage blocking and character analysis to the small and large group dynamics of being a cast member. CCA’s spring camp also encourages creativity and helps develop the camper's self-confidence and other life skills that they can utilize in their day-to-day activities.
