If you have children who love to speak out, speak often, and act, maybe the most effective way to have them spend their summer is at a performing arts camp. Here, children can learn to channel their energy in a positive and structured manner.
Starting Arts Camps offers a wide variety of camps for children of all ages, whether they are interested in dance, theater, music, or visual arts.
The Berkeley based Youth Musical Theater Company (YMTC) has summer programs for children in Junior High and High School looking to participate in plays or musicals. These camps are full day and are slightly more pricey, but your child is guaranteed to love his or her experience with performing arts and will be part of a well-known production.
Inspire Music Camps, on the other hand, focus more on the musical aspect of performing arts. These full day camps have sessions for kids ages 8-18 interested in rock, jazz, or “musical” music. These camps have enough variety to ensure every child of every age the ability to play the music they want to play.
