Creative Arts Camp is full of creativity and fun for campers ages 4 and up. Throughout the summer we cover all aspects of creative arts from performing arts, technical theatre, visual arts, ceramics, filmmaking and more! Parents and children can pick and choose the right camps for their camper or join us for the entire summer because each week will be different from the last. Every camp will work towards a final show or project that family, friends and fans will be invited to attend! Creative Arts Camp is brought to you by Thalian Association Community Theatre.

For any questions please contact Creative Arts Camp Director, Samantha Herrick
