Performing arts summer camps at UBC

One of the unique things about UBC summer camps is the ability to mix and match morning activities with afternoon activities. It changes things up for the kids, and it gives parents the ability to really hone in on areas their kids love, or a way to try something new without committing to an entire five days full of it.

I know quite a few kids who will watch, with rapt attention, any number of follow-their-journey specials about dance and musical theatre kids. Now they can try it out for themselves.

New to the stage

For kids 5-7 years old, there is Musical Theatre and Glee Camp. Musical Theatre focuses on character development, movement, body awareness, and confidence. There’s some easy improv work and storytelling games. Glee Camp takes the kids through some show tunes, both singing and dancing, and culminates in a performance at the end of the week.

Really finding their voice

For older kids, there are a few more specialized full-day options. The Musical Theatre Intensive takes kids through all aspects of a production: props, costumes, singing, dancing, acting, song selection, and more. Star Performers Acting & Drama Intensive focuses on stage acting, looking at improving stage presence and confidence, as well as investigating different genres of theatre. Young Performers Improv Intensive goes the comedic route, helping kids find their creative voice and explore playfulness on stage.

For the half-day options, you can always combine it with a sport or art camp, with a supervised lunch in the middle. UBC staff make sure your child gets to their next camp safe and sound. That way, if you child really wants to do show tunes, and then fencing – you’re good to go.
