Join the cast and crew of LINX Theater Camp for an amazing theatrical journey this summer!
During each two-week long LINX Theater Camp session, campers receive expert instruction and constructive guidance from our dedicated year-round LINX Theater professionals (including our infamous Theater Director, Mr. Todd!)
Days at LINX Camps are typically spent laughing and learning with friends! Theater Camp includes three daily theater intensives, a lunch period, a swim period (including Red Cross Certified swim instruction), and a bonus camp activity period.
While Theater Campers are immersed in specialty sessions for half the day, they also have the opportunity to interact with non-theater camp friends during opening and closing ceremonies, as well as lunch. Our popular camp-wide activities help us to build a sense of camp community.
Campers develop characters, learn songs and choreography, enhance projection and stage presence while using memorization and imagination as tools to start their journey. Costuming, sets and props are also designed over the two week program.
Fun & Games
The use of improvisational games provides campers with the ability to 'think fast' while developing creative instincts. It also allows actors an opportunity to explore new "characters".
Campers learn breathing exercises, vocal anatomy, how to differentiate between voice parts, breath support and control, diction, and vocal dynamics. Campers learn just how to belt it out, preparing for when they take center stage!
The Final Show
At LINX Theater Camp, producing a Final Show is a fun and interactive way to strengthen each player's creativity and confidence!
All Theater Camp scripts, whether original or adapted, are ensemble pieces. Campers play equal roles in our productions. The absence of "lead" roles puts all of the participants on an equal level for learning and development purposes. All campers enjoy time brainstorming with directors and fellow performers. As a result, the children advance together and the usual egos that can be generated by uneven casting, are replaced by a positive, creative community working together to master a craft.
Mix It Up!
Many campers choose Theater Camp for multiple sessions to improve technique. Some compliment that with a week in another LINX Specialty Camp or a week in one of our LX Performing Arts Camps for a more intense performing arts focus. You may also add a General Camp or Sports Camp to experience all LINX Camps has to offer!
