Grades:1st - 12th Grade





After thorough consideration of all the options, we have decided that it is in the best interest of our campers and staff to cancel all in-person musical theatre camps this summer.

Unfortunately, there are simply too many risks and unknowns right now for us to take our children on a potentially unsafe journey this summer.

In the midst of this unique and difficult season, kids of all ages need a safe, energetic place to create and express themselves. To meet that need, Kids Who Care has created a new, virtual program to bring together creative kids throughout the 2020-2021 school year -- to train and work on Project 2020+

JOIN US! Those interested in writing/songwriting to those interested in the technology side of the arts (sound, video, design, etc.) to dancers, singer, actors and visual artists, Kids Who Care is looking for a group of kids aged 6-18 from across our community and beyond, to come together (virtually) to participate in this new kind of musical theatre project.

Produced by Founder Deborah Jung, this group will meet once per week on Mondays with a national and local team of professional artists to co-create a new professionally-guided, kid-created original work. Our international students will simultaneously be contributing to the project from around the world.
