MUSICAL THEATER

DAY CAMP

(AGES 7-12)

VTC Kids Summer Camp 21.jpg

VTC KIDS teaches our youngest actors, ages 7–12, to believe in their creative ideas, have the bravery to express them in front of others, and learn to be supportive of their peers. Campers will learn basic musical theater techniques to communicate characters, feelings, and stories, which will increase their focus and exercise their imaginations. They will develop trust through cooperation and collaboration – learning to accept and build on each other's creative ideas in an atmosphere of DREAM: Diversity, Reciprocity, Education, Activism and Mentorship. These skills will serve them onstage and off!

Campers have the option between a 4 week session and a 3 week session:

4 WEEKS

SUMMER STOCK FAQ

WHAT IS SUMMERSTOCK VTC?

Vanguard Theater Company's Summerstock is an intensive sleep-away program for the serious theater & musical theater performer between the ages of 12–19. The staff is led by professional actors and directors, and campers perform three fully produced shows in three weeks time. In addition to show rehearsals, campers choose to take workshops in a variety of areas including: Songwriting, Shakespeare, Puppetry, Musical Theater Dance, College Prep, and so much more! Recreational activities such as: swimming, boating, archery, hiking, and of course - nightly campfires, perfectly round out the camp experience. Our campers leave every summer saying it was the best weeks of the year!

WHEN AND WHERE?

VTC Summerstock 2021 will be held at Camp Vacamas in West Milford, NJ July 25, 2021 - August 15, 2021.
For returning campers, you will notice that this year VTC has expanded our program from 16 days to 21 days! This will allow for deeper connections, longer time to explore the shows, and more opportunities for valuable arts training and classes. Campers will learn, they will grow, and they will have an amazing time doing it.

COVID COMPLIANCE

We intend campers to have the FULL camp experience while remaining in compliance with all COVID-safety guidelines mandated by the New Jersey Health Department and CDC recommendations. While this summer will require some changes to how we do things at camp, we'll make sure that you and your child are prepared, and that camp will be as safe and healthy as possible while remaining a nurturing and creative environment. With this in mind, we are modeling VTC Summerstock 2021 on the pro-sport "bubble" prototype. To keep campers and staff healthy and safe, everyone will remain on-site for the duration of camp, with no outside travel or visitors permitted. Click Here for more.
