Parent Shout Outs:

 "Creative Arts Camp not only taught our daughter about musical theater, but how to work as a  team, support your fellow cast members, memorize lines and music, create a character, and  really built her self-esteem. We can't thank you enough for a wonderful summer!"

 “The counselors are just fantastic, they really make the camp as special as it is.  I’m always  amazed by how much they do with the plays in such a short amount of time.”
