General Summer Camp Information
Summer Camps online? I know it seems crazy but when we heard that most summer camps were closed, we knew we could help to fill the gap. The OCT instructors have been doing pioneering work in online interactive programming for children since the pandemic hit. So, we got together to brainstorm how we could work with the virtual platform to give a fabulous summer camp experience to children ages 6 – 16.
The result of that brainstorming is a range of camps: Musical Theatre, Acting, Drama, Improvisation, and Play Productions. Our online Summer Camps are designed to be highly interactive. Campers will put on plays and musicals, develop improvised adventures, perform stories and even learn how to write original musicals!
Any camp longer than an hour and a half has an off-screen break designed into the program. During the off-screen break, campers will be provided with directions for lots of theatre crafts, including set, props and costume designs. In this way, campers will continue to explore their creativity offline before they come back online for more exciting activities.
All of our artist/instructors have taught summer camps for years. We know that camps need to be a combination of physical activity, creative fun, and learning. And camps need to give parents a bit of a break they can count on! Of course, these are challenges in the age of Covid-19. But we’ve made some huge creative leaps and designed dynamic interactive programs that are not limited by the virtual platform.
We’re dedicated to providing the best camps we can, online.
