Goshen Theater Drama Club’s Summer Camp

Goshen Theater Drama Club’s Summer Camp is a unique, three-week program focusing on fine arts learning, fun, and performance. Participants learn about theater, design, storytelling, history, and teamwork. Classes are held at the newly-renovated, historic Goshen Theater.

Professional instructors and local educators serve as guides for this one-of-a-kind program. The culmination of the three-week experience is a live performance on the Goshen Theater Stage! Each student’s design work and group projects will be displayed in a gallery show in the GT lobby.

The Drama Club’s summer camp doesn’t just focus on performers: Students are exposed to every aspect of theater production, helping to create and design their final show. From program design to costumes and scenic painting, the Goshen Theater Drama Club’s three-week summer program is for youth, by youth!

We believe practical, hands-on creativity is the best way to learn, and you’ll be surprised how much theater arts has to teach about math, science, English, writing, and creative problem-solving.

Two tracks are available to campers: “Performance” and “Technical Theater.” While every student will experience both performance-based and technical design lessons, we want them to explore art in the most exciting – and comfortable – ways for them. Performance track students will be on stage for the showcase, while Technical Theater students will create designs, running the production from behind the scenes.


Full Three Weeks – $250/student

One or Two Weeks – $100/week
