What should I bring to camp?

Students are asked to bring:

  • Three-ring binder:  To hold the script. A thin (1/2 inch) one is easiest to handle.
  • Pencil: For taking notes in your script.
  • Clothes to move in: As much of the day requires physical activity, please wear clothes that are easy to move in such as shorts, sweat pants, t-shirts and tennis shoes. Please DO NOT wear skirts, sandals, heels or big pieces of jewelry as they hinder movement and can be unsafe. The building is air-conditioned so layers are encouraged.
  • Closed-toed sneakers or tennis shoes: Flip flops and sandals are not allowed at camp.
  • Hair-ties: Hair should be tied back for rehearsals and stage combat class.
  • Water bottle: To keep hydrated.
  • Healthy lunch and snacks: Please note that students will not have access to a microwave or refrigeration, so all lunches need to be non-perishable.

What sort of snacks should I bring?

Camp is a long, vigorous day for young actors as they are physically active most of the day and need to consistently maintain focus. We ask that you limit the amount of sugary snacks and choose more healthy alternatives. Below you will find suggestions for healthy snacks:

  • Chopped, raw vegetables
  • Granola bars
  • Cheese and crackers
  • Celery, apples or mini rice cakes with peanut butter
  • Nuts and dried fruits, especially raisins
  • Fresh fruits, applesauce, or other fruit cups
  • Breadsticks or pita chips with hummus
  • Pretzels or popcorn
  • Graham crackers or gingersnaps dipped in applesauce
