Summer Camps 2017

 

Find What’s Right for your Child

Summer Time is the perfect time to explore one of our Theatre Camps or take a regular once-a-week session of Exploration or Process classes that meet each week throughout the summer (skip July 4th week).  Camps are one-week, partial-day camps (divided by age or rising grade level= the grade your child will be in for the coming academic year).  One-week camps fit nicely into busy summer schedules and provide an appropriate amount of class time per day pending grade level. You can even pair up a morning and an afternoon session (send a lunch) to cover activities for the full day—better than a babysitter!  All theatre training allows for a range of experience levels within the same camp, so beginners will feel right at home while experienced actors are challenged.  Most of our summer camps have themes, but basic acting skills will be incorporated into all of them.

Our camps tend to sell-out so don’t delay in enrolling in the ones that you like.

Be sure to check our week-at-a-glance list, for camps that might be good for pairing and save money!

You will receive a confirmation email when we receive your enrollment—and a reminder email the week before your camp starts—please pay close attention to the details of your camp. Needs vary from camp to camp, based on theme or length.

Change of plans? No Problem! Tuition refunds (less a $30 non-refundable cancellation fee) will be given only with written notification of withdrawal at least 10 days prior to your camp’s start date. No refunds will be made after your camp begins.  If summer plans change at the last minute, we will gladly switch you to another camp if space is available.

WAITING LISTS  We do keep a waiting list on all camps that fill and if enough people are on it, we will try to add another session of the camp.  Please always let us know that you are interested in the camp even if you see it has already sold-out –  jill@scchildrenstheatre.org

SNACK– All camps (except the 3-5 year old camps) will take a snack break.  Our vending machines work sporadically so it is best NOT to count on them and if you do hope to buy a snack, you must bring change (the first thing that stops working is the dollar bill changer and teachers cannot make change).   Water bottles LABELLED with your child’s name are encouraged.  Please be aware that many children have very serious nut allergies and can be affected if they breathe near children eating nut-based food or touch the hand of a child who has touched nuts.  Please avoid sending food that has nuts of any kind in it.

LUNCH There is a snack area available for students who are taking a morning and an afternoon camp.  Students are welcome to stay and have lunch (refrigerator available, but not a microwave) and read a book, or play a game until their next class starts—please notify Jill if your child will opt to eat here so we can alert the class assistants to keep an eye on them.  If you are taking camps that are back-to-back, the teachers for the after lunch camps will be alerted that your child will eat a quick lunch in our break area and come to class a few minutes late.

CLOTHING Students should dress comfortably – dresses are not recommended.  Many of the younger camps (except Musical Theatre), the students will remove their shoes for the carpeted class spaces.  Older campers and all musical theatre students should wear shoes that remain securely on their feet—NO FLIP-FLOPS!

ABSENCES Students should plan to attend the entire week of camp.  If you know in advance that a student will be absent, notify the teacher at the first camp meeting.  If you will miss the first day, please notify jill@scchildrenstheatre.org.  Because each class builds on skills and activities from the previous day, absences affect preparation for the Sharing on Friday and may affect a student’s participation. There are no refunds or make-up classes for missed days.

SPECIAL NEEDS Please be sure to discuss with the teacher on the first day any medical conditions, allergies (especially food allergies), learning/processing issues or special needs that were listed on your Release form.  Open communication with families helps us create a successful environment for every student.

OBSERVATION POLICY Parents are invited to observe at the sharing/observation on Friday.  Other than that and during the first day orientation tour, parents do not accompany students into the classrooms.  The best way to handle any separation anxiety on the first day is with a quick but loving goodbye from the parent.

Extended stay (8:30-9:30am or 4:15-5:30pm) is also available for an additional fee ($20 per week for either option) —please notify Jill concerning your specific needs AT LEAST ONE WEEK IN ADVANCE OF YOUR CAMP – we cannot accommodate requests made the week-end before.

We also plan to offer preschool camps the last 2 weeks of August – after Greenville County schools start back, but perhaps before preschools get underway.  Check back in late July for late August options!

Also a PIECES OF THE PUZZLE: A drama experience for children on the autism spectrum class for rising grades 2-6 in prep for the Fall Semester of classes potentially the week of August 14—the week before Greenville County Schools start back..

 

EARLY BIRD SPECIAL

If you sign-up by 11pm on Monday, May 15th you may deduct $25 per camp! Use the code earlysummer17

***This code will NOT work correctly when registering 2 or more children for the SAME camp only. It will give you $25 off the first child but not the second. You can register them separately and apply the discount on both registrations OR put them on one registration and email Jill to get a refund on the 2nd child. This is a software issue and we have been unable to get it corrected. We apologize for the inconvenience.***

If you have any problems using the codes above please call Jill at 864.235.2885 ext. 105 or email at jill@scchildrenstheatre.org.

Jump to: Ages 3-5 | Rising Grades 1-5 | Rising Grades 6-12 | Workshops & Adult Classes

Ages 3-5

All students must be able to use the bathroom by themselves as needed.  SCCT Teachers/Assistants will not change diapers. If your child is still in diapers, a parent/guardian must remain in the waiting area during class times.

Games and activities will be based on the camp theme while exploring group problem solving, being seen and heard in front of an audience, areas of the stage, and character development.  Parents and friends are invited to observe part of the class on the final day—no formal performance.

Some theatre exercises & activities are used each session, but teachers are sensitive to the needs of returning students, so these classes are appropriate to take several times to further hone skills.

WE DO NOT RECOMMEND ENROLLING FOR ALL THE CAMPS OFFERED IN A WEEK AT THIS AGE—it is just too long a day for a 3-5 year old. Two back-to-back camps are suggested, but not three.

Camp enrollment – 8 maximum, 4 minimum

End of week observation (no performance)

Tuition $75
