Frequently Asked Questions
Is there time for bathroom or snacks breaks in your camps?
Absolutely! Each camp is a little bit different based on the age group, but they all have scheduled breaks every hour.
Do you have to have previous drama experience?
Absolutely not! We welcome campers with all levels of performing arts experience. Our instructors are able to tailor each student's individual performance pieces to their level.
Can siblings participate together?
Yes! We allow up to 3 siblings of similar age to participate with 1 screen for no additional cost.
Do parents have to be involved?
No. We have designed the camp activities to be self-managed by the kids! 3-4 year olds may benefit from a parent being in the same room if they need help opening craft supplies or something like that, but all activities are designed to keep the kids entertained & engaged so the adults in your home can get a break!
Are kids staring at a screen for the whole camp time?
No. We build in screen breaks every hour for kids to handle snack/water/restroom needs. We also include screen-free challenges for the kids to be engaged but not tied to a screen the whole time -- costume design, indoor scavenger hunt, coloring or craft time, etc.
What are the teachers' qualifications?
All of our Teaching Artists are professional theatre instructors. Many have advanced degrees in Theatre/Dance/Voice/Musical Theatre. They all LOVE kids and theatre! All instructors are thoroughly screened and background checked. Many of them teach for us year-round with our sister company, Forefront Arts, in Atlanta GA.
What do we need tech-wise to participate?
We will be using an online classroom platform that uses video and microphone for each student. Check out our TECH page for specifics.
Can we do more than 1 camp week?
Of course! Each camp week is self-contained, and many families enroll in multiple weeks throughout the summer. Each camp will follow a similar format to other themes in the same division (Creative Dramatics, Musical Theatre, etc) but the performance material will be different, and many activities are tailored to each specific camp theme!
What is the cancellation policy?
When you enroll in a Virtual Drama Camp, your spot is reserved for you. We keep our camp sizes really small (10-14 kids depending on age group), so we often have to turn other interested kids away once the camp fills up. In order to be fair to everyone, these are the enrollment & cancellation policies for summer 2020:
