Virtual Mini Musical Camp

We have translated our award-winning theater camps into online programming that kids around the world can join. Just like in our regular programs, Child’s Play NY virtual camps get kids playing games with each other, creating original material, and learning new acting skills.

Kids work in small groups, by age, to foster community. Camp days are flexible so you can pick a schedule that works for you! Lots of movement, dance and yoga keeps our kids active. Improvisation and creative writing get kids original voices flowing.

Self-expression and artistry are the name of the game! Campers spend the week exploring beloved musicals through improvisation, dance and music. Led by professionally-trained actors, kids flex their imaginative muscles and learn the basics of vocal warm-ups, character development, singing and choreography.

After camp, kids will receive a movie montage showcasing their original work and games.
