DFW Camp Expo

The Art centre theatre

We are offering two week FREE Summer camps for children who have residency in the City of Plano for ages 6 – 18. Camps are available Monday – Friday, 9am -5pm culminating in a production at the end of the second Friday camp.

For your children to be accepted into the program parents/guardians are REQUIRED to attend the parent meeting on the first day of camp at the end of the day at 5pm. If parents do not attend the required parent meeting their slot in the summer camp program may be forfeit.

Each Summer Camp has a different theme to them.

We are gonna max camps out at 75 per giving us a total of 375 openings for summer.

This is a communal Theatre. Meaning everyone chips in to do their fair share in clean up. Also the children during lunch and snack time gets to have fun picnic style. Eliminating table groups so no child is separated or ostracized from any group. We will evaluate and assess each child on the first day of class to make sure they are assigned an appropriate developmental group of peers.

Children will be divided into 4 groups, rotating through roughly 2 hour stations. We teach and focus on Dance, Music, Acting, Story Creation, Arts & Crafts, and Improv. All stations work on projects related to the selected theme of the camp.

We have a lunch & 2 snack breaks throughout the day. All Groups sit together “picnic style” to encourage group cohesion. We also offer free food with the 501c3 non-profit Unique Pieces. They provide free lunches for people in need. The Free provided lunch may not suit the dietary restrictions or needs of your child, please look over the planned menu before making that decision, parents are more than welcome to provide lunch from home. Unique pieces only provides one snack for the day, so please send a 2nd snack.
