Summer camps at Arts Detroit
We’re excited to offer a number of summer camps both in Allen Park and Plymouth! Check below to see what we’re offering!
Camps in both Plymouth and Allen Park
Ages 4-7 • Monday – Thursdays from 9am-noon • $75 each
These camps focus on a basic structure with education and fun in mind: on Monday, we start with basic foundations of musical theatre. Students will create characters through improv, creative movement, and acting games. As the week progresses, students will explore the theme of the week with imagination and guided exercises to begin building a short 15-20 show which will be showcased to parents before they are dismissed on the last day of class. The goals of camp are to make new friends, build confidence, explore sounds and movements, encourage creativity, and have fun!
