The Create an Opera Camp, June 10-14, is perfect for young people just dipping their toes into the joy of music. In partnership with Wheeler Avenue Baptist, this unique camp experience is specifically for both singers and non singers alike in grades 3-8. Your child will spend the week collaborating with fellow campers to craft, design, and perform their very own captivating musical masterpiece inspired by a beloved children’s story. No matter their skill level, this camp is sure to be a fantastic opportunity for your child to grow, learn, and shine, both on stage and off!

This camp will run from July 1-19 and is specifically tailored for students with moderate to advanced vocal performance and/or technical theater experience.
