Jump into journeys, leap into legends, and dive into daring adventures with Asolo Rep! Courageous Creating introduces students to storytelling structures and drama skills as they bring stories and characters to life.  

This camp is for 8 to 10-year-olds who love using their imaginations, have a dramatic side, and/or enjoy creating and acting out stories. No experience necessary – theatre is for everyone!  

2024 Summer Camps

Asolo Rep Summer Camps use theatrical skills from all elements of the artform to encourage campers to use their imaginations, to express their ideas, and to explore their world through theatre. Whether performing a story of their own design or developing a quest for characters they developed themselves, campers experience theatre from many different angles: performance, design, storybuilding, and (most importantly) imaginative play! 

Summer Camps are available at two locations:

  • Asolo Rep (June 24-August 9) 

  • Out of Door Academy (June 10-21).
