In Person Camps

Every Winter, Spring, and Summer, Chicago Children’s Theatre offers a variety of 1 and 2-week camps for children ages 5-13. Students will learn the basics of acting, songwriting, scenic and prop design, choreography, and collaborative story development as they work together to create dynamic performances for friends and family.

Most performances for camps culminate on the final day of camp at 4pm in our Pritzker Family Studio. More information will be sent out closer to camp.
