Matthews Playhouse of the Performing Arts invites children ages 4 and up to embark on an incredible journey of discovery, creativity and fun this summer. The theatre’s annual Summer Camp, which has served tens of thousands of children in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg and Union County regions since its inception in 1995, offers an exciting array of activities designed to engage and inspire campers ages 4 and up.
“Our summer camp kids explore the performing arts, develop skills in drama, music, and dance, and build meaningful relationships through engaging activities,” says Executive Director, Sarah Baumgardner. “Through this program, our campers gain confidence, develop their creativity, and have an unforgettable summer.”
Overview of Matthews Playhouse Summer Camp
Summer camp at Matthews Playhouse promises a variety of creative and challenging experiences for youth. With themed camps for ages 4–18 years old, children participate in full or half-day camps during the months of June, July, and August and each session culminates with a special on-stage demonstration for friends and family.
Matthews Playhouse welcomes children of all backgrounds and skill levels in the performing arts. The summer camp staff is made up of professional actors, directors, musicians, choreographers, theatre educators and former School of Theatre students who are back to pass along what they have learned to the next generation. Each instructor and camp counselor is trained to ensure that each child enjoys a summer camp experience that is safe, enriching, and fun.
