JOIN THE CARNEGIE FOR A WEEK-LONG SUMMER THEATRE CAMP
COVINGTON, Ky. (Feb. 7, 2022) – Camp Carnegie is back for another summer of youth theatre. Students ages 7 to 13 can register, starting Monday, Feb. 7, 2022, for The Carnegie’s week-long summer theatre camps that culminate with a live performance in The Carnegie’s Otto M. Budig Theatre.
This year’s theme is CAMP CARNEGIE: A VILLAIN’S TALE, retelling a story through the eyes of the villain. Students will explore misunderstandings and decisions gone wrong as they work together to share the other side of a villain’s tale.
Camp Carnegie includes hands-on art making, character design, dramatic exercises, story writing, costume construction, backdrop painting, team building, problem-solving, and a great deal of fun. Also, Camp Carnegie alumni, students older than 13, are invited to continue growing and creating with The Carnegie as youth volunteers. These students become role models and leaders as they assist and guide campers.
The Carnegie is offering eight full-day camps throughout June, July, and August. Located at 1028 Scott Boulevard in Covington, Ky, camps will take place in The Eva G. Farris Education Center with culminating performances in The Carnegie’s Otto M. Budig Theatre.
