Registration now open for 28th annual Alliance Summer Arts Camp

February 9, 2016
Cape Coral Daily Breeze

Registration is now open to Alliance Members for Summer Arts Camp 2016. The Alliance for the Arts offers three camp options: Summer Arts Camp for K-6th graders, Minis Arts Camp for 4 and 5 year olds (must turn 5 by Sept. 1 to be eligible), and Musical Theatre Intensive Camp for 6-12th graders.

At Summer Arts Camp and Minis Arts Camp kids will engage in a wide spectrum of the arts as they act, sing, dance, and create works of art. Summer Arts campers will also create the set for the final stage performance that wraps up each week in the theatre. (No final performance for Minis Camp.) Musical Theatre Intensive Camp is presented in partnership with Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre. Broadway Palm director and choreographer Amy McCleary will lead the camps, and she will be assisted by professional actors currently performing at the theatre.

There are eight themed weeks of the Summer Arts and Minis Camps, including "Bottle Rockets & BBQ," "A Bug's Life," and "Inner Space." During "Spotlight on Broadway" week (July 11-15) campers will take a special backstage tour of Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre.

There are four weeks of Musical Theatre Intensive Camp, with themes like "101 Dalmatians" and "The Wizard of Oz." Students will train with Broadway Palm cast members in vocal and dance workshops as they learn choreography, audition techniques, improv, and music theory.

Summer Arts Camp is $160 per week for Alliance Members or $200 per week for non-members. Minis Arts Camp is $200 per week for Members or $240 for non-members. Both camps run from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Friday with early drop off at 8 a.m. and late pick up at 5 p.m. available for a fee.

Musical Theatre Intensive camp is held at Broadway Palm's rehearsal space in the Royal Palm Plaza. Camp runs 9 a.m.-4 p.m., Monday through Friday. (Daily arrival time 8:45-9 a.m. No pre or after care available.) There is a final performance each Friday at 3 p.m. Each week is $175 for Alliance Members or $220 for non-members.

Registration to all camps is now open to Alliance Members and open registration begins on Feb. 15. You may become a member during the registration process. Teen volunteer and scholarship applications will be available beginning February 15th. If you would like to give the gift of art to a deserving child please donate to the Alliance summer camp scholarship fund at Visit to learn more, or call 239-939-2787 for more information.
