Summer Camp Registration is open!

CYT Summer Camp is fun for all students! We create a hands-on theater experience with a focus on building performance skills, self-confidence, and teamwork. Our camps include rotations through acting, singing, dancing, games, and more and are perfect for all students regardless of experience level. There’s no better place for kids to learn about theater, have fun and develop character than in CYT’s positive and encouraging atmosphere. Registration for 2023 Summer camps is NOW OPEN!

We are continuing the model of last summer, and are holding two different camps. The first one, Off To Neverland, will be a week long camp June 19-23 for kids age 4-13 and will take place at New Hope Community Church in Aptos. Students will tell the story of Peter and Wendy, the youthful Lost Boys, and the bloodthirsty Pirates all while performing their favorite Neverland songs including "I'm Flying" and "I Won't Grow Up." This is a great opportunity for both younger students who are just starting out and those who have been on stage dozens of times. Jr. counseling opportunities are available for ages 13-15 and lead counseling opportunities for ages 15-18.

The second camp is a three week intensive theater immersion camp consisting of auditions, rehearsals and preparation for a weekend of performances of the Broadway musical The Music Man Jr. Students will learn and perform the full length musical with props, costumes, sets, lighting, and more all in a fun, upbeat camp environment. Whether you're brand new to performing or a seasoned veteran, there's a spot for you. We can't wait to have you join the fun as we put on this classic musical!
