Each session of Camp focuses on distinct elements of performance and culminates in a showcase on the final day, spotlighting each student’s talent and a snapshot of the new skills they have explored!

Into the Woods and Out of the Woods and home before it’s dark! In one of our most popular returning camps, an adventure-inspired Nature Camp meets Theatre Camp for “Out of the Woods”. Highlighting Serenbe Playhouse’s mission of experiencing nature and creating art inspired by it, campers will be guided by professional theatre-makers and nature enthusiasts to create their own mini theatrical productions inspired by the great outdoors!
Creative kids will love “Out of the Woods”, exploring nature while crafting theatre from page to stage in an exciting artistic environment that fosters independent thinking. Campers will go on nature hikes and then write a scene based on something they experienced; learn to build a fire and then try to re-create it for a set piece; or go on a canoe ride and then create characters based on the water or animals they saw. This one-of-a-kind theatre experience includes a camp field trip to a performance of the Playhouse’s production Robin Hood and culminates with a performance featuring our young adventurers and actors in their very own nature-inspired Showcase on the last day of camp!
