Compass Creative Dramatics camp is a five-day theatre program that involves daily rehearsals and workshops taught by Chicago theatre professionals. The week culminates in a public performance… 2017’s camp performed our own musical adaptation of Wizard of Oz (shown above)!

Your students will learn and grow throughout the week.

This camp encourages kids to have fun and explore the dramatic arts by participating in a full production. In addition, the daily interactive theatre workshops & activities will guide your student through the discovery of new topics and themes. Summer camp is a great opportunity to make new friends. Students are grouped by age for the afternoon activities, allowing age-appropriate lesson planning. They are integrated during rehearsals, so your student will learn how to collaborate with students from first grade up through recent high school grads!

CCD encourages kids to expand their horizons by stretching their creativity muscles. Our programming encourages imagination and critical thinking, providing a safe environment in which kids can take healthy risks and explore their strengths and weaknesses.

Throughout the week, our students learn about themselves and discover how to turn their limitations into assets. Summer Camp is the perfect place to be an individual, valued part of a collaborative team. At camp, kids will be part of a collaborative artistic process that encourages teamwork, while still inspiring students to take ownership of and pride in their unique ideas and capabilities.
