About CYT Camps

Christian Youth Theater offers week-long musical theater day camps every summer for students ages 5-13. Camps are designed to create a hands-on theater experience, and are focused on building performance skills, self-confidence, and teamwork.

Camps include team competitions and fun games as well as rotations through drama, dance, and vocal workshops, a daily theme-related devotional, and an impressive concluding showcase for family and friends. It's a week of CYT's positive and encouraging atmosphere, and every camper gets the opportunity to perform on stage!

Camp Policies

Late Fee
Due to the fact that we rent our facilities we are unable to provide before or after care. There is a $50 late fee for campers picked up past 3:15pm

Age Policy
Campers must turn the age of eligibility by Monday of the camp they wish to attend. For example, a camper must be at least 5 years old by Monday of camp in order to attend Mini camp. 

Potty Trained
All campers must be potty trained to attend camp.

Allergy Alerts
If there is a food allergy at camp all families will be alerted and will be asked not to bring in that allergen. 

Special or Specific Needs
CYT openly welcomes all children. If your child is able to function in a group/class setting, but just needs extra help or attention our counselors will work alongside them to make sure they have a phenomenal camp experience. Once registered, you will receive a form that allows you to explain any special or specific needs that your child has - the more info we have the better! That information is shared only with your child’s counselors so they can help your child have a fun and successful week of camp. If your child requires one-on-one attention and assistance we require a family member to stay with them at camp. CYT is unable to provide personal aides for campers. 

Christian Youth Theater
CYT holds to Judeo-Christian values of family, community, leadership and positive encouragement. We welcome all kids of varying faiths, backgrounds and beliefs.
