Show Information

In-person summer camps set to launch in August at Chicago Children’s Theatre

Chicago Children’s Theatre intends to start in-person camps the week of August 3. In-person camps run one, two or three weeks. Time is Monday through Friday, 9:30 a.m.–4 p.m. Free before-care is offered 8:15 a.m.–9:30 a.m. Free aftercare runs 4–:5:45 p.m. Tuition is $485 for one week camps; $970 for two week camps. Limited financial aid is available.

Mainstage Show Camp: X-Marks the Spot Ages 8–11
August 3–7 (1 week)

Children will rehearse, create costumes, paint sets, act, sing, and dance as they prepare to star in a live production of one of Chicago Children’s Theatre’s recent mainstage shows. This camp springs from CCT’s multisensory theater experience X-Marks the Spot, inspired by children with vision impairment but intended for all audiences. It’s ideal for kids who want an inclusive camp experience.

Specialty Camp: Camp Myth with Silk Road Rising Ages 6–11
August 10–14 (1 week)

Silk Road Rising explores what it means to be Americans by shifting and expanding our communities’ narratives. In this camp, students will explore the enchanting stories of Egypt and India. Campers will then use these stories to create their own show using acting, dance, song, and craft, concluding with a show in CCT’s Pritzker Family Studio Theatre for family and friends.

Camp Red Kite Ages 8–14 and Ages 15–22
August 10–28 (3 weeks) Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m.–12 p.m.
Tuition: $825

Camp Red Kite is a summer arts camp tailored specifically to the unique interests and needs of young people on the autism spectrum. The program is led by a team of artists, administrators, and special education teachers dedicated to creating a safe, welcoming, and comfortable environment for children affected by autism. Each day, Camp Red Kite campers will move between classes in Drama, Art, Music, and Movement. Red Kite staff ensures a comfortable environment for all campers and a highly-structured schedule. Each camper receives a Social Story prior to camp, and plenty of personal attention. Campers are encouraged to participate in activities in their own unique way. Camp culminates in a final sharing of the Camp Red Kite experience with family and friends and a potluck lunch.

Mainstage Show Camp: Hip Hop Alice Ages 6–11
August 17–28 (2 weeks)

Over the course of two weeks, children will rehearse, create costumes, paint sets, act, sing and dance as they prepare to star in one of Chicago Children’s Theatre’s mainstage shows. On the final day the campers will perform the musical live for family and friends on the stage of Chicago Children’s Theatre’s Pritzker Family Studio.

Theatre Adventure Camp: The Monster Chronicles Ages 6–11
August 31–September 4 (1 week)

Make new friends while creating a big, wonderful show. Wield a sword, fly to the sun, build a kingdom, live underwater, battle giant monsters and befriend beasts. Travel the universe! At the end of the week, campers will perform a live, original monster saga in CCT’s Pritzker Family Studio Theatre.

Note: In-person camps will be held in strict, careful compliance with the state and city’s health, safety and social distancing mandates. Register early at chicagochildrenstheatre.org as space is limited, but please know: if you register for an in-person camp that’s canceled due to COVID-19, refunds will be offered.
