Palace Theatre Summer Camps 2024

Explore the world of theatre, develop rehearsal and audition skills, and meet new friends who share your love of performing on stage with our TWO different summer camps this year. Join our camps hosted and created by the Palace Theatre who is known for our outstanding Palace Conservatory for the Performing Arts theatre program.

We’re so excited to again offer the best Summer Camps around! 

Palace Theatre Camp

Ages 8-18 : They will be broken up by age in classes

This one-week camp is a high energy- fast paced week filled with all things theatre.  It will be a fun-filled week of activities and classes, such as set design, dance, improv, costuming, acting, and more!  The campers will spend time building props, taking dance classes, learning sewing skills, and much more. Spend time with us learning and building your craft! This camp does not put together a musical, they will spend more time learning in-depth and hands-on theatre skills to improve any young artist. This camp will feel similar to a sleep-away camp and give the camper an opportunity to meet new friends who love theatre.

Camp will end with a live on-stage recital showing off the skills the campers learned throughout the week. Each camper will receive a camp t-shirt and free admission to the performance for family members. Campers will watch a movie + popcorn and drink on Friday the 16th as a fun activity and way to relax and bond before their performance. The campers will need to pack their own lunches each day or purchase our lunch plan. Dinner is included for all campers on the evening of June 21st.  

Cost:  $385.00 for camp tuition, $435.00 for Camp tuition + lunch plan. 10% sibling discount. Summer camp offers a remarkable value at just around $12 per hour, covering childcare, engaging activities, and educational opportunities!

Shining Stars Camp *New!

Two camps: one for ages 8-18 and one for 18+

The Palace Theatre and A New Hope proudly sponsor Shining Stars Camp in partnership with Idaho Parents Unlimited.

We are elated to announce our partnership with "A New Hope" and "Idaho Parents Unlimited" to present the inaugural Shining Stars Camp. We are offering two camps, one for ages 8-18 and one for 18+. This unique camp has been meticulously designed to cater to our artists with special needs. Throughout the week, behavior interventionists provided by A New Hope, along with mentors from our outstanding Varsity Conservatory class and many other volunteers, will be there on-site to aid campers to receive the necessary support and assistance they need. Shining Stars Camp aims to nurture the passion for dancing, singing, and performing at everyone's own comfort level. As a special bonus, every camper will receive a camp t-shirt and complimentary tickets to their performance. We are eagerly anticipating the radiant performances from these stars.

For campers who may have sensory sensitivities, The Palace will have a designated "quiet area." Frequent snack and drink breaks are scheduled throughout the camp to keep everyone's spirits high and their stomachs content. Parents and guardians are more than welcome to stay during camp if it brings comfort to both the camper and themselves. As part of our intake process, we will inquire about any specific accommodations you or your camper may require for a successful camp experience. We will carefully review these requests before camp begins, aiming to ensure that each camper is matched with a buddy mentor who can best complement their skill level.

Cost:  $165.00 camp tuition for ages 19 and up; $20.00 for ages 8-18 through sponsorship support from Idaho Parents Unlimited. Tickets to the performance are complimentary.

Dates: June 26th, 27th, 28th. 

Location: The Palace Theatre

Hours: Child camp: 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM. Adult camp: 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM
