Explore your creativity through acting, singing, dancing, role-playing games and visual arts organized around a fantastical theme that sparks imagination and inspiration. With a thrilling, magical adventure story inspired by Harry Potter, campers will learn new skills and create memories that last a lifetime as they cast spells, fight magical creatures and play the American version of the game Quidditch! The camp culminates in an informal performance where students share the songs, scenes, dances and art they have created.

Action-packed days begin with rousing group sing-alongs and continue with fun classes in movement, acting, music and art – with plenty of time for creative outdoor adventures like scavenger hunts! Campers will make new friends as they work together in small groups of kids their own age to create original songs and scenes, unleashing their imaginations through the performing arts.

“A wonderful learning experience and sense of community.”  Kaufman Music Center Student
