Published 5:18 pm Thursday, May 20, 2021

Arts of the Pamlico is hosting several youth camps throughout the summer months of 2021. 

These camps are designed for children ages 6 to early teens. For older children and teenagers, volunteer and unpaid internship opportunities are available. All instructors for the camps will be college graduates in the theatre and art fields or local art teachers. 

Six week-long camps will be offered with different features each week. During July 12-16 and August 9-13, pottery camp will be offered during the morning session and theatre camp will be held during the afternoon session. July 19-23 offers mixed media in the morning session and stage combat during the afternoon session. Pottery camp will also be offered during the morning sessions of July 26-30, with movie camp being offered during the afternoon sessions that week. Mixed media will be offered during the morning sessions of August 2-6 and August 16-20, with music camp and dance camp being held during the afternoon sessions of those weeks.

Morning sessions will be held from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and afternoon sessions will be from 1:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. If a child is staying for both sessions, lunch needs to be sent with the child and a $10 fee will be required. All children must be picked up by 5:30 p.m. at the latest. A $25 fee will be imposed for every 15 minutes past 5:30 p.m. Camps will be available for $85 per camp for family members of AOP and $95 per camp for non-family members. Family memberships are available through AOP for $100 annually. Scholarships will also be available through Arts of the Pamlico. 

All money raised by the camp will go toward the costs of the program and Arts of the Pamlico. The camp will be held backstage in the Creation Station at the Historic Turnage Theatre in downtown Washington.
