“My son was eager to do the tasks and participate. I actually saw a side of him that I hadn’t before. He was confident and happy in this camp whereas I’ve seen his struggle with self confidence in the past in other situations.” – Parent of a Happy Camper

“Excellent way to enhance creativity in a safe environment. The presenter was extremely engaging and supportive throughout. Extremely spontaneous and organic flow to the whole camp that left my kiddo very excited and engaged throughout.” – Parent of a Happy Camper

Alberta Theatre Projects is excited to be bringing back Play Dates, a series of online digital day camps! These digital day camps will consist of a combination of both active instructional time and independent activities to entertain your child for the day while limiting the screen time required. Each camp will take place during a CBE or CSSD scheduled non-instructional Professional Development (PD) day.

With each day camp focusing on a different theme of theatre performance and creation, Play Dates camps will help kids hone kids’ creative skills through fun, imaginative and engaging activities.

Students are welcome to sign up for any number of camps – no prior experience is necessary! Students who attend all camps during the season will come away with fundamental performance and theatre creation skills.

How does it work?

The day before the camp, we will reveal the theme for the class as well as provide any necessary materials to aide you in the camp (including a private zoom link which can be accessed 10 minutes prior to the start of the day).

Each camp will have 3 separate 60-minute instructional blocks throughout the day. In between these blocks, campers will be sent off to work on activities independently at home, and then share their work with the group upon returning for the next instructional block. No parent supervision or participation is required!
