In this intensive, we will explore the fundamentals of scene study, introduce students to dynamic acting methods and prepare them to approach work in the realm of the “straight play” with more confidence and charisma. A final casual presentation of scene work will take place on the last day of the camp session in our black box theatre.

  • At Steve & Kate’s, our camp philosophy is pretty simple: when you trust kids to take charge of their own learning, they will learn and grow in ways we can’t imagine. Some people call this approach “self-directed learning,” meaning we put the child in the driver’s seat of their learning experience, rather than an adult telling them what they should learn. This means giving kids the freedom to make their own choices, explore their passions, and trust their own judgment. We believe that these lessons are vital for helping children develop the confidence to grow into the adults they one day want to become, and unfortunately, that these lessons are seldom taught in school. Designed for kids entering Pre-K through 7th graders, we offer a massive choice of activities that cater to pretty much anything your child would be interested in. The deepest, most advanced programs at Steve & Kate’s are called Studios, which include Fashion (sewing and crocheting), Film (live-action and stop-motion animation), Coding and Robotics, Breadmaking, and Music. Designed by learning scientists and tested by kids, these studios offer a range of meaningful activities and cutting-edge technologies where campers can dig deep into their passions.
