Mondays-Fridays, 9a-2p (with a performance for family/friends on Friday, July 28th @ 7pm)
Unleash your creativity at Camp Touchstone! Let your imagination run wild under the bright lights of the Touchstone stage while you learn about the magic of performance from professional theatre-makers. We focus on empowering campers through discovering the delight of play, the power of their own imagination and creative self-expression. Using theatre as a launching point, our campers learn to embrace who they are and follow their passions to develop their own distinctive voice. With games, activities, crafts, chill-out time, and more, this day camp allows participants to meet new friends and express their growing sense of self in a safe, playful, fun-filled environment. Take the plunge and discover the whole new world of possibilities that await you at Camp Touchstone!
A Day in the Life of Camp Touchstone

- Lunch – campers will bring their own lunches.
- Chill Out – a chance for introspection and time to relax and reflect on what they have learned today.
- Crafts – students create and build things with their own hands. An exploration into other forms of creative self-expression, with some practical applications for the final performance.
