What are Holiday Camps like?
We are on a mission to improve the self-confidence, social skills and performance abilities of children across the world through theatre.
Our holiday camps are taught by professional actors from the UK, in which students learn self-confidence, public speaking and perform in a show to parents!
International Holiday Camps have a variety of course levels, suited to children from 4 to 17 years. Students are places in age specific groups of between 7 and 14 children per group. Each group takes part in activities suited to their age range with their tutor.
Students have the opportunity to improve their performance skills, learn about the entertainment industry and develop their social skills with mother-tongue English actors, in their local school!
With a professional English performance performed for their parents, students have the opportunity to develop their public speaking skills - a very useful tool for later in life.
In addition, with water games, language games, arts & crafts and lessons with native British actors our Theatre Camps are a great way to spend the summer!
