DAMPA is excited to offer a variety of amazing camps this Summer! We have 2 main camps – Musical Theatre Camp and our Triple Threat Camp, which are both half day camps and will sell out very quickly. Due to high demand, we are offering 3 sessions of each.

For students who would enjoy an extended camp experience, we are offering several camps that take place directly after the half day camps. Please note, that some of these “add on camps” are only offered the first or last week of each session.

The week long camp will culminate in a small and super funny improv show for parents.
