 It isn’t too late to sign up for Virginia Rep’s In-person Summer Camps for Grades 1 - 12!

Virginia Rep’s fun-filled camps are full of creative exploration and imaginative play. Our unique theatre camps provide exciting performance opportunities for students from 1st - 12th grade. These camps are designed with the novice and seasoned performer in mind.  With instruction by some of Virginia’s finest theatre artists and educators, your dramatic student will have a theatrical experience like no other!


Health & Safety at Camp

Socially distanced, masked, in-person summer camps kick off July 12! The new Covid-19 protocols include regular sanitation of high touch areas, daily temperature checks, smaller class sizes and lower camp capacity. In order to ensure the safety of all participants, campers and staff are required to wear a face mask covering their nose and mouth at all times. Additionally, every member of Virginia Rep’s camp staff will be fully vaccinated prior to the start of camp. Offering a safe and clean environment for educating your children is our highest priority and we are very much looking forward to welcoming our patrons and students back to the theatre.
