Shine in the Summertime!
A summer day camp for campers entering grades 2 - 9

Come join the fun at the Annex Children’s Theatre in Education’s (ACTE) Performing Arts Summer Day Camp! Each one-week session will give campers the opportunity to put together a musical, video-record it and screen it online for family and friends to watch! Campers will learn to act, sing, dance, make props and costumes. In addition to the creative arts component, campers will enjoy daily outdoor activities such as sports, cooperative games, and splash pad.We will spend most of our camp day outside either at Healey Willan Park, Clinton School’s field, or Bickford Park. We will go into St. Mary Magdalene Church to cool off, go to the washroom and to do some arts and crafts. To keep everyone safe we will continue with offering small cohort groups. Each cohort will have up to 10 people which will include staff. Siblings will stay together and we will do our best to keep family and friend groups together. If Toronto Public Health permits, we will add a few extra campers to each group.

ACTE ensures a supportive and inclusive environment where campers are encouraged to develop new skills, pursue existing interests and foster everlasting friendships.
