RMT's Theatre Camps give kids an outlet to use their creativity and imagination in dramatic ways, at all ages and skill levels. Countless studies have shown arts education improves children's development and academic success. It's not just about singing and dancing. It's about teaching them teamwork, time management, focus, discipline, confidence and so much more!This week's camp will allow students to let the wild rumpus begin with Max and his wild friends!

Whole day and half day camps are available. Most camps end with a short performance for parents and friends. There are also before or after care options to add on as desired. Financial aid is available for those who qualify.

(Please note: camp WILL be held on July 4 for anyone who wishes to join.)
