Dance Class in our Theatre Arts Camp

Welcome to summer 2021! We are excited to safely welcome students back into our building for camps this year. Our one-week camps focus on the process of creating theatre through fun, imaginative, nurturing creative play and ensemble building. With offerings for age 4 – high school, there’s something for everyone. Come join the fun! Registration open now!

As you can imagine, summer 2021 is going to look a little different from years past, but we’re still going to have a lot of fun! We will offer a thoughtful but smaller selection of camps than prior years and numerous safety procedures will be in place in order to prioritize the health and safety of our students, staff and teaching artists. You can read more about our safety protocols for in person education programming here on our website. These protocols may change slightly before summer camp begins based on what we learn in the coming months before camp begins. Please email us with any questions at Education@nullRaleighLittleTheatre.org

Summer Camp 2021

We can’t wait to air-five all our students this summer! Students age 4 – Grade 12 will have a few one-week camp options to choose from between June 14 – August 20.

Grades listed reflect students’ grades in Fall 2021.

Camp hours are 9am-4pm unless otherwise noted. Registration closes for a camp when the camp is at capacity or one week prior to the camp start date.

What to Expect this Summer

Please make sure you read and understand all of the information below before registering your student for summer camp. Email any questions to Education@nullRaleighLittleTheatre.org, and we are happy to help!

Safety protocols and program adjustments

This summer, there will be a limit of 10 campers per camp (a maximum of 20 students per week at RLT) as well as required masks and temperature checks for all students, staff and teaching artists. You can read more about the details of these safety protocols here.

Extended care

Extended care is available Mon-Fri 8-8:45am and Mon-Thu until 5:30pm for an additional fee. This option is available to add when you register for camp. There is no extended care on Friday afternoons due to the camp sharing schedule.


Scholarships are available if cost is a barrier to participation for you or someone you know. Please click here to access our brief youth scholarship form. Please submit the scholarship form before you register.

Payment plans

Payment plans are available for summer camp. A $50 deposit is required upon registration to reserve your spot and then the payment plan is automatically set up through our registration system. This deposit is nonrefundable. 

Cancellation and Refund policy

The $50 deposit and registration system fee is nonrefundable if you cancel your registration at any point. If you cancel more than 2 weeks from the start date of camp, you would receive a refund of anything paid outside of the $50 deposit and registration system fee. If you cancel within 2 weeks from the start of camp, then a credit for your payment amount would be issued. This credit is valid through June 2022.

Virtual offerings

Virtual summer classes may be added to our summer program schedule. If these classes move forward, registration will open in May on our website.

Indoor Gatherings

Summer camps will take place primarily indoors. Our outdoor spaces will be used for all snack and lunch breaks throughout the camp day.

End of Camp Sharings

One of the most gratifying things about our programs is when students get to share their work with an audience. RLT is exploring various ways to accomplish this safely. We will let you know closer to the start of camp what this might look like for students.

Teens on Stage / Teens Backstage

Our Teens on Stage / Teens Backstage summer conservatory program will present a site specific production of William Shakespeare’s As You Like It this summer in the Stephenson Amphitheatre and Raleigh Rose Garden.
