Vancouver Westside Musical Theatre Camps - Spring & Summer 2022
Join our Theatre camps on Vancouver’s Westside, right on Burrard St & 16th Avenue!
Half day camps for 4-6yrs & Full Day camps for 6-13yrs.
Our Vancouver Westside location is right on Burrard street and 16th Avenue, easily reached via the Burrard St bridge from downtown Vancouver or the main routes on Vancouver’s Westside and Kitsilano.
Camps the place in Canadian Memorial Church – Centre for Peace (although we wouldn’t call our camps ‘peaceful’!) This a bright and spacious facility perfect for Lights Up! We have ample room and outdoor space to work with, there’s free parking in the church lot and on nearby streets. We are also right opposite Granville Park which makes a fantastic lunchtime destination!
Vancouver Westside Camps run at:
Canadian Memorial United Church – Centre for Peace, 1825 W 16th Av (and Burrard St), Vancouver, BC, V6J 2M4
Students are split into age groups and spend the week exploring our fun themes, building friendships, and dipping their toes into the wonderful world of musical theatre. No previous experience is necessary to join our camps!
Each themed camp is designed to appeal to all students and are led by our experienced and energetic staff. Campers build scenes and learn songs and dances that come together in a fabulous show which friends and family are invited to attend on the last day of camp!
In between classes of singing, dancing, and acting, our days are rounded out with arts & craft sessions and outdoor time for activities, games and breaks!
Like all Lights Up programs, our camps teach children to work in teams, build confidence, make new friends, of course, Sing, Dance & Act, but most of all HAVE FUN!
What are the camp age ranges? Can kids do either half or full day camps?
Half day camps are for kids ages 4-6yrs. Full day camps are for 6-13yrs. If your child is 6yrs old they can attend either the half or full day camps.
As Half day camp material is designed for children 4-6yrs, students over 6 yrs of age may find the pace of our half day camp too slow, so please register for the full day options.
Students ‘almost’ 6yrs during your chosen camp CAN attend the Full day camp as kids are split into age appropriate groups. Please use your judgement if you think they are ready for 6 hours of camp each day.
