Summer Camps are still on!

Registration is open now, and we are continuing to plan with great excitement!

We are looking forward to having summer camps with the expectation that we will be gathering in person! We are also planning additional virtual camp options for those who are not ready to jump into camp face to face, and we have plans for our in person camps if things change. Please see more details about our response to Covid-19 this summer below!

If you were affected by Covid-19 in the area of finances, we don't want that to prevent you from coming to camp. Please email our Managing Director at md@cytsanantonio.org so we can help make camp possible for your student! We are so excited to continue to grow over the summer and have a ton of fun, whether we are in person, or staying at home!

Covid-19 and Summer Camps

Are you thinking about summer camps, but wondering how Covid-19 plays into all of this? We have got you covered. We have the following procedures in place to make sure that your camper is able to have an amazing summer while staying safe!
  1. We are closely watching and following government guidelines. We are looking to the CDC, federal, state, and local governments for current information as we have been over these past few months.
  2. We are increasing the amount of cleaning that is done during camp days. Our current cleaning protocols are already in line with expectations from the CDC, and we will be increasing the frequency of rigorous cleaning in our studio.
  3.  We will be having daily temperature and wellness checks before students are allowed into the studio.
  4. We will be continuing to emphasize personal hygiene and cleanliness! Handwashing and hand sanitizer already abound at CYT, and we will continue to set that example for our students.
  5. We will be making adjustments to our parent drop-off and pick-up as well as camp showcase performances so as to limit the amount of people in our studio at one time. More details on that will be sent to you before your camp begins!

CYT Camp Themes

Week-long musical theater days camps are offered during the summer months for students ages 4-18. Camps are designed to create a hands-on theater experience, and are focused on building performance skills, self-confidence, and teamwork. Typical camps include rotations through drama, dance, music, and craft workshops, a daily theme-related devotional, and a concluding showcase for family and friends!

Each week of camp features a creative theme, and the concluding Showcase is centered around it! Themes vary from year to year and change depending on age group.

Counselors

Camp staff includes professional local artists, CYT Production Artistic Teams, CYT alumni, and theater specialists. These counselors are high energy, experienced, and love working with kids! CYT aims to hire counselors who are great role models for our students. All CYT counselors have been background checked and adhere to our CYT Mission and Values.

Showcase

At the end of camp, students perform in a showcase that they have rehearsed for over the course of their fun-filled week. Parents get to come watch their kids perform the material they have learned in just a short week free of charge! Showcase is a celebration of the week’s work and give kids a glimpse into the energy and excitement of being part of a full CYT production.

FAQ's for Camps

What should I expect on the first day of camp?
One of our camp counselors will greet you and your child at the door! We'll collect paperwork from you, and then your child will head into our main Studio Room where we'll have games going on while the rest of the students arrive!

My child is 5 and will need some downtime during the day. Is there a nap or rest time scheduled for the camps with younger kiddos?
Absolutely! We do schedule in a 30 minute nap/rest break after lunch for our younger campers.

Is lunch included for campers?
No. You will need to pack a lunch for your child. We do, however, have snacks during camp! Additional snacks will be available for 50 cents.

What does my child need to bring to camp?
A water bottle, a pencil, closed toe shoes, lunch, any snacks they like, and a good attitude!

Teen Volunteers and Interns

Volunteering for CYT is not only good for future work and college applications, but it is also taken into consideration when CYT hires their paid summer camp staff positions as well. We have some exciting changes to our camp volunteer structure, and are looking forward to an awesome summer!

If you are CYT Student or recent graduate interested in working a CYT Summer Camp as a volunteer or un-paid Intern, we would encourage you to apply! Interested participants must be 14 at the beginning of the summer they are working.
