SUMMER CAMP – MAINSTAGE ages 10+

A STAGES MAINSTAGE SUMMER CAMP UPDATE

STAGES Youth Theater is conducting a limited, in-person summer camp program for students ages 10+ –  with adaptations during this unprecedented pandemic experience. These modifications may feel jarring and restrictive for returning students, but there are so many things to look forward to! We are particularly excited about learning new skills, working together to safely address new challenges with creativity, and having an opportunity to share support, camaraderie, and friendship during what has been an isolating time for so many young people (and their teachers).

We invite you to read our most up-to-date STAGES Summer Guidelines. These health and safety policies are based upon the recommendations and guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the State of Maine, and developed further through discussions with peer summer camp providers in Maine and across the United States. Our program and these policies can change at any time, based on the evolving pandemic situation.

If you are interested in enrolling for an upcoming STAGES summer program, please review the program descriptions below for more information ahout enrollment caps, schedule modifications, and other program-specific details. Please note also that all summer students will need internet access and a device capable of recording capable of recording sound (phone, laptop, tablet, etc).

We thank you for your patience at this unprecedented time. Please do not hesitate to contact us any time with questions or concerns.

REFUND POLICY (updated May 8, 2020):
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the STAGES summer no-refund policy has been updated to allow full summer camp refunds in the form of account credits that can be used toward future programs, should families decide not to participate in programs for which they’ve already registered. Please contact hello@stagesacademy.com for more information.

“Being able to think outside of the box and put yourself out there, especially as a child, teaches you how to be a confident, well-rounded person. I know I don’t know where I would be without youth theater.”

Eliza Skidgel, STAGES Alum & Employee

“Being in productions with kids who were older than me exposed me to a sense of artistic community that I never saw at school or at home.”

Owen Doane, STAGES Alum
