At Traveling Players Ensemble's award-winning summer camp, small troupes of actors are carefully guided by professional theatre artists to perform in outdoor amphitheaters. Traveling Players offers a range of programs for campers between 3rd - 12th grade, from one week beginner actor training all the way up to advanced, intensive acting training in our 5- and 7-week summer day camp programs with a weekly overnight and a professional-level tour.

Each session culminates in a fully staged and designed performance which tours to several locations, thereby cultivating stronger, more adaptable and capable artists and individuals.

Traveling Players emphasizes a meaningful engagement with nature. Our unique day camp (Monday-Friday) features a weekly campout — when performers learn Leave No Trace camping techniques, to pitch tents and cook outdoors. As artists and backpackers, campers learn self-reliance and creative problem solving, and gain an appreciation of challenges and beauty.
