Arena Stage at the Mead Center for American Theater will host its second annual Camp Arena Stage Open House on Saturday, January 12, 2019 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Mead Center (1101 Sixth Street, SW). The day features sample activities and classes taught by camp staff and provides an opportunity for prospective campers and parents to experience a taste of Camp Arena Stage and have all their camp questions answered. The event is FREE and children ages 8-15 are welcome to participate in sample workshops and classes. No reservations are required.

Camp Arena Stage is a multi-arts summer day camp for 8 to 15-year-olds, and this January at the Camp Arena Stage Open House, children can experience a taste of summer by participating in scheduled activities, workshops and classes focusing on theater, musical theater, visual art, singing and dance. Registration for Camp Arena Stage 2019 begins on December 2, 2018.

An immersive day camp, Camp Arena Stage is held at Georgetown Visitation Preparatory School (1524 35th Street, NW). Campers create their own schedule of five daily activities to explore, discover and create the art they love. They have more than 75 activities to pick from. Every day at the Noontime Show, campers can share what they've been working on at camp, a talent from home or an act they've made with a friend.

Now in its 15th summer, Camp Arena Stage's 4-Week Intensive will run June 24-July 19, 2019 and the 2-Week Session will run July 22-August 2, 2019. Campers can opt to do both sessions for six weeks of art. All take place Monday-Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Early drop-off and extended day are available for an additional fee. Proceeds help support educational programs that are offered at low or no charge to area schools by the Community Engagement division of Arena Stage.
