Summer Camps

2021 in person Summer Camps!

We are starting in person camps on July 12 this year.

We will have virtual camps in June.

Virtual Camps here!

How will we keep your child healthy?

Guidelines and regulations are changing quickly. At this time the plan we have in place is:

  • All teachers will be vaccinated for Covid
  • All teachers will wear masks. If we are in level 2 or above then all campers will also wear masks.
  • No more than 10 kids in a group.
  • Frequent hand washing and sanitation.
  • Daily cleaning of surfaces.


Summer is just around the corner and that means – SUMMER CAMP!!!!

Our camps are usually 50% or more returners because we have low staff/child ratios, super fun classes, lots of community time to make friends, and one of the coolest locations ever.

In the Hideout Camps kids learn the basics of improv, story telling, and stagecraft mostly through playing games – because you learn better when you are having fun! Everyday we play games, create stories, perform scenes, do crafts and generally have a blast. On the final day we show off our amazing new skills in a performance for friends and family.

This year we plan to bring in improv for social media – such as youtube or your own private video. Kids LOVE performing for social media and this year we are leaning in to this.  We’ll still have all the fun classes and game that we normally have, but this year we add the challenge of showing off for the camera! Imagine how fun it will be to have your family and friends seeing the videos that your kids make!  For parents that are concerned about their kids faces being on social media, we will use puppets instead.
