Summer Camp Spotlight: Arts Live Theatre builds confidence, creativity!

arts live headerNote from the mamas: This sponsored post is about one of our Summer Camp Guide’s featured camps. As always, the opinions you read here are completely our own. For info on this and other camps in the area, check out the complete Summer Camp Guide.

We love drama camps for the main reason that they’re fun!

But there are also benefits beyond the fun, such as memorization skills, confidence in front of a crowd and good old adaptability in the face of changing circumstances. Theatre play also encourages a kid’s creativity.

Arts Live summer camps sunMark Landon Smith and the other folks at Arts Live Theatre have been working with kids for many years to bring out all these great qualities. And they’ve dreamed up some great drama camps for various ages this summer in June, July and August.

There are multiple camps to choose from, depending on your child’s age and the weeks you’d like to enroll them at Arts Live.
