At Harand Camp EVERYONE is a STAR!
It is our goal for ALL campers to develop skills in the performing arts AND build self-confidence & self-esteem. We welcome all levels of experience and do not require auditions for admission.
In preparation for final performances, campers take daily classes in singing, dancing & acting. Occasional rehearsals are held in the evening (alternating with other activities). Sessions culminate with amazing large-scale performances in our beautiful, 400-seat, state-of-the-art theatre. Campers may also choose to enroll in extra arts courses such as costuming, technical theater, production / management, improv, stage makeup, stage combat, auditioning and more! These electives are optional and included in tuition. We recommend the first session for new Haranders!
1st Session: Musical Revue (6/18 -7/9)
