Summer Stage is BACK!
The premiere summer theater day camp in the area is back for its 12th year! About 600 teens and kids have made this camp a staple of their summer in the previous eleven years that ReCYS founder, Blaine Halverson, has directed it.
Every camper gets a part! Over a period of just three weeks, students will rehearse and stage this family favorite that has been adapted and abbreviated for young performers!
Again this year, “Summer Stage” and its performances will be hosted by Cedarbrook Church. Our campers are fortunate to enjoy the best facilities available in the local area for a program like this! The spacious, air-conditioned surroundings ensure their indoor comfort. Meanwhile, outside there is ample place to run and play.
Our “second to none” staff includes the director, a team of 2-3 adult teaching artists and 3-5 experienced teen mentors. We work together to create a “time flies when you’re having fun” schedule mixing coaching, mentorship, rehearsal and creative play.
Summer Stage is about the student! We use theater (The ULTIMATE team sport) to help our students develop important life skills like teamwork, communication, commitment and self-confidence. And we do it through positive interaction with REAL humans!
Summer Stage has limited space and fills quickly. Please don’t hesitate to email your questions directly to Blaine at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Please note: A limited number of students CAN be enrolled in Menomonie School District summer school for the first week of camp provided they can come to camp in the afternoons. It is important, however, that this is communicated in advance of camp so our schedule can be adapted as much as possible.
A “Pre-Camp” orientation and audition for parents and campers will be held sometime in the latter half of June. Time/date/location to be determined.
