Summer Camps

Bay Area Educational Theater Company, together with the San Mateo Department of Parks and Recreation, has been offering some of the best Summer Theater Camps on the Peninsula for 18 years. We know there are a lot of Summer Camps out there, but nobody knows Summer or Theater like we do.

Camp staff includes professional theater artists and educators who lead students through a diverse curriculum that is based on teamwork, confidence-building, and creative expression. Camps include acting, dancing, and singing classes, with additional classes in improvisation, costuming, and more! Each session ends with a musical production for family and friends.

We offer camps for two age groups:

  • Youth Summer Musical Camp – Ages 9 – 14
  • Children’s Summer Musical Camp – Ages 6-9

Camps are Monday – Friday. See below for times. New in 2019: Before and/or after care is included in the registration fee.
