Since 1994 ! GBTC's experienced staff will introduce your kids to stage performance and guide them toward self-expression.


GBTC offers weekly day camp programs during March Break. The program includes plays, mime, improvisation, theatre games, musical theatre, work with simple sets and costumes, and an end-of-week public performance. Also included are outdoor activities, swimming (at selected locations), games and sports.

GBTC emphasizes basic skills, appropriate to each individual age level, in areas such as voice, movement, working with scripts, clear speech, expressing emotions, and developing character; we also work to encourage participation and develop confidence. We offer a low ratio (between 7:1 and 8:1) of campers to staff, so that each camper gets sufficient individualized attention. In addition, each age group prepares its own segment of the end-of-week performance, so that everyone participates equally, as much as possible.

The camp is a great way to meet new friends, learn new skills, and try out new tricks ! GBTC's theatre camps are designed to spark the interest of young people who want to act out interesting character roles, and more ! They'll act, sing, dance and participate in stagecraft and theatre games. There's something for everyone, and enough variety to keep campers interested, attentive and involved for the full day. Imaginations will soar to meet each new creative challenge.

The Friday end-of-week shows are exciting and intense, focusing all of the campers' acquired skills and dynamic energy to be shared with family and friends, in a fun setting that highlights each camper's talents and abilities. The confidence gained is something the kids retain long after the last day of camp. GBTC's enthusiastic, caring staff create a warm, supportive environment where campers will feel at home, and be ready to explore and discover. At the end of the day, each and every camper leaves with the joy of participation, and a sense of belonging and accomplishment.

This program is offered at 15 separate locations;  please visit our Web site at http://www.gbtc.com to see the full list.

Character Development:

  • Interpersonal skills: Theatre combines the creative ideas and abilities of its participants. This cooperative process includes discussing, negotiating, rehearsing, and performing.
  • Creativity: Making creative choices, thinking of new ideas, and interpreting familiar material in new ways are essential to drama. Einstein said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge.”
