Sierra Canyon’s Summer Theater Day Camp
An Inspiring Experience for the curious and creative
Sierra Canyon’s Summer Theater Day Camp provides an opportunity for young actors to refine and advance one’s curiosity towards the Performing Arts by joining an inclusive and creative community at the SC Summer Camp held by Sierra Canyon’s Director of Performing Arts, Mario Garcia. Mr. Garcia will be joined by a number of his talented colleagues to help teach lessons that range from theater warm-ups, improv games, scene studies, monologues, voice lessons, and fight choreography. The purpose of this camp is to help nurture and provide a welcoming space that will encourage each camper to find their voice and allow their true talent to develop confidence and creativity on stage, and in life.
