NOTE: CCCT follows the recommendations and orders of the CDC and Contra Costa County Health Office in the operation of its 2022 Drama Camps. Masks and proof of full vaccination, including boosters, are required for participation in all CCCT activities.

Although the “A” used to stand for “Advanced”, A Camp has always been open to teen actors of any skill level. Today, we just call it A Camp, as we have since its inception.

In our two-week long sessions, our “A-Campers” learn and build on theatre skills while working on a culminating performance. We search for compelling, 2-3 person scenes from professional plays and cast the campers in roles that will challenge them. Skills and workshops this year will include improv, projection, staging, character work, clowning, stage combat, and more!

Campers also get the experience of being a part of an ensemble, the performance equivalent of a team!

2022 Session Dates:

Session 1: Jun 13-24, 9 am to 4 pm

Session 2: Jun 27-Jul 8 (no camp on July 4), 9 am to 4 pm

Session 3: Jul 11-22, 9 am to 4 pm

Session 4: Jul 25-Aug 5, 9 am to 4 pm

Every camper receives the following:

  • A CCCT 2022 Drama Camp T-shirt
  • Theatre training
  • Individualized Attention
  • An opportunity to perform on stage
  • A special award to commemorate the two weeks!

Tuition

Cost is $850 per session. Tuition is due at the time of enrollment to ensure your child’s spot in the program. We cannot hold spots without payment. Payment plans are available in specific cases. Need-based scholarships are available. Registrations are non-refundable.


CCCT Behavior Policy

CCCT has a zero tolerance policy for any violent or inappropriate behavior toward other campers or staff members. If violent or inappropriate behavior occurs, we will issue an immediate dismissal.

CCCT expects all campers to respond to instructions, adhere to safety guidelines, and participate with the group.

Behavioral issues will receive ONE warning. If the issue persists, CCCT reserves the right to disinvite the camper in question from camp.

On the first day of camp, we have a friendly “audition” where each camper gets on stage and performs a piece in front of everyone. The purpose of this is for the staff to see each camper’s skill and comfort level on stage on day one. The piece must be a two-minute (or less) memorized audition piece in English. This can be a poem, standard monologue, passage from a book, etc. Some students even recite the ABCs! Pick something easy and fun. We are looking for stage presence, vocal projection, and of course, pizzaz! Encourage your child to shine!

Every day of camp is important.

Missing any part of a day could mean that your child will miss out on filming, rehearsals, or special projects. If your child cannot come to camp for any reason, please email as soon as possible.

Every camper must bring lunch and snacks daily. We do not provide food except for dinner on performance day.

Campers should wear comfortable clothing that allows for freedom of movement, and shoes that are secured with laces or straps.

After scripts are given out, campers must bring it back to camp every day.

We start each day at 9 am with games and exercises, so it is important to be on time! If you are going to be late, please email .

Please make arrangements for your child to be picked up promptly at 4:00 pm. You may authorize your child to walk/bike home. If your child is not picked up by 4:05, a $2/minute late fee will go into effect. This late fee will be collected by cash or check.

CCCT does not provide supervision before or after camp.

The performance consists of the scenes that campers have worked on during the camp session.

It will take place at 7:00 pm (doors open at 6:30 pm) on the second Friday of camp. Campers will arrive at 9 am and stay until the show is done, around 8:30 pm.
