The Pumphouse Theatre Drama Day Camp is a great introduction to drama basics. Participants learn through dramatic arts to gain confidence, make friends and have fun!
Each day of the camp is divided into classes, covering a variety of acting techniques, speech, physical theatre play creation, and much more!. Emphasis is placed on group work that help to develop social and life skills.
