Summer Spectacular Camp 2021

Summer Spectacular is BACK and with a 3rd Act this time!
We’ve added a 3rd session this summer! Each session is two weeks long. In these full-day camp sessions, students will explore what it takes to produce a play. From acting; dance, costume-design to marketing, all while learning collaboration, building self-esteem, and exercising their imagination. The camps culminate in a full scale production on the Hippodrome Mainstage! This years production is The Fantastic Mr.Fox by the amazing Roald Dahl.

Camp Season Safety Protocol

Wondering how we are able to have in-person camp?

Camps this year, as most public events, have changed just a smidge.
We are doing everything we can here at the Hippodrome Theatre to ensure the safety of your camper while still providing a creative outlet during these difficult times.

Here’s a few of our safety protocols for this upcoming camp season:

  • We are limiting capacity for each camp!
  • Social Distancing will be reinforced at all times including during camper pick-up and drop-off
  • Campers will be divided into smaller groups and given specific pick-up and drop-off times to ensure that we are limiting the number of people on the front porch!
  • We will be conducting temperature checks for entry into the Hipp
  • Campers (along with all Hipp staff) are required to wear masks while in the building
  • There will be a limit of 10 people to a room to ensure proper social distancing
  • Hourly hand-washing will be strictly reinforced
  • Bathrooms will be cleaned and sanitized every 2 hours
  • All spaces used by campers will be cleaned and sanitized every hour
  • Camper groups will have assigned bathrooms to maintain social distancing
  • Campers will remain in classes for 2 class periods while Teachers rotate among the groups

  • Snacks and lunches will rotate in such a manner that no more than 10 Campers will occupy a space at a time. Sharing snacks and lunches will be prohibited
  • All campers will be responsible to dispose of any unfinished snacks or lunches

We will continue to add and adjust our practices as we see fit. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact
