After much consideration we have decided to cancel our Spring Break Camp.

We believe this is a conscientious response to our community’s current health concerns and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.

Hipp Kids Camp

June 1-5, June 29-July 3 & July 27-31

Full and Half Day Options Available
Session two can be selected day-by-day

Ages 5-8

This summer, Hipp Kids will bring a story to life on the Hippodrome’s second stage. During each one-week session, campers will exercise their bodies, voices and imaginations while learning their roles and developing their characters. They’ll have fun collaborating on behind-the-scenes elements of props, costumes, sets and lights. Then, each Friday, when each camp performs their play, we’ll all delight in what they create and share with us on stage at the Hipp!

Summer Spectacular
