Creativity Camps

During the 2018 April, July and October school holidays, Merrigong Theatre Company will again hold its renowned Creativity Camps.

Open to any child 5 - 13 years of age, these camps build self-confidence, creative and social skills. The perfect school holiday activity.

Under the guidance and supervision of professional performing artists and qualified educators, children will be taken on a journey of creative exploration culminating in a performance for family and friends at the conclusion of each camp.

Creativity Camps aim to expand each Camper’s imaginative world. Children will develop their story-telling and acting skills through improvisation and other activities, and get the opportunity to learn about set, costume and prop design by working with a professional theatre designer who, in collaboration with them, creates the design elements for the end-of-week performance. 

Our camps are fun, educational and encourage Campers to develop ongoing friendships with other like-minded children, many of whom attend the camps on an ongoing basis.

Running Time: 6 hrs each day (including lunch break)
Age Groups: 5 – 7 years, 8 – 10 years, and 11 – 13 years
Cost: $290
Discount: 20% discount for additional siblings or when booking all three camps*.

*Please note that tickets for additional siblings must be purchased in person through our Box Office.

Creativity Camp prices include a ticket to see their respective school holiday show. Bookings online or by phone incur a $6.90 fee per transaction.
