BRIEF CAMP DESCRIPTION: At Childsplay Academy, young people work with top local theatre professionals. Classes cultivate theatre skills, while also developing a child's social, emotional, and intellectual skills. We maintain a low student teacher ratio and the professional staff of teaching artists utilize carefully designed exercises to ignite imaginations and inspire a love for the performing arts.

SPECIAL NEEDS CAMPERS: We have many special-needs students who have successfully participated in our classes. To set your child up for success in our program, it is important that you inform us of any special needs your child may have, and strategies that we can use to help your student be successful. If your child has special needs, please feel free to call 480-921-5751 to discuss how we can work together toward success in our program.
