Whether you like to play an instrument, dance, act, or sing, this is the camp for you! Hartford Performing Arts Camp is a week- long day camp for children currently in 5th, 6th, 7th or 8th grade, who have an interest in and/or passion for the performing arts. Campers will select to participate in band and/or musical theater as well as an arts elective. On Friday afternoon, our camp culminates with a community performance. At camp, we love to get outside for HPAC Olympics, when campers get to play a variety of fun summer games like a water balloon toss or a relay race. To play in the band, campers need to have been playing a band instrument for at least one year.
Participants need to bring lunch every day except Friday.
A t-shirt and Friday’s lunch is included in the registration fee.
1. All campers must be entering grades 6-9.
2. To sign up for musical theater, you just need to
have a desire to act, sing, and dance… no
3. To sign up for band, you must have previously
been playing a concert band instrument for at
least one year (flute, oboe, clarinet, bass clarinet,
saxophone, trumpet, French horn, trombone,
baritone, tuba, percussion).
4. To sign up for band, you must bring your own
instrument to camp (if you have been borrowing
one from the Hartford School District, you may
continue to do so).
5. Campers should come to camp equipped with:
sneakers, water, instrument, lunch, and
comfortable clothing. We do play games outside
for the HPAC Olympics!
FYI: Due to the nature of our performance-driven
rehearsals, campers should not miss any part of
the camp day.
