SEGAL ACADEMY CAMPS
For grades 2-6
Our Ped Day and Passover camps are the best of what the Academy has to offer all in a very short period of time! Campers will participate in all kinds of performing arts activities- theatre games and exercises, dancing, singing and circus! Campers will spend the day with a variety of our incredibly talented and professional instructors. It’s a great way to see if they would want to come back for a longer period of time!

Our ‘Intermission’ Spring Break camp gives campers a chance to see what it would be like to be in one of our year-long after-school courses, all in 1 week! Campers will receive training in the performing arts- drama, singing, dancing and circus- and they will incorporate their new skills into a short presentation on the last day!

"I want to mention that my daughter loved her time at your Spring Break Camp so much, she wants to do both sessions of summer camp. Very well run and a joy to see how much my child has learned and grown in such a short time."

-Cara Webb (Jasmine's mom)

Our 2 week summer camp will give campers an opportunity to learn about acting, theatre and performance.
