Theater Camp

Dear Summer Campers, Families and Partners,

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainties it presents for group gatherings, St. Olaf has elected not to host programming, summer camps, events, or conferences during June, July, and August 2021. 

This was a very difficult decision as we carefully assessed the risks and weighed them with the benefits of different summer scenarios.  Certainly the availability of vaccines was considered as a reason to host a smaller version of summer offerings, but the COVID-19 virus’ continuing presence in Rice County and across the state continues to reflect a risk to our staff, students, faculty and guests.  We have made this decision with the welfare and safety of all at the forefront of our considerations.

We appreciate your partnership, interest and support of St. Olaf and we truly look forward to having the pandemic behind us and to welcoming camps, conferences and events to the St. Olaf campus in 2022.  

Sincerely,

College Events Team
St. Olaf College

Join us for an exciting experience at the St. Olaf theater camp. You’ll learn about many facets of theater from creative professionals. Explore everything from acting fundamentals to stage combat with others who love theater as much as you do.

This camp is an exciting, fun-filled experience where we stress the collaborative nature of live theater. Through teamwork, we create a safe environment that encourages participants to think creatively and expressively. Our goal is to teach, guide, and nurture the emerging theater artist as well as those interested in learning about the theater. This is a low-stress, high-energy experience. Come and have fun, make new friends and learn about the art and craft of theater on the beautiful St. Olaf campus in historic Northfield, Minnesota.

Students of all levels leave camp feeling more experienced in multiple areas of theater.  In addition to classes and rehearsal – all taught by talented instructors and guest specialists – the camp schedule includes nightly social activities.

Schedule

Check-in is on Sunday from 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm with check-out following the final showcase on Saturday from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm.
