Idaho State University is excited to host the annual Summer Theatre Conservatory Camp. This camp will offer a unique, hands-on learning experience for junior high and high school-age kids of every performance and experience level. This camp will be held at the state-of-the-art Stephens Performing Arts Center on the Idaho State University campus in Pocatello, Idaho. It is a fun-filled week packed with an array of theatre classes, taught by community professionals, ISU’s outstanding Music and Theatre students, and Alumni.

The camp will include hands-on learning, keynote presentations and classes on performance, technical theatre, costuming and more. At the end of the camp, students will have the opportunity to perform for a chance to win scholarships. (For a complete list of workshops, click here)
