Globus Theatre is hosting three weeks of summer camps this year for ages 8 – 16. After the success of last year’s Downtown Detective Trail, Globus Theatre is delighted to bring this family friendly activity back. This is an interactive addition to its mainstage murder mystery The Great 44th Fowler’s Falls Fall Fair Disaster – and your child could be a part of it, says a media release.

The Downtown Detective Trail is a series of clue scenes in different spots around Bobcaygeon’s downtown. Youth participants in the summer camps will be introduced to the professional theatre process from auditioning for roles to rehearsals, and from curating elements of promotions to performing live for local audiences and visitors to the area.

Camp dates are the three weeks from July 25 to Aug. 13. Camps are half day sessions and participants can choose to come to the morning or afternoon session for two weeks or all three weeks. The first camp week is a rehearsal week where the kids will be cast in their roles and work with a professional director on a script written especially for them. The other two weeks are performance camps where the kids will participate in public performances of the Downtown Detective Trail.

Camp fees are $155 + HST which thanks to Globus Theatre’s funders and donors, is partially subsidized for everyone. Full subsidies are availablefor children who would love to participate but may not be in the financial position to do so, to ensure that this opportunity is available to everyone.  

We’re not leaving out the little ones either! From July 18-22, Globus Theatre is offering a Summer Drama Camp for ages 5-8, at a subsided cost of $75 + HST per camper. If you have a little one with a flair for the dramatic or who likes to be creative, our Summer Drama Camp could be the place for them!

Artistic Director, Sarah Quick says, “Last year Globus Theatre was able to offer kids a creative outlet and we saw how these camps not only fuel their passion for performance but boost confidence and self-esteem. Thanks to our donors and funding from the Bobcaygeon Legacy CHEST fund, we are able to offer this opportunity again in 2022!”
