Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A PRODUCTION (2-WEEK) CAMP AND A PERFORMANCE (1-WEEK) CAMP?
Performance camps are an equal split of camp and performance. Students will sing, dance and do scenes with an emphasis on skill building and having fun. Each student who wants a line will have one but roles are equitable. This camp will showcase their work on the Friday of camp during camp hours but the emphasis is not on the showcase performance.

Production camps are a bit less camp and more production. Lights, sound, costumes and sets are a part of this camp experience. Roles are given by audition although all students who enroll will be in the show. There is no guarantee that all students will have a line. 


HOW ARE CAMPS STAFFED?
All camps are staffed with a Camp Director and one counselor for every eight students enrolled. Production camps have a Director, Vocal Director and Choreographer that are in and out of rehearsal. Performance camps have a Vocal Director and Choreographer that are present all day.


HOW MANY KIDS WILL BE IN CAMP?

Monkey Business and The Rainbow Fish Musical are capped at 20 students.

Our one-week camps are capped at 65 students and our two-week camps are capped at 55 students.


TELL ME ABOUT THE RAINBOW FISH MUSICAL. HOW IS THIS DIFFERENT FROM PREVIOUS HIGH SCHOOL CAMPS?

This year, our high school students will be doing a Theatre for Young Audiences Production. As soon as students enroll in camp, they will receive their scripts and music to begin learning the material. During the week of camp, the cast will prepare up to five roles, build costumes, sets and props and then take the production on the road. For the rest of the summer, our cast will have the ability to perform all over the East Metro for daycares, summer programs, festivals and other child friendly events. Because several students will be prepared to play each role, not all cast members will be needed at each performance. 


IF MY CHILD IS ON THE BORDER OF AN AGE RANGE FOR CAMP, IS THERE ANY WIGGLE ROOM?

In places where the ages overlap, discuss with your child whether or not they are more comfortable as one of the older, or one of the younger participants in camp. Age, maturity, and experience are just a few of the considerations you should use in determining your camp selection. Although we offer guidelines for camp appropriateness, we understand there may be exceptions to the rule. Please contact Amanda Hestwood with questions.


WHAT FINANCIAL AID IS AVAILABLE?

Ashland offers financial aid for participants as we can. Financial aid will be given out shortly after the April 1st deadline and is determined by need and spread out over our camps. Rarely are we able to give financial aid for multiple camps to the same student. Payment plans are also an option.


ARE THERE DISCOUNTS?

The largest discount is the early-bird discount available for the month of February. Discounts for multi-student/multi-camp will begin following the month of February but will not be greater than the early-bird discount.


WHAT GRADE LEVEL SHOULD I REGISTER UNDER?
Please use the grade that the student is entering in the fall of 2019.


WHEN WILL CAMP COUNSELOR APPLICATIONS BE OPEN?
Please look for this information after Valentine's Day.
