Summer camp at TAP offers camps for teens in Filmmaking, Musical Theatre, Acting, Songwriting & Technical Theatre/Design.

Camp Philosophy

Texas Arts Project offers a per­son­al­ized artis­tic jour­ney com­bin­ing inter-dis­ci­pli­nary course work, indi­vid­ual atten­tion from indus­try pro­fes­sion­als, artis­tic chal­lenges encour­ag­ing growth, and a safe space for stu­dents from all back­grounds to over­come per­son­al artis­tic obsta­cles.

There is no bench­mark at TAP camp. We believe that with direc­tion and moti­va­tion, each camper can push beyond his or her per­ceived per­son­al lim­i­ta­tions. Teachers use the small class­es as an oppor­tu­ni­ty to advance and enhance each stu­den­t’s per­son­al jour­ney. Fast-paced, pro­fes­sion­al-style rehearsals and film shoots allow campers to excel as both artists and peo­ple. Campers leave with a sense of per­son­al ful­fill­ment, often exhibit­ing greater self-con­fi­dence, a deep­er pas­sion for their art form and a true com­mit­ment to them­selves, their art, and the peo­ple around them.

St. Stephen’s, an equal oppor­tu­ni­ty employ­er, fol­lows a pol­i­cy of nondis­crim­i­na­tion with respect to employ­ees and job appli­cants.
