Junior Camps

Texas Arts Project has become the most-looked-for­ward-to event of the Summer in our house. This sum­mer will be the 4th year that our daugh­ter, Josie, will attend TAP camp. Her love for musi­cal the­ater was cat­a­pult­ed after her first sum­mer at TAP. Her expe­ri­ence there has giv­en her the skills to audi­tion, to mem­o­rize lines, and to per­form on stage, all with con­fi­dence of a pro. She has made life­long friends from all over the United States. Ginger, Kelly, and their team are all pro­fes­sion­als with open hearts and open minds — deter­mined to show­case your child’s tal­ent, what­ev­er it may be.

JUNIOR SLEEP-AWAY CAMPS FOR AGES 9-13

Junior sleep-away Camps, for ages 9 – 13, focus on singing, act­ing and danc­ing. Structured class­es com­bined with an intense rehearsal process and a lot of fun, make the Junior Camp a won­der­ful expe­ri­ence for the young artist. Broadway style songs and dances are rehearsed and per­formed at the end of the ses­sion.

Junior Camp is devot­ed to the­atri­cal train­ing where campers are chal­lenged in an encour­ag­ing envi­ron­ment, stretch­ing to reach their indi­vid­ual poten­tial on a dai­ly basis. When they are not train­ing, campers enjoy planned activ­i­ties includ­ing swim­ming, arts and crafts, kite fly­ing, scav­enger hunts and more. Campers are assigned to big broth­ers and big sis­ters from Senior Camp for joint activ­i­ties dur­ing the week. Each ses­sion cul­mi­nates in a final per­for­mance show­case.

*NOTE: All campers for TAP Junior, TAP Senior, and TAP Advanced are required to audi­tion at the begin­ning of camp. Auditions are held for many rea­sons. The staff will get the oppor­tu­ni­ty to know all the campers and their strengths and weak­ness­es in all types of per­for­mance. Additionally the staff will be able to make cast­ing deci­sions about the final show­case, place campers in the cor­rect class lev­els, and make sure that all class­es are chal­leng­ing and appro­pri­ate. All campers will par­tic­i­pate in mul­ti­ple sec­tions of the audi­tion. The audi­tion process will be con­duct­ed in a pro­fes­sion­al and encour­ag­ing envi­ron­ment. It will be fun, but we are expect­ing your per­son­al best. Visit Placement Auditions for more infor­ma­tion.
