Ready, Set, Go! Summer Camps at San Diego Junior Theatre Coming Soon!

June 14 – August 27, 2021

Junior Theatre is READY for summer camp! There are no guarantees, but there’s a good chance we will get the green light to do in-person camps in Balboa Park later this summer. If so, we are SET! We have strategically outlined a plan that includes both virtual and in-person activities. We are taking it one day at a time and following guidance from local health officials. Your family’s safety remains our first priority, but our fingers are crossed that a GO for in-person programming is coming soon! Virtual summer enrollment is currently open via Junior Theatre’s brand new enrollment system, CourseStorm!

*All camps are SUBJECT TO CHANGE based on pending safety regulations.
