(Ages 6-8 & 9-12)

Thanks to the expertise of the Faust International Youth Theatre, our excellent Drama Academy camp will build your child’s creativity, confidence, character development and communication through games, improvisation, storytelling, acting and movement. It enables exposure to different views of the world through characters and bringing literacy to life.

Warm-ups, games, improvisation, learning lines, devising scenes complete with costumes and music and rehearsals culminate in taking to the stage on Friday afternoon, an emotional and memorable experience for both you and your child. 

"My kids love performing so this was the perfect camp for them and they also learned all about how to put a production in place. They had a fantastic time at Camp Asia and it was such fun watching their final showcase!”
