The main goal of the Riverside Foundation for the Performing Arts Summer Camp is to provide musical theatre training to low income and at-risk children (ages 7-18). The training they receive is a strong vehicle which enables the participants to increase their individual self-esteem, to focus on their abilities, and to develop an interest in the cultural arts. The camp provides a light breakfast and a nutritious hot lunch daily for all participants. There is no cost to attend the camp; however, proof of financial need is required.
The children participate in music, choreography, and acting training sessions. During the two week camp, participants also rehearse for the end of camp Showcase, which is a live public performance held on the last day. This year's Camp Showcase will be held on Friday, June 29 at 3:00 pm. It is free and open to the public!
