Our Groundbreaking Online Summer Camp Via Zoom is Back for 2022 and Beyond!  PAW’s Online Campers get to build their own daily activities from choices of:
Theatrical Makeup
Magic
Acting
Singing & Voice Training
Dance
Guitar
Spoken Word Poetry
Debate
Every week is a new experience because our acting, singing, and dance teachers draw inspiration from our weekly themes which include: WEST SIDE STORY, WIZARD OF OZ, BEAUTY & THE BEAST, SOUND OF MUSIC, LION KING, HAMILTON and RAPUNZEL.

Right now, when it is even more important than ever to ensure kids stay happy, safe, and connected, we’re offering the perfect blend of safe social interaction and summer camp activities right from the comfort of home.  Kids can participate in camp individually, with siblings, or as a Mini Camp Pod with trusted friends.  Additionally, your child can attend camp with one of the GRANTS PAW is providing for families impacted by the pandemic.  Come try a Full Day, Half Day, or Partial Camp Day and allow your child to explore, collaborate, and have fun uncovering a new passion!

Registration for our online summer camp is already open. Click here to learn more about our Online Camp!

PAW’S FILMMAKING CAMP ~ SCRIPT TO SCREEN

“If you can dream it, you can do it.”
-Walt Disney

Do you have a story that needs to be told? Do you see stories as moving pictures?
If so, then PAW’s Script to Screen Filmmaking Summer Camp, for kids ages 8 – 16, is the place for you! At Script to Screen Camp, young playwrights and filmmakers will work as a team to write, direct, film, act in and edit their own original music video, TV pilot, movie trailer or short movie!
Each session of Script to Screen Camp is two weeks in length with 5 sessions available. In each session, our young storytellers will learn how to pitch their ideas, shape their stories through writing exercises, develop their ideas into visual images, create a shooting script and storyboards, then act in, film and edit their movie. This will be a collaborative effort, with every camp member contributing their ideas to help bring the vision to life. Each of our budding auteurs will get their own a copy of their short film which will have its premiere screening during the first act presentation of PAW’s Musical Theater Camp!    

It is said that movies are the memories of our lifetime – a blend of artistry, academics, imagination and craft. Now is your chance to make lifelong memories at PAW’s Script to Screen Filmmaking Camp!
