Summer Arts Institute

Registration for 2018 summer camps is now open!

In 2012, the Gifford Family Theatre’s wildly popular Summer Youth Theatre transformed into the Le Moyne College Summer Arts Institute! This new conservatory program has expanded on GFT’s theatre camp to offer additional opportunities for youth to delve into the areas of film, music (strings), vocal jazz, musical theatre, and (new this summer!) creative writing, all on Le Moyne’s beautiful campus. Youth may choose to attend one or multiple camps!

In recognition that some youth/parents may have schedules that require a longer camp day, the Le Moyne College Summer Arts Institute will be offering an Extended Day Option. This option will be offered for each of the camps (except for the 1/2 day Creative Writing Camp) and will allow youth the opportunity to remain, supervised, on campus until 5:30 p.m. During this time, students will be supervised by Le Moyne College interns who are on staff with the camps, but it will not be a formal extension of the learning period. (The fee for this option is $50 per camp week.)

Check out our 2018 summer programs in TheatreFilm, Vocal JazzMusical Theatre, Creative Writing, and Strings.
