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

Check out our 2022 summer programs in TheatreFilmMusical TheatreCreative Writing, and Strings.

Due to the constantly changing nature of the COVID situation, COVID-safety precautions for the summer will be determined as we get closer to camp dates.

Due to Covid restrictions in 2022, we will not be able to offer our usual extended-day program this summer.
