July Broadway Boot Camp 2020

The Wonderful World of Riverside (Ages 7-13)

A new Disney themed virtual camp!

RTW Virtual Summer Camp

 

Overview:

  • We are so excited to be able to offer a virtual camp experience! Our July camp will still run for three weeks, but will be offered as three separate virtual mini camps. Each week will center around a different Disney theme! With this set up, your student has the option for signing up for one, two or three weeks of camp. 

 

Zoom:

  • We will utilize the Zoom feature of  “break out groups”. The host of the zoom meeting will separate the meeting into “break out groups”, which means that the instructors will all be at the theater, but in different rooms and conducting classes/workshops on a rotating basis with groups of roughly 5. 

  • The smaller groups will allow more one on one attention.

  • “Break out groups” will be organized by age.

  •  9:00 - 9:15am - Check in/Warm up/Game

  • On the Friday before camp, we will assign time slots for parents/families to come in and pick up supplies.

    • If you aren’t comfortable coming in person, we will be happy to ship the materials.
