Celebrating its 10th anniversary of providing quality, affordable performing arts summer camp for students in Grades 1 through 12, Steel River’s professionally-trained artists work with the campers to develop skills in voice, acting, comedy improv, and movement in a collaborative, noncompetitive setting.

Prospective campers and their families are invited to tour Steel River and participate in a Q&A session by appointment. Tour and meeting hours are Fridays (3:00 – 6:00 pm), Saturdays (12 noon – 3:00 pm), and Mondays (6:00 – 8:00 pm). Please call Steel River at 610.970.1199 or email to schedule your visit.

For summer, campers can choose 2, 4 or 6 weeks of camp (in any combination) running July 8th through 19th, July 22nd through August 2nd, and August 5th through 16th. Camp fees run approximately $5 per hour. Younger campers in Grades 1 through 4 can choose morning, afternoon, or full-day camp ($209 per 2-week session for ½ day; $429 for full day). Camp for those in Grades 5 through 12 is Monday through Friday, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm ($419 per 2-week session). Current students can refer a friend and receive a $10 gift certificate!

As a nonprofit performing arts center, Steel River Playhouse maintains low tuition rates (averaging $5 per hour), so that camp is accessible to as many students as possible. Financial aid is also available for those who qualify.
