Give your kids a meaningful and active arts experience during FCPS Spring Break, April 15-19. Our Spring Break Acting Camp, “Spring Break On Stage”, is the perfect way to try out theater skills for the first time or to return to favorite topics. With daily and full-week enrollment options, campers may choose days with themes that interest them the most or come every day for maximum theatrical adventure!
Students will be separated into age-appropriate groups (ages 5-9 and 10-14) and will spend the day (9am-3pm) doing theater-based games, activities, and learning exercises that facilitate team-building and confidence-building experiences.

“This year, Monday’s focus is on ‘Creating a Character’, a perfect introduction to acting for new and returning students,” explained staff member Zach Wilcox. “The teachers will help each student work on their own character ideas, which they can present at the end of the day. They can even re-use those characters on Wednesday if they join us for ‘Playwriting’!”
Spring Break Acting Camp, which takes place at the Mason Community Arts Academy Building at 4260 Chain Bridge Road in Fairfax City, is a fantastic way to keep students’ minds engaged during the break from school.
