CYT Wichita Camps

During the summer, CYT Wichita puts on week-long musical theater day camps for students ages 5-18. Camps are designed to be a fun and energetic immersion into the world of musical theater. Camps are jam-packed with games, activities, and interactive workshops that build performance skills, self-confidence, and teamwork. Typical camps include team competitions; rotations through drama, dance, and music workshops; and a concluding showcase for family and friends.  Through praise, worship, prayer, and daily devotions, CYT teen camps are particularly focused on spiritual growth.

CYT Summer Camps are all about fun, friendships, and theatrics. Camps are great yearly tradition for your child!

I thoroughly enjoyed this experience in Wichita with my friends. I'm so grateful that I got to meet new friends and very lovely directors. I loved everything about this camp, except that it wasn't any longer.


CYT Student

Something for everyone this summer with CYT Wichita!


CYT Camp for 5-7 year olds

This year, campers ages 5-7 can choose between the Half Day program from 9:00 am - 12:00 pm or the All Day program from 9:00am-3:00pm. 
Half Day Option: Campers will rotate through drama, voice, and dance classes. They will be challenged with group games, and prepare numbers for the final showcase. For younger students who desire the experience, but are not ready for all day, this is a great option for camp! Great teens and instructors will keep them moving all morning!
All Day Option: We realize many families have children who are in both age brackets and two different pick-up times is difficult. Therefore, this summer, CYT families can choose the option which best fits their family and students' needs. The afternoon session for 5-7 year olds will include work on props/sets and more fun time with acting, singing, and dancing. 

CYT Camp for 8-12 year olds

A day camp, 9:00am-3:00pm filled with dance, drama, and voice workshops. Campers will participate in whole group games, with special theme days including water games! These special days make dressing up and coming to camp a blast! Students will be given instruction on dance techniques, vocal training, and acting tips! All these skills come together as the teams work to present their part of a great show! The free Showcase will be presented to families and friends on Friday night at 7:00pm.  You may choose our "Be Brave!" camp, “Dinosaurs Before Dark” (a full 30 minute musical), or “A Little Bit of Showbiz”. All camps are designed to increase the students’ ability in all areas of theater while building meaningful friendships and faith through daily devotions.

CYT Teen Camp for 13-18 year olds

A camp filled with dance, drama, and voice rehearsals.  Campers will participate in whole group games, special theme days and an overnight stay on Tuesday night!  Students will be given professional instruction on dance techniques, vocal training, and acting tips. The Showcase will be presented to families and friends on Friday and Saturday nights at 7:00pm.
