Youth Camps and Classes

LDTC’s Youth Camps & Classes provide theatre-based education programs to Summit County’s youth. While students gain knowledge and skills in the performance arts through theatre, music, and dance classes, the program’s ultimate focus is to broaden perspectives, build confidence, and bolster community ties through shared experiences, and most importantly, have fun! The classes culminate with performances free to the public.

If you have any questions or would like any more information about our Youth Camps & Classes, please contact our education department at education@thesilco.org or by calling 970.513.1151 Ext. 105
