VIRTUAL SUMMER CAMPS AT DMPA

We’re virtual!

With the health and safety of our camp students and their families as our top priority, we are taking summer classes and camps virtual in order to provide your student a summer filled with creativity, movement, skill-building, confidence, and new friends. 

Our slate of programming contains “parallel” experiences to the topics of our original summer offerings, alongside some exciting new additions – including new opportunities with guest Broadway talent and creative classes for siblings younger than our camp programming has traditionally served.

You Make The Difference

It's 21st century skills that they need to have the rest of their lives. It's not just something that when they leave fourth grade, they are done with it.
