I am interested in joining an artistic team!  Led by a professional set designer, I will create the production set pieces and props throughout the week. My crew will be fully involved in designing, building, painting, and creating the perfect set for the show!

I will attend interactive specialty classes and workshops led by energizing experts in their field. I will also enjoy the many built-in recreations of Camp Grace and participate in extra camp activities (i.e. hikes, dance parties, games, service projects, and more).

What is Rise Up Stage Camp doing about Covid-19?

We will be following the City of Lakeside and the State of Arizona guidelines. If masks are required, then we will be wearing masks when in close contact with each other. Campers will wash their hands regularly. We will hold the majority of our activities outside. Hand sanitizer will be readily available throughout the campgrounds. We will have precautions necessary to help keep everyone safe and healthy. As will any illness, we can not make any guarantees.

We ask that you leave all valuable items (cell phone, electronic devices, fancy jeweler, clothes and/or shoes, etc......) at home where they can be safe. 

What do I need to pack?

We have done the work for you and made a full packing list. Please read over the Parent/Camper Handbook for full details.

Does my child need dance shoes?

Yes. Once the cast has been decided we will provide a list of shoes and other essential items that each character will need to bring with them to camp.

Do all meals provide gluten or nut-free option?

All medical and dietary needs need to be noted in the registration. We will do all we can to provide all for dietary needs.

I’ve never been to a theatre camp before and I'm new to the performing arts. Is that OK?

Yes. Rise Up Stage Camp programs are attended by both returning participants and newcomers.

How much prior training do I need to have?

No prior acting, singing, or dancing experience is required to participate in the Cast program. Due to the ensemble nature of the program, both beginners and experienced campers will be nurtured and challenged.

What are the hours each day?

Rise, shine, and start rehearsal and classes from 8:30 AM to 5:30 PM. Evening programs and more fun will occur after dinner.

Yes, if they are the same gender and in the same age category. In the registration form, please leave the first/last name and age in the comment section. 

Will there be a camp nurse?

Yes. We will have a camp nurse on the premises at all times.

Will there be security at night around camp?

Rest assured. We will have a security team keeping our campers safe!

What are the showers like?

The separate boys and girls restrooms/showers have been recently remodeled. They include individual shower stalls.

Can I bring my phone?

We strongly encourage you to leave your phone with your camp counselor or at home. Your camp counselor will be taking lots of photos of your group, so if you forget your camera, no worries!

Can the participants leave the premises on his or her own, or must a parent or guardian be present?

All participants 17 and under cannot leave the premises without a guardian signing them out. 

All guardians must be at least 18 years of age. Any changes to the authorized sign-in/sign-out form must be made on the online account created when you enroll your child. Changes to this will not be accepted over the phone.
