For twenty five years, children have had the best summer of their lives at the Amadeus Musical Theater and Art Day Camp in Chappaqua, Westchester County, NY ! At our specialty camp in theater, music and art, every child has a meaningful role in the show. The camp gives children the opportunity to perform musical theater, learn acting and choreography, compose their own songs and create sets.
Campers can also study band or orchestra instruments, piano, guitar and voice, create and paint large sets, learn choreography, play in a rock or chamber ensemble, create studio art and have fun with arts and crafts and outdoor activities.
