Matthews Playhouse of the Performing Arts invites children ages 4 and up to embark on an incredible journey of discovery, creativity and fun this summer. The theatre’s annual Summer Camp, which has served tens of thousands of children in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg and Union County regions since its inception in 1995, offers an exciting array of activities designed to engage and inspire campers ages 4 and up. With themed camps for ages 4–18 years old, children participate in full or half-day camps during the months of June, July, and August and each session culminates with a special on-stage demonstration for friends and family. Matthews Playhouse welcomes children of all backgrounds and skill levels in the performing arts. The summer camp staff is made up of professional actors, directors, musicians, choreographers, theatre educators and former School of Theatre students who are back to pass along what they have learned to the next generation. Each instructor and camp counselor is trained to ensure that each child enjoys a summer camp experience that is safe, enriching, and fun. The cost of attending Matthews Playhouse Summer Camp ranges from $185 to $350 per session, and varies depending on the length of the session, and the type of session (half-day or full-day). Due to popular demand, camp administrators encourage the public to register early - many of the sessions will likely fill up before spring. Parents or guardians interested in registering their children should go to to learn more about the program and sign up.
