Open to ages 7-17, the the Rep’s PAPA Day Camp is designed to introduce, identify and strengthen each participant’s performance skills, self-confidence, creativity, and ability to work with others. Using song, dance, improvisation, theater games and scene study, performers take part in hands-on training in live theater production. Each 2-week session culminates in a fully-staged theatrical performance open to the public. Campers walk to Prescott Park every day to enjoy lunch (weather permitting) as well as play games outside in the sun!

Meet the 2018 Day Camp Counselors!


“After my son’s first summer camp session at the Seacoast Repertory Theater, he immediately fell in love with acting, music and the arts in general. He became consumed with learning to play an instrument, singing, and writing plays on his own at home. I credit this to the wonderful people that work with the kids. They are encouraging and wonderful at helping the kids find their inner talent. Their love of theater is infectious and the kids are immediately drawn into their passion.”
-Leigh Cavanaugh


“My son has been involved with the Seacoast Rep’s PAPA Day Camp for over four years now. He has thoroughly enjoyed the experience and looks forward to participating each year.  It has been a great program for helping him assert himself and meet new friends. He loves being part of the group and thinks very highly of all the counselors and instructors.”
-Maureen Perroni
