All three of my children have attended the Young Actors' Theatre Camp and their experience can be summed up in the words of my daughter, "Mom, it changed my life!" Yes, this a well-run and thoroughly entertaining way for kids to have fun and learn about the arts and entertainment industry. But more importantly, it's incredibly inclusive of kids of ALL talent levels. The staff and master class teachers understand talent comes in all forms and needs a safe place to blossom. Campers are supported and encouraged by everyone there. They build confidence and embrace diversity. Our family is very grateful to Shawn and John for creating such a beautiful place.
