Confidence. Creativity. Connections.

These are just a few of the positives that families report seeing in their children after attending GREAT summer camps. Our camps are designed to bring youth together (in a covid safe way) to explore the artistic process of creating theatre in a space where they can express themselves, connect with others, and be who they are. Consider this your invitation to transform your child’s life.

Planning is underway for a safe, fun, and creative summer!

Pick-Your-Price!

Our full registration fee represents the amount that it costs GREAT to bring theatre camps to our community. To make sure that every student has access to the transformative power of theatre camp, we offer a pick-your-price scholarship program that is available to each and every family. Scholarships are confidential and available for every camp, in every location, every week in limited quantities. 

To register for camp using a pick-your-price scholarship, complete the request form. You’ll be asked to indicate your top three camp choices (specific camp, week, and location) as well as the amount you plan to pay towards the registration fee. Recipients make some payment towards the class, but the amount is up to the individual family. We will process your request and you’ll receive a confirmation of your registration along with a link to make your payment online. Payments must be received at least two weeks prior to when the camp begins. Register now. Pay later!

PICK-YOUR-PRICe REQUEST FORM

GREAT Theatre is able to provide educational programming and continue supporting families, teaching artists, and our partner locations through class registration fees and the generosity of donors.

Frequently Asked Questions

Camps are designed for specific grade and developmental levels, and we encourage you to register your student accordingly. Registration is determined by the grade your student will be entering in the fall of 2021. Please reach out if you have questions about which camp is best for your student. 

For the safety of all campers – parents, caregivers, family members (including siblings), and friends are not able to observe/sit-in on camp. Our camps and intensives are designed for student participation, and we find that students focus better and participate more fully when family members are not in the room. Family members and friends are welcomed and encouraged to attend the sharing/performance/showcase on the final day of camp.

 

GREAT Theatre summer camps are process-focused camps as growth happens most in the rehearsal room. With this in mind, most camps culminate with a sharing, showcase, or performance for families and friends. Please see camp-specific details on our Registration and Schedule pages to see if and what kind of performance your camp has. 

GREAT performs at a variety of locations from blackbox theatres to school performing arts centers to churches, all of which have stages of varying types. While some camps rehearse in classrooms, all camp sharings/showcases/performances will take place on a stage. 

Parents may record a video of the performance for personal use, but per production licenses GREAT is not permitted to record or distribute video of performances.

We encourage campers to dress in comfortable clothing that they can move in. Please have your student wear rubber-soled, closed-toed shoes. 

For costumed camps’ performance days, students will need a base layer: shorts/leggings and t-shirt/tank-top to wear underneath their costume. More detailed information will follow. 

For non-costumed camps’ performance days, we encourage students to wear their GREAT Theatre Summer Camp t-shirt, unless otherwise specified. 

Students must wear masks that cover both nose and mouth. 

 

Because GREAT camps are focused on the process of learning and building theatre skills, not all camps are costumed. This may mean your student will be creating a costume craft, using pieces from a costume trunk, wearing a full costume, or showcasing their GREAT Theatre Summer Camp shirt. Please see camp-specific details on our Registration and Schedule pages.

Because GREAT serves over a thousand students at 15 locations each summer, not all of our camps have microphones. In 2021 our Musical-in-A-Week and Play-In-A-Week camps will utilize microphones.

If a camp is full, you may sign up for the wait list. If a spot becomes available, you will be alerted via email. You claim your spot within 24 hours. If we do not receive payment within 24 hours, your Wait List reservation will be canceled and the spot will be offered to the next student in line.

Yes, to make sure that every student has access to the transformative power of theatre camp we offer a pick-your-price scholarship program available to each and every family. Scholarships are confidential and available for every camp, in every location, every week. Visit the scholarship tab for more information.

Yes, students and staff are required to wear masks with the exception of eating, drinking, and designated “mask break” times. Face shields can be worn in addition to a mask, but cannot replace a mask. Disposable masks will be provided to any student for any reason. We require masks that follow CDC guidelines. The CDC’s guide to mask-wearing can be found here

May 11th update: We are committed to the safety of our campers, teaching artists, and families. GREAT will continue to follow current MDH and CDC guidelines for Youth Enrichment. Since the Governor’s update last week, we have not yet received updates on what this means specifically for the guidelines for youth enrichment activities. As the situation continues to evolve and we get new information from MDH we will update camp families accordingly. Safety remains a top priority in our planning.

This depends on the location. We are working with our partners to identify a designated outdoor space at each location, with a few exceptions: camps at GREAT Studios/Paramount Center for the Arts will be indoors only; camps at the Sartell Community Center will take place primarily outdoors with an indoor space to be used as a back-up when weather conditions are not favorable (excessive heat, wind, rain, etc.). Teaching Artists are encouraged to conduct class outdoors as much as possible. Snack and lunch will be conducted outdoors, weather permitting. 

GREAT will follow the MDH and CDC Decision Tree process to assess if employees, campers or volunteers should stay home and when they should return. Non vaccinated staff and volunteers must follow the CDC guidelines on quarantining for 7-14 days with a positive test result and we will alert anyone who has been within 6′ for more than 15 minutes within 24 hours with the individual who tested positive.

Employees, campers and volunteers must stay home from work, camp or their volunteer shift if they have symptoms of acute respiratory illness consistent with COVID-19, including fever, cough, chills, sudden loss of taste or smell, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or shortness of breath. Contact GREAT Theatre if your camper will not be attending camp. Please be tested for COVID-19 and let GREAT know if you test positive (this will be kept confidential.)

GREAT will continue to follow current MDH and CDC guidelines for Youth Enrichment and will abide by all COVID safety precautions. GREAT is working to ensure all adult staff are vaccinated to create the safest possible camps for our students.

 

When available, employees, campers and volunteers will wash their hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. When this is not an option, use sanitizer containing at least 60% ethanol or 70% isopropanol. Employees, campers and volunteers should also wash their hands at the beginning and end of each shift and break, after using the restroom, sneezing, touching their face, blowing their nose, cleaning, eating, or drinking. Hand sanitizing will be conducted at drop-off, pick-up, and after each class activity. Additional hand washing & sanitizing will be implemented as needed. GREAT will provide hand sanitizer in the classroom and at entrances/exits. Students are encouraged to bring their own hand sanitizer.

Classrooms, restrooms, and hallways will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized daily by staff and custodial professionals provided by the venue of the camp. High-touch surfaces with the classroom or theater will be cleaned and sanitized throughout the day by our teaching artists. If class supplies must be shared, they will be cleaned and sanitized before and after use and students will wash their hands.

No, all of GREAT 2021 summer theatre camps are in-person. The Friday performance of Disney’s Frozen KIDS Musical in a Week will be available to watch via livestream. 

  • Story Play and Page to Stage camps will have a free in-person, ticketed sharing time on Friday during the last half hour of camp.  
  • Mini Players Originals and Intensive (Hamilton) will have a free in-person, ticketed sharing time on Friday during the last half hour of camp. 
  • Musicals and Play-in-a-Week will have a free in-person, ticketed performance the last hour of camp on Friday. 
  • The number of in-person tickets each camper receives will vary depending on facility capacity and MDH guidelines. 
  • Disney’s Frozen KIDS Musical-in-a-Week is the only camp that will also be available to watch via livestream on Friday. 
  • There is a 20% administrative fee for cancellations; must give 2 weeks advance notice.
  • There are no refunds for cancellations made within 2 weeks of the start of camp.
  • Students may transfer camp sessions (based on availability) 2+ weeks before a class begins. Class transfers requested less than two weeks before a class begins may not be accommodated. If camp registration fees are not equal, any cost difference must be paid at the time of transfer.
  • Refunds will be considered for students with COVID-19 symptoms.

If GREAT cancels a camp for ANY reason prior to the camp starting, you may join a different class or receive a full refund.

We will follow all current CDC and MDH guidelines regarding decisions for how camp proceeds if there are positive tests or potential exposures. In the event of a cancellation or exposure you will be alerted via text and email. In the event of a positive COVID-19 case within a camp that requires it to be cancelled, a prorated refund will be issued.

We know there is much concern surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, and we want to do whatever is necessary to support you in a safe and productive camp environment. We are committed to the safety of our campers, teaching artists, and families. GREAT will continue to follow current MDH and CDC guidelines for Youth Enrichment. As the situation continues to evolve and we get new information from MDH we will update camp families accordingly. Safety remains a top priority in our planning.

Updated May 28th, 2021

GENERAL COVID-19 GUIDELINES

All employees, volunteers and campers are to put the following guidelines into practice:

  • HAND WASHING. When available, employees, campers and volunteers will wash their hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. When this is not an option, use sanitizer containing at least 60% ethanol or 70% isopropanol. Employees, campers and volunteers should also wash their hands at the beginning and end of each shift and break, after using the restroom, sneezing, touching their face, blowing their nose, cleaning, eating, or drinking.
  • PHYSICAL DISTANCING. Whenever possible, employees, campers and volunteers should leave at least 3 or 6 feet between them and the person closest to them. Our instructors will help campers maintain physical distance throughout camp with the use of tape, carpet dots, or other markers.
  • FACE COVERINGS. Please note: As strongly encouraged by the CDC and MDH, GREAT will require all students attending a 2021 GREAT Summer Theatre Camp to wear face masks while indoors (covering nose and mouth). Masks may be removed for the Friday sharing and/or performance and anytime students are outdoors physically distanced. 
  • SYMPTOMS: Employees, campers and volunteers must stay home from work, camp or their volunteer shift if they have symptoms of acute respiratory illness consistent with COVID-19, including fever, cough, chills, sudden loss of taste or smell, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or shortness of breath. Contact GREAT Theatre if your camper will not be attending camp. Please be tested for COVID-19 and let GREAT know if you test positive (this will be kept confidential.)
  • VACCINATION: GREAT strongly encourages all staff and volunteers be fully vaccinated (two weeks after completion of a two-dose or a one-dose series) to reduce the risk of getting seriously ill from COVID-19 and help reduce risk of spreading COVID-19 to others
  • HEALTH SCREENING: GREAT will follow the MDH and CDC Decision Tree process to assess if employees, campers or volunteers should stay home and when they should return. Non vaccinated staff and volunteers must follow the CDC guidelines on quarantining for 7-14 days with a positive test result and we will alert anyone who has been within 6′ for more than 15 minutes within 24 hours with the individual who tested positive.
  • SNACK/LUNCH TIME: You may bring a full water bottle with you to class each day, though only camps with specified snack or lunch periods may bring food (unless needed because of a medical condition). Water fountains may not be accessible at each location. If possible, eating periods will happen outdoors or outside of the room being used for camp. Instructors will help supervise distancing between students. If the area is too small for the whole class, campers will eat in groups (the same ones each day).
  • IN-PERSON PERFORMANCES: Safety protocols for audiences will be determined by current MDH and CDC guidelines at the time of the camp. These guidelines will be communicated via email and on our website.

RESPONDING TO CONFIRMED CASES OF COVID-19

In the event that an employee, camper or volunteer is confirmed to be currently infected with COVID-19, the following actions will be taken:

  • Determine what areas of the venue were visited, used, or impacted by the infected employee, camper or volunteer. Identify if employees or volunteers need to be removed from the area and if the area requires sanitization.
  • Notify the ‘impacted employees, camper family or volunteers’ that may have had contact with an infected person (without identifying such person for privacy reasons) and encourage them to monitor their health for any symptoms. If symptoms appear, they should contact a medical professional and/or test for COVID-19. We will follow all current CDC and MDH guidelines regarding positive tests or potential exposures regarding decisions for how that camp proceeds. In the event of a cancellation or exposure you will be alerted via text and email.
  • Any employee, camper or volunteer who tests positive for COVID-19 should remain in home isolation until the employee or volunteer provides reliable proof that a physician has determined that they should be released from quarantine or need not be quarantined and may return to work.
  • GREAT will notify MDH about all positive case, managing case follow-up, and notifying exposed persons, consistent with the CDC guidelines.

SANITIZATION

  • SANITIZING HIGH-TOUCH AREAS. High-touch areas around the theatre and rehearsal spaces will be cleaned and/or sanitized daily according to our sanitization checklist. Classrooms, restrooms, and hallways will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized daily by staff and custodial professionals provided by the venue of the camp. High-touch surfaces with the classroom or theater will be cleaned and sanitized throughout the day by our teaching artists. If class supplies must be shared, they will be cleaned and sanitized before and after use and students will wash their hands.

OPEN DOOR POLICY

Should any employee, camper or volunteer have any concerns or suggestions regarding conditions related to COVID-19, or if they require any reasonable accommodation or leave related to COVID-19, including leave for qualifying to COVID-19 related reasons under the Family First Coronavirus Response Act, they are encouraged to reach out to Dennis Whipple at Dennis@GreatTheatre.org or 320.258.2787, their direct supervisor, the stage manager or any GREAT employee.

No Tree Nuts / No Peanuts
To ensure the safety of all of our campers, we have a strict no-nut policy for both peanuts and tree-nuts (including hazelnut products such as Nutella).

Electronic Device Policy
To encourage our value of ensemble and relationship building, cellphones and other electronic devices are not to be used during camp (including breaks).

Parents are welcome to call GREAT Theatre at 320.258.2787 if they need to contact their student(s).

In consideration of our staff members and to ensure safety of all campers, GREAT asks that campers be dropped-off for class no earlier than 10 minutes before camp start time. Campers must be picked-up for class no later than 5 minutes after camp end time. GREAT reserves the right to charge families a fee of $1 per minute for late pick-ups.

Observation
For the safety of all campers – parents, caregivers, family members (including siblings), and friends are not able to observe/sit-in on camp. Our camps and intensives are designed for student participation, and we find that students focus better and participate more fully when family members are not in the room. Family members and friends are welcomed and encouraged to attend the sharing/performance/showcase on the final day of camp!
