1st – 2nd Grade Summer Camps

1st - 2nd Grade Summer Programs

TaleSpinners (Grades 1-2)

Create your own story and bring it to life on stage in Studio East camps for 1st and 2nd graders! TaleSpinners campers work together to write an original play, create their characters, choose costumes, make props and set pieces, and perform their dazzling creation on the final day. Each week focuses on a different theme and different activities to excite the young camper’s spirit and imagination.

Tuition Assistance & Scholarships are available for families in need. Apply for a scholarship here.

Before registering, please be sure to check our most up-to-date Covid-19 guidelines & policies for Summer Camps HERE.

Grade refers to a student’s placement in Fall 2022.

Extended Care until 5:30pm is available for ALL TaleSpinners camps for an additional $150 per week. To register for Extended Care please answer YES to “Would you like to add Extended Care?” during the registration process.

Extended care has flexible pick-up (so you can pick-up anytime between camp end and 5:30pm). Extended care is not an extension of camp themed activities, but we have theater games, board games, books, crafts, and a playground available for students to have fun after camp hours.
