Overnight Camps


A Summer Theatre School for Kids

Artstrek is a summer theatre school for teens that provides professional learning with theatre artists and educators in a collaborative environment. Artstrek is more than 60 years old and has 10,000+ alumni working across Alberta, Canada and the world. Artstrek students explore the creative process through five daily classes that include the study of acting, movement, voice, devising, design, directing and dramaturgy. All of these classes take inspiration from a single play of study. Students become a part of the Artstrek community and create friendships that will last a lifetime.

Each week-long “Exploration” takes place within the performing arts facilities at RDP. Students stay in dormitories on campus and eat meals together in the RDP cafeteria. Classes run daily from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm. Artstrek Supervisors lead fun activities each evening.

Theatre Alberta recruits leading theatre educators and professional artists from across Alberta to teach at Artstrek. Our instructors bring extensive practical and academic knowledge to the program and connect participants directly to the theatre scene in Alberta. 

“I love Artstrek because it has helped me find my true self, given me so many confidence boosts and taught me about everything in theatre, helping to find what I love most.” - Artstrek student
