NOW HELD AT THE MADY CENTRE!
Theatre teaches children expression and creativity. It builds self-confidence and it’s fun! TIFT continues to provide fun and educational opportunities for young people during their March and Summer Breaks.
TIFT instructors lead students through various dramatic exercises, improvisation, and games and creative craft sessions, all while rehearsing a piece of theatre that is performed for family and friends at the end of the week. Students will learn about improvisation, character building, scene study, storytelling, script writing, set design, costume, make-up, performance, and much more.
There are two age groups: 6-9 and 10-14 year old.
*Pre- and post-care are available for an additional cost. Please contact the TIFT Box Office directly to purchase.
Please complete the forms below before camp for faster registration.

Nicole Dow recently graduated from the University of Guelph and was thrilled to study theatre along with her Psychology courses. Before university, Nicole had two minor roles in her high school’s production of Les Miserables. She enjoyed these roles as they combined her love for singing and acting. Nicole was also involved in many vocals and dance showcases at her high school. Nicole is excited to be a summer camp counsellor at TIFT!
Jordan McIntyre is very excited to be a counsellor at TIFT’s summer camps this year! Ever since being in a school production of Romeo and Juliet in Grade 4, he has had a love for theatre. He has been enthusiastically involved in musical theatre camps and community theatre for years, and is ecstatic to pass on his love of the art to a younger generation! As Glinda from Wicked would say, “I couldn’t be happier” to be counselling at TIFT!
