It’s only February, but the time is now to start registering your children and teens for summer camp. Because of limited space, the trend toward registering kids early began a few years ago, so camps tend to fill up early these days.

This month, we’re focusing on camps that involve the arts, computers and education. Next month, we’ll focus on activity-based camps.

The Alliance Theatre will hold Summer Drama Camps for all grade levels including camps on stage acting, musical theatre, on-camera acting and stage skills. Visit alliancetheatre.org to sign up now.

  1. Camp is a wonderful opportunity for kids to gain personal skills and grow in a place that is 100 percent kid centered. Often families like leaving the the Atlanta heat and heading north. So do not be limited by location.
