“This was my boys’ first experience with an “acting” camp. They loved it, couldn’t wait to go each day, and were begging to go back for another week. Great for self confidence and so much fun. ” ~ Sheri, Parent

“My son has loved every one of the Three Cat Camps he’s attended. Not only does he have a blast, his comfort and skills in theater grow each time. The staff is warm, professional and amazing with kids. We love Three Cat!” ~ Rob’s Mom

“Thanks, Three Cat Education, for a great camp experience. My sons (who have vastly different interests) both enjoyed every minute of camp. They had a ton of fun with the theater/improv games and still play them at home. Your camp leaders are not only top notch professionals but also connected with the kids to make them feel special. Already looking forward to next summer! ” ~ Carrie B.

“Our son loved the camp. He learned several interesting games in camp and wanted to play them at home all the time. We still play some of them, a month after the camp ended.” ~ Parent
