Testimonials:

“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

“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. After the final performance, he ran to me and asked whether we could sign him up for the next Three Cat camp. He was very disappointed when he heard that he would have to wait until the next year. 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.” ~ Daniel’s Mom

“People who would like this camp are people who like comedy, fun teachers, and awesome theatre games”  ~Ada Grey.

“This was Emma’s second Three Cat Camp. We travel pretty far to get there, but it’s so much better than similar camps we have found.”  ~ Emma’s mom

“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

“This was my daughter’s favorite mini-camp this summer. She loved the staff and the other kids. We can’t wait to sign up for more classes and camps! ” ~Amy, Parent
