Friday Day Camps

Thank you for participating in our Spring Friday Day Camps in 2023! Friday Day Camps will return in Fall 2023.

What are Friday Day Camps?

Friday Day Camps are an opportunity for students who attend school at Creede School or in the greater San Luis Valley to attend a free program regularly, on Fridays during the school year. Each Friday Day Camp will take place at Baxter Rehearsal Hall from 10AM to 4PM with a break for lunch. Each Friday, the students will be exposed to a different area of theatre, including but not limited to Playwriting, Stage Combat, Theatrical Design, Improvisation, and Musical Theatre. All camps are pay what you can.

Friday Day Camps are open to students age 3 and older.


The purpose of Friday Day Camp Programming is to provide students with a safe environment on days when they do not have school. The four-day school schedule often makes finding positive and affordable opportunities for students challenging, and when parents and guardians are working full-time, they are not always able to secure activities for their students to participate in. Friday Day Camps provide a resource for the families in our communities while helping our youth find leadership opportunities, develop specific skills, grow in confidence, and connect with fellow young people.
