SUMMER CAMP FAQ
How do I register my child for camp?
The fastest and easiest way to register is through our secure website HERE. Families who wish to pay with a check may still register online and mail a check, but your spot will not be held until payment is received. Make checks payable to "LifeLight Youth Theatre". Summer registration fees: $25 per family for new LYT families, currently enrolled families who actively attend weekly classes do not pay summer registration fees. Fees are a per summer and not per camp, and each camper receives the LYT Summer 2018 t-shirt.
Will I receive confirmation of my child's spot in camp?
Yes. Families who register online will receive an immediate email confirmation. We will also send all families a personalized confirmation, with a receipt, once we have processed your registration and payment. Add email@example.com to your email address book to ensure you receive your confirmation email.
Where are your camps located?
LYT Summer camps are held at Grace Community Chapel, 7661 Mexico Rd, St Peters, MO 63376.
Does my child need to have prior drama experience?
No. LifeLight Youth Theatre drama camps are a great fit for children with and without prior experience. We welcome kids with all levels of training and performance experience.
Is there a performance at the end of the camp session?
Yes. All of our week- long campers (1/2 day & full day) get to share what they have learned with family and friends in a performance on the Friday of each camp week. Most showcases are ticketed events and ticket prices are $10 or less. See the camp schedule for the time of your child's performance (s).
Do both boys and girls attend your camps?
Yes. We have a good mix of boys and girls most camp weeks. Our camp themes this summer feature a number of roles chosen just for boys.
Do you offer sibling discounts?
Yes. The first child is full-price and additional siblings in the same camp are 15% off. We cannot combine sibling discounts with other discounts.
What should my child wear to camp?
Wear comfortable clothes you can move in. We will be dancing, running around, and sitting on the floor each day. Wear leggings/shorts under dresses or skirts. All shoes must attach around the foot -- no flip-flops allowed!
What should my child wear for the Performances?
We will email you a costume list once the show has been cast. Most costume pieces can be found around the house, or hit up your local Goodwill. All students should wear their costumes on Thursday for Dress Rehearsal Day and on Friday for Performance Day.
Should I pack a lunch or snack for my child each day?
Yes. You are responsible for providing all of your child's food each day. We take snack breaks mid-morning and mid-afternoon and a lunch break . We take a lunch 12-1 each day. Half- Day campers should bring a snack and drink. Full Day campers should bring snacks, lunch, and a drink each day. Please include any utensils or napkins your child will need. We do not have access to refrigerators or microwaves at most locations. ALL FOOD MUST BE NUT-FREE.
Do you offer extended day care?
We do not offer extended day care, campers must be picked up on time.
How quickly do camps fill?
Each year our drama camps become more popular and sell-out more quickly. Registration opens in late winter/early spring. We recommend registering your child in early spring to ensure a spot.
How can I tell if a camp is already full?
If a camp is sold-out it will be crossed out on our schedule, with the words SOLD OUT listed by the camp dates.
Is there a waitlist?
Yes, we offer a waitlist for sold-out camps. Occasionally spaces become available, and sometimes we are able to double an offering if enough students are waitlisted. If you would like to be placed on the waitlist, please register for the camp week (marked as WAIT LIST on the registration form). If a spot becomes available you will receive a call or email from our staff. We will not collect payment unless a spot becomes available.
Is there a chance that a camp could be cancelled due to low enrollment?
LifeLight Theatre reserves the right to cancel camps for which fewer than five students are enrolled. In this event, we will notify the families affected by a cancelled camp with a choice of suitable replacement camp weeks or full refunds.
Audition Policy– Unlike other theatre camps, your child does not have to audition in order to get accepted in camp. Upon registration, you reserve a spot and the directors will cast from auditions. In other words, every student gets a role, no matter what!
