Thank you to everyone who attended our 2014 Summer Camps and Studios! It was an incredible summer and campers used their imagination to create visual art, films, music, dances, and more!

One of our incredibly talented interns created a series of photos that captured our Actors Studio. We can’t wait for next year!

Creative Action Summer Camps are among the most popular in Austin! That’s because our camps are not just fun; they also offer children a chance to grow and learn.

Our camps are tailored to help all children discover their creativity.  We work with each student to grow and expand their skills and confidence, while allowing each child to perform or lead just as much as they are ready.  No matter if your child is a “drama queen” or a “shy kid,” they will fit in at our camps.

Our Summer Camps take place in several locations around Austin. Each week has a different theme sure to keep your child engaged and excited about coming to camp!

NEW! Creative Action is excited to introduce The Studio for ages 10 to 13! Work with professional artists to increase your skills with an advanced level of study in multiple artistic areas.

If you have questions or need more information about camps, please email camp@creativeaction.org or call 512-442-8773.
