EPAC's Summer Camp

Ephrata Performing Arts Center | Ephrata, false 17522

This year EPAC returns with its newly designed format in which the students are the driving force behind the development of all programming.

Each camper will have the unique opportunity to participate in both the construction and design of his or her own collaborative production. This will involve developing proper costumes, props, lighting design, script development, and plot analysis–culminating in a final performance. With an emphasis on remaining artistically organic and working through a process that emphasizes leadership and individuality, campers will gain a much deeper appreciation of the behind-the-scenes work that goes into producing a theatrical performance.
