OSKALOOSA, IA — Summer Theatre Camp is in full swing at the George Daily Auditorium! Campers have already learned about movement at a cartoon camp, hunted ghosts, improvised, and attended the North American School of Magical Arts during a Harry Potter-inspired week.

Musical Theatre, a camper favorite, is July 16 – 20th for kindergarten through high school. Students will sing, act, and dance in pursuit of becoming a triple threat.

Summer camp will end with the Two-Week Production, a longer camp that focuses on putting together a full production with all the trappings. This year, the Skunk River Adventure Caravan will prepare classic fairy tales as melodramatic plays that encourage the audience to cheer at heroes and hiss at villains. Melodramas are silly, loud, and often include a messy pie in the face!

“Putting on a theatrical production requires collaboration, critical thinking, listening, and creativity,” said Allison McGuire, one of the teachers of the summer camp. “Students test their limits in each of these areas every week. We value a camper-driven experience that is shaped by the unique group of kids who come through each week.”

Camp runs from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m., with programming available for kindergarten through high school. At the end of each session, campers will showcase what they learned and created throughout the week for family and friends. Free, healthy lunches will be provided for all campers through the Oskaloosa Summer Lunch Program.

Discounts are available for returning campers and families with multiple campers. Financial aid is also available and should be discussed on a case-by-case basis with the Education Director. Brochures and registrations are available at the George Daily Auditorium or online at For questions, contact Andy McGuire at (641) 672-3795 or
