Mainstage Center for the Art’s  Summer Stage is the oldest, most successful, and most affordable youth theater program in Southern New Jersey. We offer a series of creative theater programs specifically designed to allow children of every age to expand their skills. For 35 summers, children have enjoyed Summer Stage, where participants use their imaginations to share the MAGIC of live performances through outstanding musical productions and creative set construction. Since its first summer, in 1989,  our summer performing arts camp has grown from 65 campers to nearly 500.  Summer Stage has become one of the longest-running performing arts camps in South Jersey.

This summer all programs and shows will be held at Camden County College (200 College Drive, Blackwood, NJ).
