2020 Summer Camps

Camp Paramount and The Paramount Story Wranglers
 

Thank you to our amazing 2020 campers and their families.
We’ll see you next year!

2020 Camps are going digital

The indefinite closure of Austin ISD campuses due to Covid-19 precautions has led us to reevaluate our approach to summer camp. In support of citywide efforts to reduce the spread of Covid-19, and to ensure the safety of campers, we are transitioning our 2020 Paramount Summer Camps to a digital format.

We will continue to offer the unique elements that make our award-winning camps so special:

  Two-week performing arts camps with full days 9am–4pm, Mondays–Fridays.

  Our professional team of teaching artists that you know and love will engage your kids in guided classes and activities.

  Campers will participate in acting, singing, and dancing, as well as theatre tech and design classes.

  A final professionally-edited video performance celebrating the hard work of our campers that can be shared with friends and family.

Technical Details

Online Instruction Tool: Camp Story Wranglers will be hosted using Zoom.*

Daily Schedule: We will have a balance of direct online instruction and planned materials your camper will work on offscreen each day. Campers will also have time to get to know their fellow campers as we build our virtual camp community! Additional details are being finalized and will be shared soon.

Teacher Access: After each scheduled lesson campers will have the ability to ask questions and review content with teaching artists in a small group setting.

*Participants will need access to an electronic device with a Zoom-compatible internet browser (a computer or tablet with a camera), a secondary device that can play MP3s (a phone, tablet, iPod, etc.), headphones, and a reliable internet connection. We will hold an orientation session before camp to help you get set up.
