Summer Camp at The Factory St. Pete

Enrollment Now Open!

Be bold. Be curious. Be inspired. Young artists come together this summer to heighten and shape their creative voices with guidance from professional artists and teachers from Keep St Pete Lit and American Stage. Participants will explore various modes of storytelling as writers and/or performers, and craft an original piece to be shared on the final day of the program.

All experience levels are welcome! We believe in fostering an accessible environment that encourages a sense of belonging, curiosity, and collaboration. Our teaching artist staff consists of working professionals who have a passion for education, and are trained in key methodologies, culturally responsive teaching, and inclusion in the classroom.
