Hi all! It’s Emma again, one of your Camp Broadway bloggers. Today, I’m bringing you something that you might’ve not seen before- my experience at Camp Broadway. In 2016, I went to Camp Broadway ON TOUR in Tempe, Arizona, at ASU Gammage and I had the best week of my summer, by far! I’m going to be sharing with you my Top 5 Reasons to attend Camp Broadway this summer, because let’s be clear, if you go to CB, you won’t regret it!
1. Perform in a spectacular showcase!
One of my favorite parts of camp was getting to perform at the end of the week for the Family Finale. Not only did my group get to perform selections from one of my favorite musicals, Legally Blonde, but we got to perform at the Galvin Playhouse, a college theatre. I’ve heard that if you attend CB in New York City, you get to perform in an off-Broadway theatre- what’s cooler than that?
2. See a professional show!
During your time at Camp Broadway, you’ll get to see your talent in the real world onstage! You’ll get the amazing opportunity to go see a show with professional actors, and trust me, there’s nothing quite like watching your dream play out onstage.
3. Experience exclusive opportunities you won’t find anywhere else!
When I attended Camp Broadway, I had the amazing opportunity to eat lunch with the touring cast of Newsies and ask them some questions. In fact, I still use my backpack that is signed by the Newsies themselves! At one year of Camp Broadway, campers got to meet several child actors that are on the Great White Way nightly. Camp Broadway truly gives you experiences that you won’t be able to get anywhere else.
4. Learn from some of the best around!
Not only does Camp Broadway do an amazing job planning unique and exclusive events throughout the week, but the fun doesn’t stop even for a minute. You’re always getting to learn from some of the best professionals in the industry; from vocal coaches to choreographers, you can be sure that you’re in good hands at Camp Broadway.
5. Meet lifelong friends!
Believe it or not, I am still in touch with many of my friends from Camp Broadway! Even though we only got to know each other for a week, Camp Broadway helped us break-the-ice right away. We all got to bond, sing, dance, and play together all week, and the girls that were in my group (Let’s go, Nederlanders!) have become some of my best friends.
If you’re even thinking about going to Camp Broadway this summer, be sure to show this post to your parents to get them thinking about camp! We’d love to have you there with us. Are you going to camp this summer? Comment below, I love hearing when someone is excited to go to Camp Broadway for the first time or even when they’re coming back for a fifth year! Until you go, I promise you’ve never experienced anything like it. Give it a try this summer, and you’ll have the best week of your summer! Until next time Camp Broadway!
