PASS Camp at Lake Local Schools

Last Updated: 4/13/2021 6:27 PM

PASS (Performing Arts Summer Spectacular ) Camp is a unique five-week intensive camp that will culminates in performances of a musical or original musical review. 

PASS Camp provides local kids in grades 7-12 with an affordable, first-rate performing arts camp where they can express themselves, learn about the performing arts, make lasting friendships, and have fun!

For kids who are interested in learning about the technical side of theatre, we will be offering workshops where students will learn to design sound, lighting, scenery, and props.  They will be taught how to use each piece of equipment, and will be given opportunities to operate the equipment during the show.  


Summer 2021 = Stay tuned for information regarding this year's PASS Camp.


PASS Camp is led by Emily Walls and Cory Kosman.

Emily Walls, Camp Director, Acting Director, is a theatrical director, drama club advisor, and color guard instructor at Lake Middle High School.  She holds a Bachelor of the Arts in Theatre Studies with a concentration in Theatre Production from the School of Theatre and Dance at Kent State University.
