CYT Branches put on week-long musical theater Day Camps and Summer Stock Shows for students ages 5-18. Camps are designed to be a fun and energetic immersion into the world of musical theater. Camps are jam-packed with games, activities, and interactive workshops that build performance skills, self-confidence, and teamwork. Typical camps include team competitions; rotations through drama, dance, music, and behind the scenes workshops; and a concluding showcase for family and friends. Through praise, worship, prayer, and daily devotions, CYT teen camps are particularly focused on spiritual growth and development of skills.
CYT Camps are all about fun, friendships, and theatrics. Camps are a great yearly tradition for your child!  Themes vary from year to year and change depending on the age group.

CYT Houston offers several different camp experiences: 
  • Day Camp - ages 5 - 12 years
  • Summer Stock - ages 8 - 18 years
  • Summer Stock Backstage Ninjas - ages 13-18
  • Overnight Teen Retreat - ages 13 (by 8/31) - 19
Students are eligible to participate in day camp and Summer Stock as long as they meet the age requirement for that camp by the first day of camp.

Please note: There are no refunds for camps once you have registered. 


Camp staff includes professional local artists, CYT Production Artistic Teams, and theater specialists. These counselors are high energy, experienced, and love working with kids! CYT aims to hire counselors who are great role models for our students. All CYT counselors have been background checked and trained to adhere to our CYT Mission and Values. 

CYT summer camps have been some of my most memorable experiences. From Newsies to The Lion King to Master Camps there is always something new for a great time with friends. They have taught me how to work with people and learn quickly.

CYT Student

Day Camps

CYT Day Camp is a week-long musical theater camp offered during the summer and spring break for students ages 5-12. 

Camps are designed to create a hands-on theater experience and are focused on building performance skills, self-confidence, and teamwork. Camp days are filled with Broadway themed musical theater workshops focusing on voice, dance, drama, and games. Campers enjoy making new friends as they build self-confidence and vital performance skills that are useful in all areas of life. Worship, scripture memorization challenges, team-building time, wacky themed days, and high-energy competitive games will also be incorporated, promising you the best experience!

To close out the week, campers will showcase what they've rehearsed at an exciting Friday afternoon performance for family and friends.

Participants do not need to have any previous experience.


At the end of Day Camp, students perform in a showcase that they have rehearsed for over the course of their fun-filled week. Parents get to come watch their kids perform the material they have learned in just a short week free of charge! Showcase is a celebration of the week’s work and gives kids a glimpse into the energy and excitement of being part of a full CYT production.

Summer Stock

CYT Summer Stock is a two week, Monday through Friday workshop with a full production held on the Saturday after the final camp day. Summer Stock hours are 9 AM to 3 PM. A full show will be performed at a local venue with costumes, sets and props! Parent help is not mandatory but welcome and necessary to put the show together. All students will be in the show.

Students will audition for roles.  They do NOT need to come with anything prepared, but they will be asked to audition on the first Monday.  

Backstage Ninjas

Backstage Ninjas campers enjoy an intensive, immersive, two-week workshop designed to teach and hone the skills necessary to be part of the backstage and technical crew for our Summer Stock productions. This camp runs at the same time as the Summer Stock show they are assisting, but has its own counseling staff. The campers will learn skills in sound, lighting, basic set design, props and costumes. Campers must be 13-18 years old.
The Backstage Ninjas camp counts as two specialty classes for those of you interested in earning the CYT Decathlon Award.

Overnight Teen Retreat

Treat yourself to the biggest teen overnight event of the CYT year! Get away for a few days to refresh, recharge, and RETREAT! Enjoy intensive workshops in dance, voice, and drama. Other highlights include fun recreation, night games, skits,  worship music, deep discussion, lifelong friendships, and more. What could be more fun than spending a week enjoying fellowship with other CYT students?! Take your love of theater to the next level as we learn to grow as individuals, and help change our world one stage at a time! 

For Teen Retreat only, our campers can turn 13 by August 31. Campers are 13-19 years old.
