Ramah Drama Academy

About Ramah Drama Academy

Whether you are new to the stage or have been basking in the spotlight for years Ramah Drama Academy is the place for you!  For Summer 2017, Camp Ramah in the Poconos is piloting Ramah Drama Academy, open to campers in current 3rd-6th, and 8th-10th grades. This week long drama intensive specialty track during our first session will give campers the opportunity to learn acting techniques and create original performances.  They will focus on improvisation skills, vocal technique, and explore their comedic and dramatic sides.  Ramah Drama Academy will culminate with final performances by our participants.

Campers that choose the Ramah Drama Academy track this summer (July 9th-15th), will spend two hours a day with their peers in a drama intensive track, while still enjoying all of the innovative programming camp has to offer.

For our pilot summer, there is no additional cost to participate in Ramah Drama Academy. Please contact Laura Finkelstein, Program Director, at lauraf@ramahpoconos.org for more information.
