Summer Camps

Drama Camps

All of the HLS drama camps are devoted to the good, the beautiful, and the true. You can rest assured that the information shared and the skills modeled will exemplify the HLS goal to offer educational opportunities that are guided by the Gospel. The goal will be that each student may grow in knowledge, wisdom, and the love of Our Lord, and more ably use their gifts in the service of others, and for the glory of Christ and his Church.

The HLS drama program started with 10 students performing Little Women. In five years, the program has grown to more than 80 students and 6 staff members. The list of musicals they have undertaken include My Fair Lady, Music Man, Pirates of Penzance and The Sound of Music. The plays they have done include Little Women, Sherlock, Curious Savage, Anne of Green Gables and It’s a Wonderful Life. The HLS Drama program is very highly regarded and their shows are well attended by the surrounding community. 

Drama provides the opportunity to teach character, increase confidence, enhance reading comprehension skills,  develop memory tools, improve communication skills, and more.
