ArtBeat is CCC’s creative and performing arts day camp for students currently in grades 3-8 (during the 2023-24 school year). The camp runs Sunday, July 7 through Saturday, July 13, culminating in two performances of Annie Jr., one on Friday night and one on Saturday morning.

Here is the schedule:

  • Sunday, July 7 | 4PM-5:30PM | Opening Session (for kids AND parents)
  • Monday, July 8-Friday, July 12 | 9AM-3PM | Camp Sessions
  • Friday, July 12 | 7PM | First Performance
  • Saturday, July 13 | 11AM | Second Performance

TRACKS

ArtBeat is a unique experience where campers have the opportunity to choose a course track, called beats, for the week. These beats are designed to enhance the talents and abilities of the campers based on their strengths and interests. Here are the beats offered this year:

This beat is designed for 3rd Graders (in school year 2023-24) who are new to ArtBeat! Junior Beat is a great introduction that gives campers the opportunity to experience every beat (Performance, Design, Media, Costume) and see everything that goes into the ArtBeat week. Please note ALL 3rd graders will be a part of Junior Beat.

This beat is geared for campers who enjoy the arts but can do without the “drama.” If your student likes painting, creating, working with tools, or working with their hands, or if they’re crafty and love accompanying you on a trip to Michaels, then this beat is right up their alley.  Design Beat is a behind-the-scenes experience where campers can imagine, build, paint, and create the set for the production from scratch or design and create all of the costumes and props!  Either way, there’s tons of creativity and fun as students work to help get everything ready for opening night!

If your camper enjoys creating things using media and art, this beat is for them! Students will use graphics and mediums like sketching, drawing, and sculpting throughout the week. They’ll create and edit stop-motion animations that enhance the productions on Friday & Saturday. In addition, campers will use photography to capture what happens throughout the week and help design the production’s program covers. Media Beat is an unusual addition to traditional theater productions, allowing students the opportunity to engage in a live performance through the use of media and visual arts.

This beat is designed for kids who LOVE singing, dancing, and performing. If your student is great at memorizing lines, and loves to move, dance, and sing, then Performance Beat is totally designed for them! Once our week comes to a close it will be time for “lights, camera, action!”

Space is Limited

Please note that ArtBeat space is limited, so once we are FULL we will close registration.  In addition, we can only accommodate a set number of campers in each Beat, so once a Beat is at max capacity it will no longer be an option on the registration form. 

Once a Beat is full, you can join the Waitlist for that Beat. If a spot opens, we will notify you as soon as possible. We would encourage you to sign up for your second choice Beat in case a spot does not open up. 

Refunds / Cancellations

Refunds are available in full until registration closes on May 1. Email artbeat@communitycc.net to request a refund.

TICKETS

Your registration includes two family tickets for BOTH the Friday, July 12, and Saturday, July 13 performances (families with multiple campers will still receive two tickets per show). These family tickets will be distributed at the ArtBeat Parent Meeting on Sunday, July 7.

Keep in mind that you will need a ticket for each person planning to attend the show (e.g., siblings, grandparents). General Admission tickets can be pre-purchased ($10 a ticket) for this purpose and will also be distributed at the ArtBeat Parent Meeting.
