IRENE C. EDMONDS YOUTH THEATRE CAMP

The Irene C. Edmonds Youth Theatre Camp is a five-week performing arts camp that has been a perennial favorite for more than a decade. It is a non-profit program for boys and girls ages 7-16. It seeks to explore and enhance the intellectual, emotional, creative, and artistic abilities and talents of each participant.

The camp is designed to introduce and expose participants to the arts - theatre, music and dance - through daily classes, workshops and cultural/entertainment excursions. The program culminates with a theatrical production on the campus of Florida A&M University.

The youth theatre members continue participating with the Theatre Program throughout the year by attending Essential Theatre productions deemed appropriate for their varying age groups, as well as other suitable cultural and academic activities in the area.

Named in honor of Irene C. Edmonds, this program seeks to establish a disciplined and nurturing environment for today’s youth. Edmonds, a pioneer in African American Children’s Theatre, founded and directed the acclaimed FAMU Creative Children’s Theatre for twelve (12) years (1948-1960). She served the university and the state as a cultural role model from 1947-1968.
