Does anyone know of any summer musical theatre camps that are relatively cheap? Most of the ones I have looked at are well out o my family's price range, but I would love to go to a good theater camp for the summer. Thanks!

Shenandoah University in Winchester, VA has a summer program. I took it 25 years ago, but they do still offer it. I'm not sure how much it costs.

If you tell us what continent you're on that might help keep the costs down a bit for you.

I live in the United States. I would also like one that accepts 'beginners'. Where I live there are VERY few theater options. My high school's theater program is pretty bad because most of the people in there were stuck in there because they did not choose an elective. However, I do take dance lessons, and I was in music classes all through elementary and most of middle school.

Inspiration Point Fine Arts Colony (IPFAC) has two very small camps every summer, one of which is a vocal camp. They put on a Broadway show in the one week they are there (and let me tell you, it is a crazy amount of fun). No idea what part of the US you are in, but this is in Arkansas and costs $350 (or maybe $325? I don't remember, but really cheap compared to other camps).

My brother went to Texas Musical Theater Workshop (TXMTW) this past summer at the University of Texas in Austin. It was three weeks long, and he said it was amazing. Much more professional and Broadway-oriented than IPFAC, where I go every summer, but also way more expensive ($3,000).
