DAYS and TIMES of YOUTH CAMPS - Ages 7 to 14.  (Information below does not apply to the TEEN ONLY CAMP)
ALL camps are two weeks long, (Monday through Friday), and run from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. (8:00 am. if a parent needs early drop off). If you require the EARLY DROP OFF option, there is an extra fee of $5.00 a day and must be paid WHEN YOU REGISTER your child.  We do not offer drop off any earlier than 8:00 a.m.  Most parents use the EARLY DROP OFF option everyday, however, if you only need to utilize it on, let’s say, Wednesday's and Friday's we will be asking you in an email.  This email will be sent 1 week before the start of every camp.  The staff member who 'opens' the building will only allow children ON HIS or HER EARLY DROP OFF LIST to be dropped off before 8:45 a.m.  

 The structured day, when the kids are working with Randall Hickman or Douglas Davis, is between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. You are more than welcome to drop your child off at 10:00 a.m. and pick them up at 4:00 p.m.  After 4:00 p.m. the kids play games, watch movies and do crafts with our amazing counselors. While the structured time with the Director ends at 4:00 p.m., the camp remains open until 6:00 p.m. There is NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE if you pick up your child by 6:00 p.m.  We provide this extra two hour buffer to you free of charge.  However, there is a $1.00 per minute, per child, charge if you pick your child, (children), up later than 6:10 p.m.. So, if you arrive at 6:20 p.m., there is a $10.00 charge, (per child), that must be paid BEFORE your child, (children), show up for the next day of camp.

VISTA YOUTH CAMPS, (Ages 7 to 14), ENROLLMENT FEE
We pride ourselves on our affordable camps.
  The cost of each camp is  - $275.00 per two week session. That around $2.95 cents AN HOUR!  The day you register you will be charged a $50.00 non-refundable, ’hold my slot’ fee.  This fee was implemented because during the past three years we have had an epidemic of parents registering and then dropping the camp a week prior to the start of the camp - and filling that slot with an alternate is impossible.  Why?  Because parents at this late stage have already found something else for their child to do.  The remaining $225.00 will be charged one week prior to the start of camp. Your child’s enrollment fee covers two snacks a day; one field trip a week; all crafts and supplies, and your child's costume rental and cleaning.  GREAT DEAL!!  NO PARTIAL enrollments will be allowed because the first day of camp we cast the SHOW and the kids perform in that show the second Thursday or Friday of camp.   ALL the VISTA DRAMA CAMPS will present their show on the San Marcos Theater West Stage in the San Marcos community center—3 Civic Center Drive, San Marcos, 92069. 

FACILITY INFORMATION
The Vista camps are held in our  downtown Vista Theater - The BROADWAY.  The Broadway Theater is located directly behind Vista's Avo Playhouse, on the quiet street of East Broadway—340 East Broadway.  We are across the street from the Yellow Deli.


TIMES of CAMP 

The STRUCTURED DAY, (when the kids work with the Director's), is from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m..  However, you may drop your child off as early 9:00 a.m., and pick up must be made by 6:00 p.m. or you will be charged a $1.00 per minute late fee.  If you require drop off earlier than 9:00 a.m., we do have staff that arrives at 8:00 a.m.. The  charge for EARLY DROP-OFF is an additional $5.00 per day.  Every year one of our camps ALWAYS seems to fall on the 4th of July.  We DO NOT hold camps on this day and we do not prorate the day.  All of our camps are a flat fee.  We wanted to give you a heads-up about this when choosing your camp.

Register NOW for our first ever Winter Break Camp! 


We are so excited to offer this brand new camp at the Broadway Theater in December.  Most North County San Diego schools are out for two or three weeks for the holiday break - but Mom and Dad still have to work -  so it made sense that we offer a holiday camp!  We love, love love our summer drama camps,  but we can't run this winter camp like our summer camps because familys will be visiting loved ones off and on during the break. So, our WINTER BREAK CAMP will be a 'drop in camp'.  This means you can register for one day at time.  If you book 4 or more days in a row you will receive a discount!  All the details on the Winter Break camp and the ONLINE REGISTRATION FORM can be found below!

The first day of class, we ask that the parent and the child show up at least 15minutes early. Parents need to fill out some paper work before the child can begin class with us. 

If you are a parent that needs to be with your child during their extra-curricular activities -- This workshop is not for you.  We want them to have fun and it’s stressful enough on the kids acting in front of Doug and I.


We ask that you send with your child the first day, (and every week thereafter), a three ring binder; something to record their songs with, two sharpened pencils; a water bottle with a closeable lid, and a small snack.  We have snacks available for $1.00 if you want to send money with your child.  ALSO, do not send your child in flips or dresses.  Tennis type shoes, and shorts or pants ONLY.


Once you have registered your child with the FORM or over the phone you will be charged a $50.00 HOLD MY SLOT FEE.  If you decide 7 days prior to the start of the workshop that you want to back out you will receive a full $100.00 refund.  You will only receive a $50.00 refund if you pull your child out after the 7 day deadline.


Every weeik the kids will do some form of craft having to do with the show.  Some of those crafts MAY be:


*   A color audition photo of your child suitable for any audition.
*   A completed costume design -- Done by your child.
*   A completed make-up design -- Done by your child
*   A completed set design -- Done by your child.
