How will this new online format work? How will my child attend class?
A Daily Schedule, complete with secure classroom links, will be emailed to your camper each day through the email you provide to us. The instructor will be waiting for them in their own virtual classroom. All of the day’s scheduled activities will be accessed through the links provided in the Daily Schedule email. Any one-on-one activity links will also be included in the Daily Schedule email.
Will the instructors direct them from class to class, or will they need to do it themselves?
The campers will need to use the links provided in the Daily Schedule email to get themselves to their scheduled sessions. We recommend doing a trial run on Zoom before the first day of camp.
What kind of space inside my home will my child need for these classes?
They'll need a space that meets three main criteria:
A place where they will be comfortable for extended periods of time
An environment that is relatively quiet, and free of distractions from other family members. Not only so they can hear the classroom, but also so lots of background noise doesn’t create a distraction for other campers.
A room with enough space where they can get out of their seat and move around! They’ll need ample space to dance and still be able to see the Zoom class on the screen.
We recommend doing a trial run before the first day of camp. Use the trial run to determine the most appropriate space in your home, the best spot to place the computer, and make sure there’s room to dance.
What should my child wear for camp?
Campers should wear the same type of clothing that would be appropriate for an in-person camp day. It is important that they wear clothing that allows them to comfortably move and dance. As always, campers should wear closed toe shoes during all movement activities.
What if my child only wants to do one or two classes per day?
Broadway Zoomcamp’s curriculum has been thoughtfully designed to build and develop skills over the course of the two-week program. In addition, many of our activities will be geared toward preparing for our final performance. We expect and encourage all campers to participate in every scheduled activity. Should your child need to be absent, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Will there be auditions? How will “casting” work this summer?
There won’t be “auditions” and “casting” in the same way we’ve done it in previous summers. During the first day or two of camp, our faculty will be getting to know our new campers and reacquainting with former campers. They’ll assess each child’s talents, abilities, and comfort level. Instructors will then work as a team to select material for each camper to perform in our final Showcase. In choosing material, we’ll also carefully consider each child’s experience, maturity and interest level. While we’ll be choosing material with an eye toward creating an exciting and entertaining Showcase, our most important goal is for each and every camper to have fun and feel successful.
In the following days, many of our Zoom activities will provide opportunities for campers to work on their assigned Showcase piece with our instructors. But, because we’re not rehearsing a full, scripted production, not every ZOOMCAMP class will focus on the final Showcase. We’ll have lots of other fun activities to build skills and learn new things.

What is the refund policy for Broadway ZOOMCAMP?
We understand that you might be hesitant to register your child for an online summer theatre camp, so we’re making a unique offer just for this summer. If, by the end of the second day of camp (July 14), you aren’t happy with the Broadway ZOOMCAMP program, you can opt out of the remainder of the session and receive a full tuition refund. This request must be sent by email to email@example.com by 6 p.m. After those times, no refund will be available. Once your registration is cancelled, your child will no longer receive Daily Schedule emails, and will not have access to ZOOMCAMP activities.
