Thelma Gaylord Academy

Summer 2020 Digital Summer Camps and Classes 

May 18-August 7 

The Academy team has put our heads together and developed a summer full of online camps and classes to keep us learning, creating, having fun, and growing together. Since these are unlike anything we’ve ever offered before, we understand that there may be questions. We are here for you!

Please check out our list of classes and camps, and package deals see what fits your interest, and join us.

How Do These Camps Work?

One week camps: One week of camp, meeting every day for five days straight–similar to a one week camp.

Five-week camps: Camp will meet one day a week for five weeks in a row–similar to a semester class.

All 5-day and 5-week camps will meet for two hours per class time per session. For some classes, this will be consecutive hours, but for some classes we will meet for one hour, break, and reconvene for the second hour at another time during the day. This timing will be arranged so that all enrolled students will be available.

Classes for ages 5-7 will meet for one hour per camp day.

Learning with ZOOM
Digital Summer Camps will take place via the Zoom platform. You can create an account with Zoom at www.zoom.us and explore their platform if you have not yet visited. It is encouraged that you experiment with Zoom at home with your computer, cell phone, tablet, or however you intend to access classes prior to your class beginning.

Financial assistance is available upon request. Please email rozz@LyricTheatreOKC.org for a scholarship application. It’s our goal to make these camps accessible to all kids.
