 The Gathering Place is hosting two free week-long camps this summer:

Social Justice & Activism

There are limited remaining seats, sign up today.

  • Who: Children ages 9-12

  • When: July 15th - 19th from 9am - 3pm

  • Where: Bethany Community Center, 500 Pilgrim Dr. (Dellview Neighborhood)

Advocacy is the act of making your voice heard through action in support of positive social change. Children are often told that what they do now will matter “one day”. During this camp, kids will see that their voices matter today. Campers will get to dive into key issues and ideas that matter to them, learn how to effectively advocate for their beliefs on those issues through writing, digital media, and connect with leaders throughout our community. Lastly, students will have the opportunity to present their work through a public showcase at the end of the week.

Imagination TheatrE

***UPDATE*** This camp has filled up, however you can still sign up to be placed on a waitlist. If a registered family can no longer attend we will replace their spot from the waitlist on a first-come first-serve basis.

  • Who: Children ages 6 - 8

  • When: July 29th - Aug 2nd from 9am - 3pm

  • Where: Bethany Community Center, 500 Pilgrim Dr. (Dellview Neighborhood)

  • Cost: Free

Take center stage (or backstage) this summer with the Imagination Theatre Camp! Students ages 6-8 will have the chance to create and collaborate as they write, star in, and construct technical elements for their very own theatrical production. Students will explore storytelling through script writing, learn acting techniques, and gain a greater sense of self-confidence as they collaborate to put on a show of their own imagination. There is something for everyone to try as students master the artistry of costume design, set building, prop making and even light and sound engineering.

The final day will culminate with a showcase for families displaying creations by students from the week and a live performance of their very own, one-of-a-kind play! Join us as we dive into a magical week of imagination and creation!

Each camp has only 25 open seats and they are filled on a first-come basis. While both camps are now on a waitlist, we encourage you to sign up. If any family has to withdraw their spot it will be filled in order of sign up by a camper on the waitlist. Any additional questions can be sent to or by phone at 210-444-2028.
