Join the Chicago Children’s Theatre for “Camp Red Kite 2024.” Camp will run from July 15 through Aug. 2 on Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Camp Red Kite is a dynamic, engaging and welcoming theatre day camp designed for youth on the autism spectrum.

During three fun-filled weeks, campers will rotate between classes with their age-appropriate small groups. Youth with autism ages 8 to 22 will build confidence as they have fun exploring:

  • Drama
  • Music
  • Movement
  • Visual arts

A trained team of theatre artists, administrators, and Chicago Public Schools Diverse Learner teachers lead Camp Red Kite. They are dedicated to creating a safe, welcoming, and engaging environment.

The experience encourages self-expression, social engagement and creative exploration! Camp will wrap up with a final showcase and potluck lunch to share the Camp Red Kite experience with family and friends.

The camp fee is $900. Financial assistance is available. Please complete the online financial assistance form before registering.
