Enrollment for Black Rep's Summer Camp of the Arts begins now. The camp will run from June 23rd to -August 18th from 7 AM to 6 PM! Each year working parents have the joy and relief of the Black Rep holding a camp that brings a full day of crafts, arts and dancing, singing and acting, and oh yes-lunch! Dr. Mona Scott was recently acknowledged by Ismael Reed for this consistent outstanding contribution to the community and children of Berkeley Oakland. The summer camp adds to the lives of the children, fills their summer with an array of actors and artist who work with the children to introduce them to the fun of theater, and the discoveries they make of their own talents and skills encouraged by the process of the theater.
Registration is encouraged now, and has begun. Black Rep is located directly across from Ashby BART. "Extremely affordable for the working parents that need extended care," the Black Rep Summer Camp staff are available to talk to you about what to expect in this great summer theater experience for all children.

Faye Carol has spoken of her participation in Black Reps Summer Camp of the arts, and the value to the community of artists who participate in the children's summer programs. "Everybody can Sing," is Faye's message to the world, and she sees the opportunity to have children find their voice as a contribution through experiences that allow their creativity and natural enthusiasm to shine. A performing artist, she is known for supporting the Oakland school for the Arts, and the Jazz Choir, but enjoys her summer with the kids at the Black Rep when her schedule permits.
Each summer children at the Black Rep Summer Camp experience a connection of care from this community, and an experience of their own creativity enhanced and inspired by Mona Scott, Vaughn Scott and the community of artists who make up the camp.
