Kids can brush up on their theater skills this summer with the Kamps for Kids program.

The event is sponsored by the Ellis County Children's Theater, and registration for the camp is officially open.

Since 2008, ECCT has provided the greater Ellis, Dallas and Tarrant Counties with professional summer theater and music programs for children in grades kindergarten through eighth.

"Our camps transform," expressed marketing chair Stephanie Shaeffer.

"As a parent, I cannot emphasize enough, the positive impact theater, most specifically ECCT, has had on my 9-year-old," said a past Kamp parent. "Through camps and productions, he has gained confidence, improved his speaking and communication skills, is able to focus for longer periods of time, built responsibility and most importantly found an outlet to release energy and have fun.

The parent continued, "It is an incredible blessing to have this organization and the individuals that continue to advocate for it in Ellis County."
