The Rangeley Friends of the Arts is offering three different week-long day camps in drama for youth this summer at the RFA Lakeside Theater, 2493 Main St.

Whatever COVID guidelines are appropriate at the time will be used, according to a news release from RFA.

• July 11-15, Drama Camp Week 1 for children ages 7-9, will be led by Michaela Beckmann, a resident of Arlington, Massachusetts, who has been visiting Rangeley her entire life. She fell in love with theatre at 13 years old, and since then has performed onstage and backstage, and directed. Professionally, she has worked as a wardrobe manager and dresser. She helped last year at Drama Camp, which meets from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.  each day.

• July 18-22, Drama Camp Week 2 for children ages 10-12, is also led by Beckmann. The camp meets from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day.

• Aug. 8-12, TEEN Drama Week for youth ages 13-18, is led by Lindsay (MacNaughton) Hinojosa, a theater artist and educator from Brooklyn, New York. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in drama from Syracuse University, toured the U.S. and Canada with the prestigious Missoula Children’s Theatre, and is a performer and director for the award-winning performance troupe and media company, Story Pirates. The camp meets from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day.

Each camp will have a finale performance at 1 p.m. on the last day. People should register soon to secure placement.

There is a fee for each camp; scholarships are available.
