About CYT Camps

CYT Summer Camp is one of the most affordable quality musical theater camps in San Diego. We offer a variety of day camps for ages 5 to 18. Campers rotate through theater workshops including dance, drama, and voice as well as play exciting theater games, participate in showcase rehearsal, make life long friends and more! At the end of the week all campers perform in a musical theater showcase for family and friends, featuring a variety of songs, dances and drama. CYT San Diego also offers an overnight camp for ages 13-18. CYT Camps are high energy, super fun, and the best week ever!


Day Camp

CYT Day Camps are a non-stop thrill ride for kids ages 5-12! Campers spend 5 days singing, dancing, acting, making friends, playing games, and having a blast! On the last day of camp, students will showcase skills they learned throughout the week, for family and friends. Don’t miss out on this high energy week filled with CYT fun! Our camps are split into four ages groups: 

Mini Camp 5-6 year olds
Youth Camp 7-8 year olds
Junior Camp 9-10 year olds 
Senior Camp 11-12 year olds 

Teen Retreat

Merry Christmas in July! Hang your stocking and sip on some cocoa at the biggest teen overnight event of the CYT year! Sometimes it’s good to get away for a few days to refresh, recharge, and RETREAT! Highlights include guest speakers, campfire circle, night games, kiddy-pool-kick-ball, skits, night swim, worship music, deep discussion, lifelong friendships, and more. This summer, why not treat yourself to CYT Teen Retreat! Take your love of theater to the next level as we learn to grow as individuals, and help change our world one stage at a time! Note: This is an overnight camp with a duration of 4 nights and 5 days.

International Musical Theater Camp - Beat Bugs!

CYT International Musical Theater Camp is a unique, multicultural, summer experience, unlike any other musical theater camp in the world! Students from Shanghai, China will travel to southern California to join with American campers for this commingled camp, open to kids ages 10-15. Campers rotate through theater workshops including dance, drama, and voice, play exciting theater games, audition and rehearse for a professional musical, and make life long friends from across the globe! 

Beat Bugs, a new musical adaptation based on the NETFLIX animated series, inspired by music made famous by The Beatles, centers around five pals who explore the world and learn life lessons. Follow Walter, Buzz, Jay, Crick, and Kumi as they go on a mission to save Strawberry Fields!

This camp has closed.  Thank you so much to everyone who participated in this camp and came to see our Beat Bugs International Show!  We look forward to more international partnerships!

Camp Showcase

At the end of camp, students perform in a showcase they have rehearsed over the course of their fun-filled week. Parents get to come watch their kids perform the material they have learned free of charge! The Camp Showcase is a celebration of the week’s work and gives kids a glimpse into the energy and excitement of being part of a full CYT production.
