BRISTOL, Tn/Va — Theatre Bristol announces its 2017 children's summer camp The Start of Adventure 2017, running July 17-21 at 512 State Street, Bristol, Tennessee.

Campers explore theater and acting skills from talented and highly respected teachers and theater veterans in the area. "We're really excited to be able to continue our camp program," said Seth Gilstrap, camp co-coordinator. "We're also very thankful to the professionals who will be teaching the campers valuable theatrical skills and knowledge," added co-coordinator Emma Kennedy. Guided by the Theatre Bristol Youth Service Board, campers spend the week learning acting skills, creative movement, music, costuming, makeup design, set design, props and more.

At the end of the week, campers perform three classic tales from Aesop's Fables on the ARTspace stage. Friday evening, the Youth Service Board open their production of "The Importance of Being Earnest," which campers and their families are also invited to attend.

The Start of Adventure 2017 is organized by the YSB, with guidance and counsel from the Theatre Bristol Board of Directors. "I see camp as a great way for the YSB to learn leadership, organization, planning and responsibility," said James Altman, the Youth Service Board president, "We have all had wonderful opportunities on and off stage, and now we get a chance to offer our experience and knowledge to the next generation of young actors. I know our founder, Cathy DeCaterina would be proud."

Camp runs Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., with early drop-off and late pick-up times available. Theatre Bristol provides a healthy snack in the afternoon, however campers need to pack a lunch each day. Registration is available online. The cost per camper is $150, with a family discount of each additional child reduced to $75. Extra charges apply for early drop off and late pick up options. Financial assistance applications are also available. Space is limited so register soon!
