    Hidden Valley Alive is our camp’s advanced teen arts summer program for Creative and Performing Arts for ages 14-16 years old. The program cultivates emerging artists’ creative potential and provides opportunities to explore a variety of visual and performing arts at any level with our staff of professional artists.

    Students work on two main projects, a gallery for their visual artwork and an original music, dance and theater production. The schedule includes many days filled with a variety of arts activities and other days with intensive performance or visual arts workshops. Trips to significant Maine art venues round out the experience.

    Programs include -

    Theater: acting, improv, play-writing, musical theater, experimental theater, comedy.

    Dance: jazz, modern, ballet, cultural dance, choreography, and contact improv. 

    Communication Arts: writing, poetry, photography, video, computer art.

    Music: singing, song-writing, guitar, rock band.

    Students live in their own 1800s restored, eight-room cottage together with the group’s professional counseling staff. The cottage is situated on the camp’s 300 acres of woods, fields and a private lake. The group makes use of Hidden Valley’s five art, music and dance studios and large performance spaces.
