“Under the expert guidance of renowned international performer and Wadley native, Julia Langley, who is returning for her 14th year as camp director,” the release said. “‘Swashbucklers on the Seven Seas’ will provide an exceptional opportunity for young performers to hone their skills and showcase their talents. This year, NHCT is delighted to introduce a Masters class, exclusively available to students aged 15 to 18, further enriching the camp experience.”

The camp will be held at the New Horizon Theatre, located at 411 West 8th Street, P.O. Box 131, West Point, GA 31833, and will operate from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. ET throughout the week. Participants can expect a week filled with engaging activities, including acting workshops, choreography sessions, and music rehearsals. The highlight of the camp, the release said, “will be an extraordinary finale show scheduled for July 24, where campers will demonstrate their newfound skills in a spectacular performance.”

Registration for the camp is $215 per camper (ages 6-14). Qualified Master Class attendees (ages 15+) can participate for a discounted fee of $115. Families with multiple campers will receive a special discount, and both camp options include a camp t-shirt. NHCT encourage early registration to guarantee a place as spaces are limited.
