Hanford High School

Fame Camp is held in the auditorium and surrounding classrooms at Hanford High School. You'll be acting in the black box theatre, dancing on the main stage, singing in the music room, and learning about technical theatre in the drama classroom. 

Drop-off will happen at the south entrance to Hanford High


July 15-26, 2024 | 12:45-5:00 p.m.

Drop-off is at 12:45 p.m. each afternoon, when you'll meet up with your fellow campers, stash any personal items, and get ready for a great day of theatre. 

Pick-up is promptly at 5:00 each day, until we get to our final day of camp. On our last day, we'll put on a showcase in the Hanford auditorium for friends and family. We can't wait to show you what we've learned!
