We began our mission with a mind to change lives through theatre, dance, music, and art. Our students have performed, competed, and learned so much in the short time we have been in business.
Furthermore, our work has inspired a community to come together and create a community theatre which generated the needed funds to provide our services to all students in our area, regardless of their financial situations.
We came together not just with the expertise needed to teach young minds, but with the mindset that believes that these kids are capable of anything they work for. We hire the type of individuals who know the impact our services can have on young people, and who care about giving the gift of inspiration.
Through friendship, The Banner Studios has grown to be a top-level studio providing classes, competitive teams, productions, and our acclaimed summer camp program, recommended in a personal review by educational specialist Dr. Pamela Harris, Ed. S.
We are overjoyed to be preparing for our third season of C-SHY. Affectionately named by our first batch of adventure-seeking, art-loving campers, Camp Super Heck Yeah is the best way to spend these hot Idaho summer days for children age 5-12. We enjoy river trips, lake picnics, hiking, and park visits while working together on a musical theatre production as a team.
An overnight camp trip is also available once per month with an outdoor cooking workshop and a challenge to entertain ourselves without electronics!
Our older kids (age 13+) often find their place with us as camp staff or junior staff members. Junior staff assist the younger kids in activities and allow every camper to receive specialized instruction that they deserve. Camp staff are paid and learn valuable work skills while enjoying a rewarding summer of fun.
Natural science is explored through our numerous outdoor activities, learning about the plants and wildlife that inhabit our amazing state. Through gardening projects, sewing costumes, set design, and set construction, our campers leave with practical skills that they will utilize as they grow older and become more independent.
Our campers learn to read music and experiment with instruments while gaining a sense of rhythm and coordination through our daily dance and yoga exercises. Music and dance stimulate all regions of the cerebral cortex and engage every area of the brain.
This type of education has been linked to high academic achievement in all areas of core study. Our regular swimming, hiking, and water activities keep our kids active and allow them to enjoy their exercise time, and release built-up energy without the structure and rules of our classroom.
At C-SHY, we aim to address nutritional needs within the community by providing breakfast, lunch, and snacks daily. In a town where over 64% of families are living in poverty, it is our goal to allow children from all families to participate in appropriate recreation, educational engagement, and the overall camp experience that may otherwise be unavailable to children from low-income families.
Campers of all ages will find their fit with our loving staff and our wide range of activities. There is something for everyone, and everyone is welcome.
Join us for memorable times in this wonderful state of ours, and catch your star performer in their Banner debut at our end of camp performance. This season, we are working on ANNIE the musical. This classic has memorable songs and a heartwarming story that will delight the whole family.
Available Monday through Friday from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm. Extended hours may be available upon request. Campers must be enrolled in at least one day per week for most of the summer to be included in our end of summer production.
