Whether you went to a summer sleepaway or band camp, the memories are pretty unforgettable. While most of us may reminisce about canoes and bonfires, some lucky Bellingham kids will remember a summer camp filled with stage lights, costumes, and creativity.

Mount Baker Theatre will welcome 180 kids aged 7–18 to their stage this month for three separate week-long theater camps hosted by Missoula Children’s Theatre. Based out of Missoula, Montana, MCT is recognized as the largest touring children’s theater in the nation. This year will mark MCT’s 17th visit to Mount Baker Theatre.

These camps are the only of their kind in the area, says Mount Baker Theatre’s program director, Renee Gaumond. During the camps, campers are cast and rehearse diligently throughout the week, which culminates in a full-length musical production. This summer’s selections are “Jack and the Beanstalk,” “The Snow Queen,” and “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.”

Performances will take place on Friday, July 12th and 26th, and August 2nd at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m.
