The Beverly Arts Center is proud to announce BAC Summer Show Camp, beginning June 2023! This full-day camp will provide a unique, elevated arts experience for students in rising grades Kindergarten through 8th. Students will work with arts professionals to create two productions while still enjoying the traditional arts and crafts, playtime,and teaching artist workshops that former campers know and love.
