Over a three-week period, children at Camp Red Kite will participate in Music & Movement, Theatre & Drama Games, and Arts & Crafts classes. The CRK curriculum taps into strategies to ensure a high comfort level for all campers, including a consistent, highly-structured schedule that is displayed pictorially in each room. The experienced staff gives personal attention to each camper, shaping the camp experience so that each child can engage in his or her own way and feel successful. The program will culminate in a final showcase to share the Camp Red Kite experience with family and friends.
We hope you will consider Camp Red Kite when choosing a summer program for your child!

Camp Red Kite Interns
Chicago Children's Theatre seeks ambitious interns for Camp Red Kite, a program dedicated to providing a high quality arts experience tailored specifically to the unique interests and needs of children on the autism spectrum. Interns will operate alongside CCT staff as campers explore music, movement, art, and drama. Interns will also assist in administrative tasks such as program and web support.
Qualified interns do not necessarily need prior experience with special needs children, but must have the sensitivity to handle delicate situations in this setting. A mandatory training week will be held prior to the commencement of Camp Red Kite. Arts and/or education experience is a plus.
