Hi Moana Jr. campers and families,

Today was a super exciting day here at Rock Ridge. The campers got their first rehearsals on the auditorium stage!

They spent their time in the performance space walking through much of the show with their directing teams and making sure they understood the differences in spacing between their rehearsal room and the stage. They were also able to admire all the beautiful work that's been completed by the tech campers over the past 7 days!

During the afternoon, the campers got the opportunity to sit back and watch the youth campers perform everything they've learned so far. The AMT Cast was a great audience, even giving the kids a standing ovation once they finished!

Other than that, they continued fixing moments throughout the script they still needed clarification and improvement on before dress rehearsals begin.

Be sure to check out our recap video below!

We can't wait to have everyone back in the morning!

Camp Dates and Times:

Monday, July 19th - Friday, July 23rd from 9 am - 4 pm

PERFORMANCE: Sunday, July 25th at 3 pm

TOMORROW IS FAVORITE COLOR DAY! Deck out in your favorite color!


Campers need to wear their newly tie dyed Moana Jr. shirts, black pants, preferably something they can comfortably move in, and jazz shoes for the performance. Please make sure they have all this ready for performances so our cast looks unified.
Moana Day 7 Recap


Please make sure campers continue to work on their vocals, lines, and dances at home. Students need to be off-book this entire week so they can get performance ready.


1. PICKUP TIME - Pickup starts promptly at 3:45. We ask that parents arrive as close to that time as possible so students aren't left to sit with our staff past camp's close

2. DROP OFF - When dropping off your students for the day, please pull all the way up. We ask that you don't park and get out of your cars to bring your students in the building, or allow your student to walk across the parking lot to arrive every day. It can be a safety issue and we don't have staff designated to watch traffic and crossing lanes for students.

3. JAZZ SHOES - If students don't already have their jazz shoes, they need to have them at the very latest by the start of camp this coming Monday. Please order them if you haven't yet!

4. KNEE PADS - Campers in the Ocean ensemble have multiple moments during the show in which they have to spend extended periods on their knees. If they would like, they are welcome to bring in knee pads for rehearsals for a little more comfort.

5. DRESS CODE - Please keep in mind the dress code when getting ready for camp each day. We want the campers to be comfortable, but not in any clothing that they may need to continually adjust as it can distract/limit them and their movement.



Please encourage your campers to practice! They learn a lot here and in order for them to be ready for their performance, we ask they use the videos below to review all they've been taught.

Jazz Shoes


Please make sure that your child has Jazz Shoes ready to go! While we will be providing a costume for every student, we do not provide shoes. Please visit Amazon and type in "JAZZ SHOE." They can be either tan or black. HERE IS A LINK TO SOME JAZZ SHOES ONLINE

How do I purchase tickets?

You will be receiving an email from our Assistant Education Director, Ian Underhill. This email will have a ticket code valued at $24 (two tickets at $12). You may use this code to purchase tickets or offset the cost of tickets for the performances.

Additionally, instructions on how to purchase will be in this email.

Tickets will go on sale to you on Monday, July 12th, and to the public on July 13th.

If you have questions about purchasing tickets or accessing your ticket codes, please email Ian Underhill at

We will allow up to 600 audience members per performance so that tickets will be open to the general public, and there will be no limit on how many tickets you can purchase.


Our Communication page is an awesome resource for you! Not only will it inform you about who to direct your questions to over the next two weeks, but it will also help you track all of the information. Each day of camp, we will be sending you an email and placing it on the communication page. Check it out here!


Clear Bins


We request that all students bring their materials in a clear bin. No book bags. This allows us to help students quickly and efficiently find materials. Additionally, the clear bin is a great way for students to store things in a tidy way. Would you please not bring book bags to the program? We strongly recommend a large enough bin to fit a folder, a lunch box, shoes, make-up, and misc. Items.

Here is the Link we are recommending from Amazon.


Please be sure to pack lunches. Microwaves will not be available. Lunches will be served between 12 and 1. If a student forgets to bring a lunch, please bring it to the school and leave it with the Director of Health and Safety, Ms. Katie Rivers.

Please steer clear of anything with nuts, as we have a few students with severe nut allergies.
