StarQuest Rocked It!

Unbelievable! What an amazing summer we had! In four short weeks, camp StarQuest became a home away from home… a place where our campers transformed into rockin’ StarQuest Super Stars!

The last week of camp was action packed! Not only did they perform an incredible production of High School Musical Jr., but they also brought the spirit and battled it out in “true camper” style for our Battle of the Stars 2022 color war/Maccabi. Upon announcement of our winning team this year, Hollywood Red, we all congratulated each other for the camaraderie, artistry, creativity and fun! As always, at StarQuest we concluded with our traditional Battle of the Starts Song Fest, award ceremony, closing appreciation circle, cookies, hugs, tears and so much love!

At Camp StarQuest, we have been honored to have the opportunity to know your kids, watch their creativity soar and their minds grow. The bonds, friendships, and the memories made will be cherished for years to come. We miss our amazing campers already, and the countdown to Camp StarQuest 2023 has already begun!

High School Musical Jr.

Camp StarQuest Campers – Wow, just wow!

Our campers were mesmerizing from the moment they took the stage. The positive energy from the audience was palatable. We couldn’t be prouder of their hard work, commitment, and dedication, not only to their craft, but to each other. They clearly put to use all that they had learned in our specialty voice, dance, and acting classes in the mornings, and brought that focus and energy to our afternoon rehearsals to make High School Musical Jr. come to life for the J stage. We hope they are still relishing in their success.

Stay tuned as we will video available of the show likely toward the end of the month. I will keep you posted by sending out an additional communication about the video in the weeks to come. I will likely also send out a drop box link to a photo album of some awesome photos our professional photographer took at our final tech rehearsal prior to showtime!

Inside Peak into Battle of the Stars & End of Camp

Battle of the Stars: 2022 Color War was a hit! What an amazing break out we had on Wednesday night. Thank you for being in on our “secret.” The last two days of camp, we laughed, we ran, we cheered, we smiled, we sang, we danced, we hugged!
A snap shot of some special highlights…

  • Battle of the Stars Break Out – Hollywood Red vs. Broadway Blue
  • Arriving dressed in true battle of the stars spirit
  • Field Day – egg toss, watermelon eat, potato on a spoon and potato sack relay, and tug of war to name a few
  • Room-decorating contest
  • Song Fest – each team was taught two songs…an alma mater, a cheer, learned a march and created a banner
  • Awards – everyone received an award and our all-around camper award was given out
  • Final Appreciation Circle

We are all so sad Camp StarQuest has come to an end. The last four weeks have been amazing!
Our final closing circle solidified this summer was all we had wished it to be for our amazing campers. We can’t wait for them to walk into the school year with a truer sense of self, more confidence, and a deeper compassion for others. Their love of the arts certainly grew stronger, skill sets improved greatly, but perhaps most importantly… they learned a wealth of life lessons they can carry with them wherever they go and made friendships that will last forever doing what they love. Hats off to our amazing staff for changing lives and to our awesome, fantastic super campers who gave 100% everyday. We will miss you, but look forward to seeing next year.

We accomplished all we set out to do and then some. Please join us during the year and be a part of our JPAS awesome programming.

Mark your calendars! If you loved Camp StarQuest, then you will enjoy many of our fall classes too!
Don’t fill up your camper’s fall schedule until you consider what we will be offering. Registration will open in the next few weeks (by mid August), and registration will fill up quickly! Many of our talented specialty staff will be teaching classes in the fall.

While we don’t put on a full-scale production—that happens in the Spring (January–March/April, so stay tuned)—we will be having a Broadway Revue Class that will culminate in a showcase, along with a straight play, and masterclasses taught by professionals who have been seen on Broadway, both nationally and locally!

I am confident our new exciting programs will satisfy your actor’s theater bug, hone new artistic skills to enhance their talent, and teach life lessons… and of course bring good ole fashion fun! We also plan to do some fun JPAS social events, too. Stay connected and keep this positive energy going!
