Camp in a Box
About Camp in a Box
Looking for a new activity to spark creativity at home this summer? Check out our series of four opera box kits, and get a taste of our after-school program at home. Each box is filled with a curated selection of our favorite activities designed to spark exploration and play in music, theater, and writing. Sign up for the opera box series, and you’ll receive a new box in the mail every week for a month:
- Week #1: Musician’s kit
- Week #2: Storyteller’s kit
- Week #3: Performer’s kit
- Week #4: Bonus kit: The Songwriting Challenge
Grade-level specific boxes are available for students in incoming Kindergarten through 8th grade. Order by Monday, July 13th to receive all 4 kits. (Orders still open for kits #2-4) All students will be invited to join a weekly, 1-hour sharing session on zoom with Little Opera teaching artists (Wednesdays, 4-5pm). Go here for more information about share days and how to join them.
Pricing is pay-what-you-want, with a suggested donation of $40/student. There is no minimum donation to receive a kit—simply order one below, and get ready to create!
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Do you need any special music skills to participate?
A: Nope! All levels of students are welcome.
Q: What will be in each box?
A: Each box will contain supplies for a DIY project, and a collection of creative challenges for students to complete at their own pace.
Q: How much does it cost?
A: Pricing is pay-what-you-want, by donation. We suggest a $40 donation per student for the series, but if you can’t pay anything, that’s okay too. And if you are inspired to make a larger donation, we’ll use the extra funds to mail out boxes to more students who are unable to make a donation.

A: Yes! All students will be invited to join a weekly, 1-hour sharing session on zoom with Little Opera teaching artists (Wednesdays, 4-5pm). Instructions for how to join the session will be included in each box.
Q: When can we expect to receive the first box?
A: Boxes will be mailed weekly, beginning on July 16th.
