Info on Kamp: Kamp Kuumba is the Madame Walker Theatre Center’s signature youth empowerment program. Kuumba,  – an African term for “creativity” –  is the basis from which this performing arts program for youth is built. Using creativity to develop self-confidence; cultural-identity; self-love, and art appreciation is at the core of Kamp Kuumba. Youth leave Kamp Kuumba inspired, empowered, and with a strong awareness of arts and culture. Additionally, campers participate in vocal, dance, theatre, music, and visual arts classes. Kamp happens three times per year – for two weeks in the fall; two weeks in the spring; and 8 weeks in the summer. Aimed at empowering youth – particularly low-income and underserved – this camp is the only professionally led performing arts camp of its kind exposing youth to art, culture, and entrepreneurship. An affordable option to continue enrichment and education during school breaks, Kamp Kuumba fees are on a sliding scale.

The Madame Walker Theatre Center exists to advance the legacy of our namesake through art, entertainment, cultural education, youth empowerment, entrepreneurship and civic engagement.
