Program Highlights
Penn Charter Performing Arts Camp is proud to announce that we will be returning to a performance-based camp for our older campers. Performing Arts Camp: Show Camp will be a four-week-long performance experience for campers ages 9-14. Please know that campers for this camp will need to commit to all four weeks of camp to be part of the final show.

This year the camp performance will be Moana Jr.! Disney’s Moana Jr. is a 60-minute musical adaptation of the 2016 Disney animated film, bringing the adventures of Moana and her village of Motunui to life onstage. Moana Jr. features all the beloved songs from the film, written by Tony®, GRAMMY, Emmy and Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Lin-Manuel Miranda, Opetaia Foa’i and Mark Mancina, including “How Far I’ll Go,” “Shiny” and “You’re Welcome.”

This thrilling and heartwarming coming-of-age story follows the strong-willed Moana as she sets sail across the Pacific to save her village and discover the truth about her heritage. Moana and the legendary demigod Maui embark on an epic journey of self-discovery and camaraderie as both learn to harness the power that lies within. With empowering messages of bravery and selflessness, Moana Jr. is sure to bring out the hero within each of us.

Celebrating the rich history of Oceania and based on the beliefs and cultures of the people of the Pacific Islands, Moana was developed in collaboration with an Oceanic Trust – a group of anthropologists, cultural practitioners, historians, linguists and choreographers from the Pacific Islands.
