About Us The Columbia Gorge School of Theatre (CGST) is a full-time sleep away performing arts camp. It is an actor training program for youth of all ages from around the world who can't get enough theatre. We pride ourselves on providing a safe, supportive environment free of criticism and full of fun, support, and love. We feel that a rigorous theatre training program helps students gain a sense of community, improves communication skills, and raises self-esteem.
CGST offers a well-rounded experience to challenge and encourage artistic and personal growth. With a maximum enrollment of 64 total students at the camp at any time (average of 16 students per classroom), we are an intimate program with lots of one-on-one attention. Students are trained in all the best areas of theatre: Acting, Music, Singing, Dance, Voice, TV/Film Acting, and The Biz. They also take to the stage in a show and enjoy other activities.
