For Summer programs, register your child for the camp based on the grade they are going into the following school year. For example: 'rising' 3rd graders should be registered for a 3rd grade camp.


  • For safety purposes, please remain in your vehicle with your students throughout the check-in process.
  • Check-in begins 15 minutes prior to your camp’s scheduled start time at the designated Welcome Point. Welcome Points are notated in the Welcome Email from the Education Department.
  • At your scheduled check-in time, report to your assigned Welcome Point, join the car line, and remain in your vehicle. A designated staff member greets you to facilitate the check-in process.
  • Once students have been checked-in, parents should clear the area to expedite other check-ins.
  • Staff members will be available at your designated Welcome Point until 15 minutes after the start of class.
    • If you are running later than 15 minutes, please inform the Education Department by email or phone, and plan to drop your student off at the front of the building (Welcome Point Purple).


    • Camps check-out from their designated Welcome Point at the end of the scheduled camp day. Please report to your assigned Welcome Point, join the car line, and remain in your vehicle.
    • To expedite pick-up, parents are provided two car sheets with their student’s last name to be placed on the dashboard for pick-up. This allows our staff to prepare your student for pick-up when your vehicle approaches the Welcome Point.
    • Parents and approved pick-up individuals must have the provided car sheets displayed on the dashboard when picking up.
      • Approved pick-up individuals without a car sheet displayed are required to present a photo ID to pick-up their student. Photo IDs must match the name on the approved pick-up list.
      • Pick up authorization lists are generated from information collected at registration. Additional names may be added to the pick-up list by emailing [email protected].
    • A staff member escorts your student to the vehicle for curbside pick-up.
    • Once your student’s pick-up is complete, please clear the area to expedite other pick-ups.
    • Please inform the Education Department if you are running late by either emailing [email protected], or by calling 407.896.7365 x219

Parents needing to drop-off / pick-up students outside of the normal drop-off / pick-up times may pull up to the main entrance.

9th-12th grade students may utilize self-check in/out by bringing in a self-check in/out form filled out by a guardian. These are available upon parent request on the first day of class or during registration.

  • Self driving students must have a signed self-check in/out form.
    • Self-check in/out only applies to arrival and dismissal, not breaks during the day. If breaks are long enough that Orlando Family Stage allows students to leave, the education office still needs permission from a parent.

Classes/Camps/Performance Workshops

    • If a student withdraws from a class before the first day of class, the registration cost is refunded, less the $25 administrative fee.
    • If a student withdraws from a class at any time on or after the day of the program, no refunds are given. The only exception is a medical reason, which requires a physician’s note. In the event of a withdrawal due to a medical issue, the registration fee is prorated, the unused portion is refunded, and the administrative fee waived.
    • Orlando Family Stage reserves the right to alter or cancel scheduled programs as necessary. If a program is cancelled, a full refund of the cancelled program’s tuition is issued.
    • If we must cancel an in-person class prior to the start date due to Covid-19, a full refund is issued within 5-7 business days. If the in-person class is already in session, prorated refunds are issued upon cancellation.

Students should dress in shoes and clothes in which they can comfortably move.

  • We play a variety of theatre games for which dresses/skirts, and sandals/flip-flops are not appropriate.
  • Clunky or excessive jewelry is discouraged.

  • Please submit info on the Medical Form at registration.
  • Basic first aid, such as adhesive bandages and ice packs, are available. Orlando Family Stage staff does not administer pain relievers or other medications to students.
  • Orlando Family Stage staff is trained to administer Epi-Pens, if necessary. A Severe Allergy Form must be completed for children with Epi Pens.
  • Orlando Family Stage requires emergency telephone numbers on file for parents/guardians, as well as emergency contact numbers for a secondary person when primary contacts cannot be reached.
  • In the event of an emergency, Orlando Family Stage may call 911 for medical attention on behalf of a student.
  • If medical treatment is necessary, every attempt to reach the primary parents/guardians is made.
  • Secondary contacts are a last resort.

Orlando Family Stage does not typically allow parents/guardians into the classroom. Parents are invited to walk their student into check-in, but we ask you to be mindful of the car line traffic. Families and friends are invited to a presentation on the last day of class where students will show off all they have learned and practiced!


Half-day 4-5 year old camps have a snack break.

9am-2pm camps have a lunch break in the middle of their day.

9am-4pm camps have a lunch break in the middle of their day and one additional snack break.


Performance Workshops and the Youth Academy productions are the only classes that have snack/meal breaks.


  • Please avoid packing products with peanut or tree-nut ingredients. Thank you for your help in keeping all our students safe and healthy as we have many students with severe nut allergies.
  • Most classes have multiple water breaks in which students may want to have a quick snack if they get hungry often. Snacks are not provided for students who do not bring them, unless specific arrangements have been made between parents and staff. Water bottles are recommended.
  • Students are encouraged to put their name on everything.

Only for Summer and Spring Break and specific camps based on day/availability

    • See registration materials for times and cost.

  • There are no auditions required to register for classes, camps, or Performance Workshops at Orlando Family Stage.

      • Casting is at the discretion of the Teaching Artists for the best possible production and learning experience for the students.
  • Youth Academy productions do require auditions. These auditions are held at the beginning of each semester, usually in August for the fall production (3-8 grades), January for the spring production (3-8 grades), and April/May for the summer production (7-12 grades). You can find more information here.
