Calling all theater and nature-lovers! Join Earthroots instructor Angela Capps for a fun filled week of Forest Theatre Camp! Angela brings her passion for acting and professional training and experience in theater, improv, and music. 

Children ages 5-14 are invited to spend the week in the unspoiled beauty of Big Oak Canyon for this exciting camp. Big Oak, Earthroots 39-acre property located on ancestral Acjachemen and Tongva territory in Silverado Canyon, California, is the perfect backdrop for our Forest Theatre Camp. This land includes 200+ year old oak trees, diverse native flora, flowing creeks and ample intact ecosystems, for children to observe and explore. 

The children will learn and perform Wild, A Week At Nature Camp, an original nature themed script written by Angela. They will participate in various aspects of the production including character development, dances, singing, improv and prop building. This camp will help kids build confidence and deepen their connection with the natural world.  We will go on nature walks at the end of each day of camp. Singing and dancing will be optional.

The week of camp will end in a spectacular display of talent and fun as campers showcase the original skit for friends and family. Enthusiastic applause guaranteed!

About the Instructor


Angela Capps loves nurturing and encouraging children’s natural imaginations. As an Earthroots teacher and theatre instructor, Angela appreciates that nature connection is essential for the soul.

After studying theatre and improv at South Coast Repertory and Improv Olympic, she received her early childhood education teaching certificate and began teaching preschool music and children’s theatre. 

 A homeschooling mom of two from Mission Viejo, she developed her fascination with nature as a young child camping with her family in remote locations.  At Earthroots, Angela enjoys combining her love for the creative arts with the beauty of the outdoors. She believes that when spending more time in nature, children (and adults)  have the opportunity to slow down, find more joy and realize that nature is for everyone!
