Now Celebrating Our 20th Season!
Creating new theatre for the Pikes Peak region


Millibo offers BIG adventures for curious minds all summer long!

We give our all to creating innovative and imaginative camps that encourage participants aged 4 to 18 to dive-in and explore the endless possibilities of the Performing Arts.

With over twenty years of experience, Millibo camps are especially developed to empower students to express their unique creativity through theatre, movement, music, improv, circus and the visual arts.

One and two week camps run throughout the summer and meet daily for both half day and full day sessions.  The theatre, rehearsal studio and outdoor tent provide excellent learning spaces for all camps.  Grouped by age, all camps have a limited enrollment of 12 students per camp ensuring that every student’s experiences is personal, up-close and hands-on.


At the Millibo Art Theatre, we foster learning environments and experiences that feature trusting and collaborative relationships, a creative and meaningful curriculum and supportive, professional instruction that ignites imaginations, flexes problem-solving abilities, grows language and physical dexterity, and encourages children to innovate, create, and dream!

Whether your child’s school was fully remote or hybrid this semester, chances are they spent extensive amounts of time in front of a screen. If, like many parents, you are working from home, you may be relying more heavily on television and video games to keep your kids entertained. Let us help!

Creative play is critical for the physical, emotional, and mental health of children. For almost twenty years the Millibo has offered programming that inspires youth to grow as artists and innovators and we are poised to support your child’s learning and social health during these difficult times. Our experiences running summer camps and afterschool and weekend workshops this Fall, confirm our belief in the importance of creative engagements for kids, and our ability to provide safe environments where this can happen.


The safety and health of your child(ren) remains our priority, and as Coronavirus guidance continues to evolve, we will follow all guidelines and updates provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Colorado Department for Public Health and Environment for Child Care.Daily screening and temperature check of all students, staff and teachers
