Graceland Performing Arts Camp

Graceland Performing Arts Camp Returns for 2019

Elvis Presley’s Graceland - Memphis, Tennessee

Elvis Presley's Graceland has announced that due to overwhelming demand, the second annual Performing Arts Camp will be held over two weekends in July of 2019. Campers will learn acting, music and dance techniques alongside new friends from around the world. Two different date options are offered: the July 10-14 session is exclusively for kids ages 13-17, and the second, July 17-21, for kids ages 6-16 (with instruction segmented by age). This is a one-of-a-kind experience for the entire family as kids and teens have the unique opportunity to perform live on stage at Graceland.

Week 1: July 10-14, 2019 — Open to kids ages 13-17*
Week 2: July 17-21, 2019 — Open to kids ages 6-16*
*Campers must be ages as of 7/1/19.

In July 2018, Graceland welcomed over 60 kids from around the world to our first-ever performing arts camp. The camp opened to rave reviews from parents and kids, including Rich Thurfield, whose daughter Willa attended. “My little girl is forever changed by this experience and I am so grateful I got to witness it and be part of it with her. In just three short days, she got to sing, dance, be on stage by herself, make a ton of friends, and most importantly, she saw that one person with a power dream and the will to make it happen (and a little luck!) can absolutely change the world. That is the lesson of Elvis Presley…”

The camp is an immersive theater arts and music experience for both experienced and novice performers. Graceland Performing Arts Camp participants will learn from local and Broadway professionals as they explore their creativity in workshops on acting, singing and dancing at the Graceland Soundstage and on stage at The Guest House at Graceland Theater. Over the four days of activities, campers will develop a showcase, culminating in an evening performance on stage at The Guest House Theater for family and friends on Saturday night.


In addition, each camper will follow in the footsteps of Elvis Presley throughout their stay, as they explore the Graceland campus, tour Elvis’ legendary home, and learn how he became the greatest entertainer of all time – in the studio, on stage and on the big screen.

While campers are having fun during the day, parents and other family members will keep busy with Graceland activities including Graceland Archives presentations and tours, shuttle transportation to other Memphis attractions and relaxing poolside at The Guest House, before reuniting with their children in the evening for family dinners and activities.

There is limited-availability for each week. Camp packages include four nights at the AAA-rated Four Diamond resort The Guest House at Graceland, all meals for campers and families, camp activities and a tour of Graceland for an all-inclusive price starting at $1299 for two adults and one camper.
