Campers have traveled to Amish Acres from the likes of Bloomington, Carmel, Valparaiso, Fort Wayne, New Carlisle, Griffith, and Edwardsburg, Michigan; not to mention Bristol, Plymouth, Rochester, Granger, Goshen, Elkhart, Nappanee, and Wakarusa.
Not only do campers perform on the Round Barn Theatre’s proscenium stage, but they have also interact with professional instructors taken from directly from The Round Barn Theatre's core company!

Friendships are made while talent is developed and honed.
