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.

The Jungle Book is a collection of stories by English Nobel laureate Rudyard Kipling. The stories were first published in magazines in 1893-94. The original publications contain illustrations, some by Rudyard's father, John Lockwood Kipling. Kipling was born in India and spent the first six years of his childhood there. After about ten years in England, he went back to India and worked there for about six-and-half years. These stories were written when Kipling lived in Vermont.
Amish Acres Acting Camps are possible in part by the generous support of financial scholarships from Amish Acres, Gordon and Marie Moore, McCormick Motors, Nappanee, Richard and Susan Pletcher, and the Zeta Nu Chapter of Kappa Kappa Kappa, philanthropic sorority, Indiana.
