The Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor has announced a range of high-summer theater camps and single-day programs for kids and teens interested in learning or improving performance skills.

"We will only offer what can be done safely," the theater said in its announcement. Precautionary measures include masks, small group sizes, taking the campers' temperatures as they arrive, and social distancing.

"My Life: The Musical!" with Bethany Dellapolla, a professional actor and coach, will run from Aug. 10 to 14, at the Sag Harbor Whaling and Historical Museum, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. each day. It is for kids ages 9 to 12. The cost is $500.

"Scene Study for Kids" with Teresa DeBerry, who has taught acting widely on the East Coast, will also be from Aug. 10 to 14 at the Whaling Museum from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. It is for kids ages 9 to 12 and the cost is $500.

A one-day musical theater audition workshop with Scott Schwartz, the artistic director at Bay Street, is Aug. 10 from 2 to 5 p.m. at the Whaling Museum. Meant for teens ages 13 to 17. The cost is $150. Students will be asked to take two songs, a ballad and an up-tempo piece, to work on alongside professional accompaniment.

A "Mini Mainstage" camp on the works of Shakespeare is from Aug. 17 to Aug. 21 from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Whaling Museum. It is given by Suzanne Clifton Walsh, a veteran youth-theater teacher. For children ages 9 to 12, the cost is $500.
