    Shakespeare Camps will be held outdoors and available indoor space is extremely limited. If heat advisory and/or AQI reach unhealthy levels, camp will be canceled and those camp days prorated and fully refunded.

    Campers study Shakespeare's theatre in a fun and  supportive atmosphere. Camps are taught by theatre practitioners who lead interactive classes in Shakespeare's poetry, clowning traditions, and stage combat. The camp culminates in an abridged Shakespeare play for family and friends. Experience welcome but not required to get into the act and have fun with your friends this summer!
