School is out and Shakespeare is in. Camp Shakespeare is designed to combine the arts with the best parts of the summer camp experience like field trips, traditional camp songs and slogans, scavenger hunts and the opportunity to make lifelong friends!

Our programs are comprised of high quality theatre instruction combined with competitions, games, and activities designed to excite our campers. This summer will include weekly field trips and will culminate in an invited performance for family and friends showcasing what our campers have been working on during their session.

Philosophy: To engage our campers in the arts, nurturing creativity, and building self-confidence in all aspects of their lives. Our hope is to instill a love of the arts in our campers, influencing future endeavors into any avenue of the arts.
