Camp Shakespeare 2021
June 21 - August 27$375
Every summer, Shakespeare Theatre Company gives students between the ages of 7 and 18 the chance to dive into the world of one of the most celebrated playwrights in history: William Shakespeare. For summer 2021, our popular in-person camps are returning to Washington, D.C., and Virginia. Virtual Camp Shakespeare sessions are also available for each age group.
We offer one-week sessions for Poppets (ages 7–8) and two-week camps for Groundlings (ages 9–11), Young Players (ages 12–14), and King’s Company (ages 15–18). For returning Young Players and King’s Company, we offer a three-week Intensive. Our age groups are based on the optimum peer groups for creating positive, collaborative ensembles.
At Camp Shakespeare, students will:
Transform into Shakespeare’s characters through voice, movement, and imagination
Unravel Shakespeare’s plays with text analysis
Develop fundamental acting skills
Learn the basics of stage combat
Perform for friends and family onstage at Shakespeare Theatre Company
