2021 Summer Schedule

Given the uncertainty of the pandemic, plans may change. We will conduct our camps in accordance will all County rules and regulations. In 2020, we successfully held In-Person Summer Camps for ages 8 to 12, in accordance with a detailed Site-Specific Protection Plan (SPP) to keep campers and staff safe.  In expectation of similar restrictions for 2021, camps will be limited to no more than 12 campers each, and be a minimum of 3 weeks. Parents will not be allowed to attend final presentations, which will be shared through Zoom.

We encourage you to read our SPP and let us know if you have any questions.  And we encourage you to sign up for these camps as soon as possible, since space is limited.

Campers will enjoy:
   • Physical games and activities
   • Learning about and performing Shakespeare
   • Interacting safely with peers
   • Skilled and caring Teaching Artists
