2020 Summer Schedule

In accordance with the County’s newest rules, Marin Shakespeare Company announces the return of In-Person Summer Camps. We’ve created a detailed Site-Specific Protection Plan (SPP) to keep campers and staff safe.  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
