Camp Shakespeare

8 to 14 years old

July 14 – 25 and July 28**
Mon – Fri. 9:30am to 2:30pm
Location: Los Gatos Shakespeare Stage in Oak Meadow Park
Fee: $300

This unique camp experience is for kids aged 8-14 who want to discover theatre through the works of one of the greatest writers in the English language. Students learn what it was like in William Shakespeare’s time–as an actor, as a kid, and in everyday life. They use Shakespeare’s plays and characters as a springboard into the world of acting. Students gain confidence, learn to express themselves, and experience working as a team through dramatic games, creative movement, voice exercises, and classical scenework. The camp culminates with a performance of a medley of Shakespeare scenes performed by the students on the festival stage in Oak Meadow Park.

**Camp Shakespeare performance will be held on Monday, July 28th at 7pm

Thank you Kiwanis Club of Los Gatos for sponsoring Camp Shakes since 2007!

Midsummer Faerie Camp

Young girls learn to draw upon the magic within themselves and spread beauty and kindness to others. Working with Faerie Mentors, they create costumes and transform the camp area into a fanciful glen. The girls sing, compose poetry, keep journals and role play to develop self-esteem, confidence and compassion. Camp concludes with a Faerie Tea prepared by our faeries, who attend in costume and recite poems they have created during the week.
