Bay Area Shakespeare Camp

Discover, Play & Act Shakespeare’s Works!

Shakespeare Campers benefit from an atmosphere of creativity, heightened literacy, and self-expression. Camps are designed to welcome those new to the stage as well as experienced performers.

Our camps feature ample opportunities for swordplay and stage combat, theatre games, and costume and set designing. Campers also learn about Shakespeare’s poetic language and develop the skills to understand and perform it! Each camp finishes with an abridged Shakespeare play, staged and acted by campers for an audience of family and friends. This summer campers ages 7-13 will stage performances of “The Witches Brew”, “Macbeth”, and “The Merry Wives of Windsor”. Campers ages 12-18 will perform in “King Lear”. Scripts, materials and supplies are all included.

Camps are conveniently located in Oakland, Berkeley, San Francisco, the Peninsula, and the South Bay and are led by trained theater professionals. They meet for 2-weeks, weekdays, 9am-3pm with aftercare available until 5:30. Early drop-off starts at 8:30 am. Need-based scholarship assistance is available.

Join us for our 28th season to find out what keeps Shakespeare Campers returning year after year!
