Camp Shakespeare

Camp Shakespeare is an 18-year-old education program run by the Colorado Shakespeare Festival. Each summer, kids ages 10-18 come to CU-Boulder’s campus to study Shakespeare with CSF professionals. Working in small groups, these students learn about Shakespeare by rehearsing, staging, and performing a shortened play on the Outdoor Mary Rippon Stage. Camp Shakespeare is a fabulous way for kids and teens to explore theater and Shakespeare in a creative and supportive environment.

In addition to acting training, students participate in master classes with special guests from the CSF company. Campers also work with a stage combat professional to learn the safe way to fight onstage. Tuition includes one ticket to attend a CSF production.

CSF will offer two sessions of Camp Shakespeare in the summer of 2016. Campers may register for Session One (May 31-June 27), Session Two (July 18-August 5) or both.  


Each session of Camp Shakespeare will culminate in free public performances on the Mary Rippon Outdoor Theatre (Session One: Monday, June 27; Session Two: Friday, August 5)


Cost: $850 (before April 1, 2016)

Sign up for both sessions and receive $50 off second session. Sign up siblings and receive $50 off second child’s tuition.
