Campers enrolling in McLaren sessions may enroll for as little as $275, with scripts, costumes, supplies for the performance, and aftercare all included! (Regular camp fee is $670, or $820 with aftercare.)

Students will study Shakespeare's theatre in a fun and  supportive atmosphere. Campers are taught by theatre practitioners who lead interactive classes in Shakespeare's poetry, clowning traditions, and stage combat. The camp culminates in a final performance of an abridged Shakespeare play for family and friends. Experience is welcome but not required to get into the act and have fun with your friends this summer! Visit our FAQ page for additional information.
