Shakespeare Summer Camp returns to Grand Valley

Posted on

Grand Valley Shakespeare Festival will once again offer two sessions of “Will Power,” its summer education program for children.

The day camp will focus on developing creativity through the process of drama, using Shakespeare’s works to teach theatre concepts and storytelling, while providing a fun environment with other young people. All sessions will be held at Grand Valley’s Performing Arts Center, Allendale Campus.
 
Session 1, Double Trouble in “A Comedy of Errors,” runs July 8-12, while Session 2, Shipwrecked on a Magic Island! in “The Tempest,” runs July 15-19. Campers are registered by age group, with Buckingham Groups meeting from 9 a.m.-noon, for students entering grades 1-3, and Westminster Groups at 1-4 p.m. for students entering grades 4-6.

Registration is $100 per camper, with discounts for multiple children or attendance at both sessions. Price includes class fees, materials and a t-shirt. Scholarship opportunities are available. For more information and registration, visit www.gvsu.edu/shakes, or email libmank@gvsu.edu.
