Dates: June 26-30
The Fairies need our help in restoring their forest dwellings, and bringing in the magic of Shakespeare to begin our summer theatre. You will make fairy crafts, learn the special fairy songs, dances, and words from Shakespeare's plays. This week long intensive is for believers of fairy magic, and lovers of forest discoveries.
We have a 15 student limit

Advice to parents: be sure that your child is truly interested in the activities that we are offering. This is a gentle, sweet camp. We love taking the days slowly with time to watch for tree frogs, and gathering leaves and twigs to create a fairy house. If your child is seeking a faster-paced day, please consider one of the Shakespeare Intensives we offer for starting for 8-year-olds with The Apprentices.
Teaching Staff: Dawn Menola, Sue Rexford, and Lesley Sawhill. All with many years of experience working with and teaching young children. We also have a staff of assistants who will be leading your child to the different activities throughout the day and being their buddy for any special needs that might come up.
