Registration open now for all 2023 summer camps!

The Colorado Shakespeare Festival offers summer camps for kids and teens (ages 6 to 18) on CU Boulder’s campus. Students will rehearse, stage, and perform a shortened Shakespeare play (scenes for Sprites). Camp Shakespeare and Shakespeare's Sprites are a fabulous way for kids and teens to explore theatre and Shakespeare in a creative and supportive environment.

All summer 2023 programs will adhere to all campus and county COVID safety guidelines. Please note that the majority of camp sessions will be held indoors, though we may occasionally hold activities outdoors; campers should bring plenty of water and sunscreen.

Shakespeare's Sprites (ages 6 to 9)

Shakespeare’s Sprites is a playful introduction to the Bard for ages 6-9. Discover the fun of Shakespeare through pool-noodle fights, silly insults, Renaissance songs and lively scene work. Each week culminates in a final showing for family and friends. This program is the perfect way to instill a love of language and theatre in your child. Students enrolled in Shakespeare’s Sprites should have basic reading skills.
