Held at CSF’s facilities on the CU-Boulder campus, CSF offers two camp programs. Camp Shakespeare, our popular summer program for ages 10-18, focuses on the skills needed for acting Shakespeare. Students prepare shortened versions of Shakespeare's plays and perform them on the Mary Rippon Outdoor Theatre. Shakespeare's Sprites is a week-long program for ages 6 to 9, in which campers discover the joy of Shakespeare through games, improvisation and scene work.

Experience Shakespeare through performances, workshops and classroom visits. A combination of live performance and hands-on workshops is an excellent way to introduce your students to the major ideas behind Shakespeare's language and to excite them about the Bard. CSF Education offers performances, workshops and lectures to schools in Colorado. CSF's popular Shakespeare & Violence Prevention program, a collaboration with the Center for the Study and Prevention of Violence, uses Shakespeare's plays to address bullying, the cycle of violence, and school climate. Don't miss this innovative combination of theatre and violence prevention.
