About Camp Will…
Camp Will is a weeklong workshop dedicated to the development of communication skills, language, and group social skills through the process of creative play and group scene work. Our goal is to nurture a young person’s ability to voice their opinions, communicate their thoughts, and ultimately, discover their creativity through ensemble work and the poetry of Shakespeare.
Camp Will Staff
Each daily session begins with theater and improv games. Groups are then divided by age and experience. The younger students work independently in separate ensembles to approach Shakespeare’s cannon through rhythm, playful language exercises, and Story Drama. Older students work more intensely on vocal and physical techniques that enrich the meaning of Shakespeare’s text. All sessions are outdoors on the grounds of Door Shakespeare’s Theatre at Björklunden, and each session is taught by professional actors from the Door Shakespeare company. The camp culminates with students sharing their work in a “Green share” performance of scenes and monologues directed by professional actors and presented before Door Shakespeare’s Friday night main stage performance. Camp Registration includes two tickets (one student and one adult) for the mainstage performance, as well as a Door Shakespeare t-shirt.

The Family Fund
The Door Shakespeare Family Fund was initiated four years ago by a board member whose grandchild attended the Door Shakespeare Summer Camp for the first time. She had so much fun that her family decided to ensure many summers to come for children of all income levels. The Door Shakespeare Family Fund provides scholarships to students who otherwise would not be able to attend. Please consider a donation to the Family fund.
You can contribute, too! Call 920.854.7111.
