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.
In 2020, Camp Will was be presented on Zoom, the video conferencing platform.
Each daily session begins with theater and improv games. Groups will then be split by age and experience. The younger students will work independently in separate ensembles to approach Shakespeare’s cannon through rhythm, playful language exercises, and Story Drama. Older students will work more intensely on vocal and physical techniques that enrich the meaning of Shakespeare’s text. All sessions are held in the theater at Björklunden, and each session is organized and taught by professional actors from within Door Shakespeare’s company. The camp culminates with students sharing their work in a “Green share” performance of scenes and monologues directed by professional actors before Door Shakespeare’s Friday night main stage performance.
Tuition: $125 for the first student in the family and $100 for each additional student in the same family. Tuition discount also available for campers registering for multiple sessions.

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.
Door Shakespeare’s Camp Will is proudly sponsored by the Door County Medical Center, and Maryellen Riley.
You can contribute, too! Call 920.854.7111.
