Was your child the one on family vacations in Jamestown completely in awe of the history before them? If so, look no further than the Pre-Collegiate Summer Program in Early American History at William and Mary. While involved in the program, students will be introduced to a fast-paced, in-depth course that focuses on the many different ways the past can be studied. The highlight of the program is that the majority of it takes place on historic sites in the Chesapeake region.
Does your child have a love of all things acting? If so, then it’s time to enroll your child in the Virginia Shakespeare Festival one-week day camps. There will be two of these camps, both of which will focus on Shakespearean acting methods. Camp directors and various members of the VSF Acting Company will instruct campers on everything from Shakespeare’s language and stage combat to improvisation and clowning. The camp will conclude with campers exhibiting their newly acquired acting skills in an abridged performance of “All’s Well That Ends Well.” -Rebecca Norris
