American Shakespeare Center Theatre Camp
20 S. New Street, Fourth Floor
Staunton, VA
24401

Twice every summer, The ASC Theatre Camp (ASCTC) plunges 39 high-school students into three weeks of intensive, immersive, incomparable programming in the Shakespearean Shangri-La of Staunton, Virginia – home of the American Shakespeare Center and the world’s only recreation of the Blackfriars Playhouse, Shakespeare’s indoor theatre.

At ASCTC, we transport students out of their normal lives and beyond their comfort zone. We challenge them to explore the limits of their infinite potential in a safe, stable, supportive environment, and they emerge not only with finer control over their craft and better preparation for college, but also with more confidence, more capability, and more capacity for growth and change.

ASCTC participants preview the college experience by living and working on the residential campus at Mary Baldwin University. They live in dorms, work in university classrooms and performance spaces, and eat in the dining hall. They spend their days rehearsing with professional directors, training with professional actors, and learning from professional academics: ASC actors, MBU graduate-level faculty, preeminent scholars, and (of course) each other. They spend their evenings at the Blackfriars Playhouse, spellbound by Shakespeare’s stagecraft.

Students can enroll in the college credit companion course and earn three college credits from Mary Baldwin University, transferable to other institutions. They can elect to stay for an extended week of internship experience, getting hands-on practice working with a professional theatre company. But all work and no play makes camp a dull sport – even when working feels like playing. Mornings off bring sleeping in and brunching at the local Farmer’s market. Days off bring trips to the lake, water balloon fights, dance parties, and well-earned opportunities to luxuriate in languorous laziness.

Three weeks of this chimeric, collaborative creativity culminates in the Final Performance Festival, where campers mount their final productions (for a packed house) on the Blackfriars Playhouse stage.

Adventures on the Parkway:

BRCM Adventure on the Parkway is a day camp for children ages 5-8 that is located on the historic and beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway. The camp provides an exciting, fun, and enriching outdoor experience to create lifelong outdoor lovers.

BRCM Adventure on the Parkway provides a mix of outdoor exploring and hiking, crafts and games, learning about animal and plant life, experiencing the history and culture of the parkway through old fashioned toys, games, and music with live musicians, and even working on the farm. Each day is filled with new experiences and opportunities to form a deeper understanding of and connection with nature while creating lasting camp memories and friendships.

Little GROWers:

Join us for an exciting week of summer camp at the Project GROWS farm as we experience the journey of a vegetable from farm to table! Little GROWers will work together to make delicious snacks from vegetables they harvest themselves, taste-test a variety of produce, and spend time tending the garden. We’ll also go on scavenger hunts and play games to explore the many colors of the farm. Learn about our amazing pollinator friends like bees that make farming possible, the mystery of soil and compost, and the benefits of farm animals like chickens. With help from camp staff, Little GROWers will complete a Five Day Challenge to prepare and eat a healthy snack every day themselves. Campers will leave with recipes, gardening and food preparation skills, and an appreciation of where our food comes from!
