Peter Gould’s Shakespeare camp “Get Thee to the Funnery” will be held this summer outdoors under the big tent. As usual, the season is the first two weeks of August for this physically- and mentally-demanding day camp.

Camp begins on Monday morning on August 2 and will top off with at least one final public-but-safely-spaced performance in the late afternoon of Friday, August 13.

This will be the 24th summer session of the Funnery camp which features team-building and leadership training for each camper.

The study of this summer’s play “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” will focus on Shakespeare and climate change, a crisis that Vermont Humanities calls “an escalating, perhaps uncontrollable catastrophe in the making.” For camp information contact gettheetothefunnery.org, at 802-257-4844, or via email petergouldvt@gmail.com.
