VIEW CAMP PHOTO

CAMP LOCATION:

Our residential programs are located at the Freedom Center in Leesburg, VA – just 1 hour from DC! The Freedom Center is nestled into the foothills of the Catoctin Mountains on 100-acres of private property.
------
Our Day Camp is held at our Studio in Tysons Corner Center. The mall is metro accessible on the Silver line and offers ample free parking for easy drop off and pick up.

CAMP FACILITIES: Campers live in 1 of 3, comfy, cozy Lodges (with electricity, AC, and bathrooms – flush toilets & showers!). Each Lodge is unique, but all include common areas — inside with big comfy couches for relaxing, memorizing lines and hanging out with your friends; outside with large porches or pavilions offering even more hangout space for each Lodge.

Staff live in private rooms within the Lodges so that they are nearby, attentive, and available, while still allowing campers an appropriate level of privacy.

Adventure surrounds us! There’s a lake (complete with a “blob,” a.k.a. the best thing ever), hiking trails, a challenge course, basketball court, volleyball court, lakeside for s’mores and a meadow for stargazing!

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: At Traveling Players Ensemble’s camp, small troupes of actors are carefully guided by professional theatre artists to perform in outdoor amphitheaters. Our program reflects the origins of theatre, when troupes of actors roamed the ancient and medieval countryside, relying on the barest props and boldest imagination to convey their art. Each session culminates in a fully mounted and designed performance which is open to the public, thereby cultivating stronger, more adaptable and capable artists and individuals.

Traveling Players emphasizes a meaningful engagement with nature. Every week features a campout – when performers learn Leave No Trace camping techniques, to pitch tents and cook outdoors. Our advanced students in the Shakespeare Troupe (grades 9-12) spend their final week camping out close to their performance site—giving them the experience of wandering entertainers who carry their dinner, tent and props in their trusty pack. As artists and backpackers, all of campers learn self-reliance and creative problem solving, and gain an appreciation of challenges and beauty.

Founding Artistic Director Jeanne Harrison has taught for The Folger Shakespeare Library, Catholic University, University of Maryland-Baltimore County, Loyola University (MD), The Chapin School (NYC) and Interlochen Center for the Arts (MI), where she directed the Shakespeare program. Jeanne has worked in camping for 28 years, directed two other camps, is a certified Camp Director (American Camping Association), Wilderness First Responder (SOLO), and an Instructor with the American Red Cross. Jeanne has also served as a judge for the Helen Hayes Awards.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: Traveling Players Ensemble offers need-based scholarships for all programs, with awards up to 100% of tuition, and no yearly or lifetime cap on awards. Please visit our scholarships page for more information.
