In this half-day camp for kids aged 6-12, discover the beauty and fun of the medieval era! Enjoy hands-on crafts, music, stories, and skits from an age of myth and legend, kings and queens, calligraphy and Middle English.

The workshop is taught by SHAK's director Shulamit Kleinerman with longtime teaching collaborator, craftsman, and multi-instrumentalist Jacob Breedlove. Guest soprano Linda Strandberg visits to lead some singing. With a maximum of 12 kids in SHAK's signature "one-room schoolhouse" atmosphere, participants of mixed ages thrive together in exploring their interests and discovering new things. No special background is required.

All participants are all invited to come onstage with Shula, Jacob, and Linda to demonstrate material from the class as part of Saturday's family concert of medieval music! Free admission for one parent is included with class registration.

SHAK is proud to offer need-based financial aid. Please inquire!
