Our camps are energetic and busy.

We create and collaborate from morning arrival to pick-up time at 4:00. We play all day, with an emphasis on the process of creation.

“This is a unique experience for many children. Being able to be creative and act outside is like becoming the moving illustrations to your favorite children’s book.”
       – Rainbow Squier, TITW Director

Theater in the Woods Camp kids:

  • Develop deeper connection to the woods and the natural world by interacting imaginatively and freely with it
  • Build personal confidence through creating and supporting live theater performances
  • Become a community through shared experiences, challenges and successes.
  • Make great friends and new creative partnerships!

For 28 years Theater in the Woods plays have proven their power to enchant and edify.

Once upon a time (1996 to be exact), children’s book author Frank Asch started writing plays for SolarFest, beginning a much-loved tradition at New England’s premier solar-powered music and arts festival.

We impart theater skills.

Working within the structure of Frank’s and other plays, including ones we create, we impart theater skills: improvisation, voice and speech, movement, writing, editing, staging, music making, and most importantly, ensemble: teamwork. We discover and develop the scenes of the plays in the woods and fields.

Our creative space in the barn

Come enjoy our woods, fields, a renovated barn and large tents as we play; we’ll eat great food and make great new friends!
