Think your tike would like to ham it up as Hamlet? Here are some summer acting camps--both Shakespeare and non-Shakespeare related--being offered this summer.

The Idaho Shakespeare Festival is offering a smattering of kids' acting camps, divided into two sessions: Session One in June, and Session Two in July and August. Some highlights include Shakespeare and Me!, for kids ages 3-5, which teaches tiny tots lines from some of the Bard's best-known scenes; Shakespeare Shenanigans, for kids ages 6-8, which looks into wacky characters from Shakespeare's most popular plays; and Short Shakespeare, where kids ages 9-11 create a shortened, original version of a selected Shakespeare work.

The camp runs from Monday, July 29-Friday, Aug. 2, and teaches "blocking, drama, voice projection, song, dance, movement and how an actor connects emotionally with an audience."

The first camp is for ages 7-12 and takes place Monday, June 17-Friday, June 21; the second camp is for ages 3-6 and takes place Monday, June 24-Friday, June 28. For more info, visit
