William Shakespeare is known for his great masterpieces of verse, plays and sonnets. Georgia Shakespeare hosts a summer camp to teach kids about the man and his work.

Camp Shakespeare is a summer camp hosted by Georgia Shakespeare on the Oglethorpe University campus.  Among lessons on sword play and acting, they also learn something unique about the author and playwright’s command over the English language, Shakespearean insults. 

  WABE’s David Barasoain decided to visit the kids at Camp Shakespeare to see and experience these insults first hand.
