Field Trips

high school actors stop on tour to look at the cows

Go to plays at local theatres along with other campers and TPE staff.  Ride in a purple bus (or meet us at the venue).  We offer field trips throughout the year, including our annual trip to the Maryland Renaissance Festival.  Yes, parents can sign up for field trips as well!

Maryland Renaissance Festival

Travel back in time, immersing yourself in Renaissance street performances, food, songs and fun!  Our annual field trip will take in high-quality street performance, beautiful handicrafts, and of course, cheesecake on a stick.
