Youth Summer Camps
8-10, 11-15 yrs.
A week-long summer camp with a focus on improv. Campers will learn the basics of improv: listening, building ideas as a group, supporting each other, and exploring the strange and amazing things our minds can create. At the end of a week, the campers will perform a small show for all the parents and friends. Camp sessions are one week long starting on Monday and ending with the show on Friday. We offer both full day and half day options.
Interested in more than one session? Contact us for a discount!
Full day - Monday through Friday, 9:00am to 3:00pm, $450
Half day - Monday through Friday, 9:00am to 12:00pm, $225
