Summer Comedy Camps

Summer Comedy Camps

  • Camps for grades 2-12
  • Weekdays

How fun does a Comedy Camp sound? Spend part of your summer at The Second City learning improv! Campers exercise their sense of play through improv games and exercises that are the foundation of The Second City’s unique brand of comedy. Our teachers will work with these young improvisers to help enhance their ability to communicate with others and develop confidence in their own creativity while working as part of an ensemble.

Improv Games Camp (grades 2-4, 5-8, 9-12)

Think on your feet, be spontaneous and be a team player! Campers play fun improv games (like Whose Line is it Anyway?) to help access creativity, boost self-confidence and develop spontaneity and playfulness. At the end of the week, campers get a chance to show their friends and family just what they’ve learned. Camps run from 9:00am – 4:00pm and are taught by talented, and experienced Second City instructors/actors.

Beginner – no experience is needed for these camps, have a little or a lot of improv experience you’ll have a blast either way! Enroll now!

Characterprov Camp (grades 5-8, 9-12)

Learn how to create large characters like on SCTV, Saturday Night Live and Funny or Die! Campers will explore physicality in silent scenes and play around with different devices for character creation. Campers will have a showcase at the end the week. Bring out your inner Mr. Bean. Camps run from 9:00am – 4:00pm and are taught by talented, and experienced Second City instructors/actors.
