  • Showcase for family & friends on Friday, June 8 at 5 p.m.
  • REGISTER HERE

Our day campers will explore the basic concepts of improvisation in a warm, safe and supportive environment. Improv games and activities will grow self-confidence and enable campers to explore creativity individually, and, as a team. Campers will experience:

  • Being — and reacting — in the moment.
  • Accepting and building on gifts from fellow campers.
  • Embracing – and using – failure.
  • Co-creating with others (listening, communicating, giving & taking focus).
  • Thriving in an unscripted environment.

 

TEEN (high school students)

  • July 23-27
  • 1 to 5 p.m.
  • Showcase for family & friends on Friday, July 27 at 5 p.m.
  • REGISTER HERE

Our teen campers will stretch both their bodies and minds by exploring improv theatre exercises. And, while being playfully engaged, campers will also be improving their listening, collaboration and creative thinking skills. Campers will want a BIG dose of creative thinking, as after touching both long and short form improv, they’ll create their own show and then present it on the Limelight stage at the end of camp week.
