It's just not. There are no canoes. There are no cabins. We don't have American Indian names (unless you were given one at birth). We have showers. People cook for us. We might make something out of macaroni, but it's doubtful.
Who can come: students who have completed their freshman year of high school, up through students who have completed a year of college. (We also welcome adults who work with those students!)
Here's what we are: the best camp for improv training if you're a high school student or an educator who works with theatre students. You're going to laugh a lot. Not a little -- a lot. You'll walk away with skills that will benefit you your entire life: trust, confidence, creative problem solving, teamwork, focus and the ability to turn challenges into gold. Simply, improv skills are essential for any actor, but also for anyone who wants to succeed.
All workshops are taught by professionals from ComedySportz Los Angeles, the longest running show in the city. Evenings are filled with different live shows every night, and there's plenty of time for swimming, soccer, softball, dodgeball, classic comedy films, and maybe even macaroni art.
Past workshops have included: improv games, dramatic improv, musical improv, styles and genres, Shakespearean improv, stage combat, commercial auditioning, puppeteering and more!
Be sure to check out the scholarships available which can lower your fee as much as $100. You can also get discounts for early registration and/or for bringing along some friends from your school. Educators willing to assist our counselors can also attend at a lower rate.
It's the opportunity of a lifetime. Don't miss out. We might make macaroni hats...
