2-day mini-camps exploring the world of improv comedy
Saturday and Sunday
Sign up your teen for our July 2022 camp.
Participant Information Form
Please fill out one form per child attending.
Arcade’s two-day afternoon camp gives teens the chance to explore the art of improv comedy, with lessons on building a story collaboratively, developing an original voice, and improving confidence and stage presence. This weekend camp welcomes teens of all experience levels and personality types to bring their imaginations to our stage as our instructors guide them through improv games and exercises that practice listening skills, creativity, teamwork, and confidence.
The weekend concludes with a class performance which students’ family are welcome to attend. The performance will also be recorded and shared as a private YouTube link for family who can’t enjoy the show in-person.
Registration fee: $125 per child
Class size: max 10 children
