Is your child interested in acting, storytelling, improv, or performing arts? Do they love to crack jokes all the time? Send them to a summer comedy camp this year! The Crow’s comedy camp for kids brings 20+ years of comedy experience, mixed with a hefty background in running youth day camps and teaching theater in local schools! The Crow built a stage specifically for your young jokesters! Focusing on stand-up, improv, sketch, storytelling, writing, and stage confidence, your child will have an opportunity to learn joke structure while finding their storytelling perspective and voice through exciting play and activities. Each day will be mixed with team building, performance art, outdoor play, arts and crafts, and community service culminating in a final live performance at the end of each one-week session on Friday night for family and friends at The Crow’s main stage. Meet camp staff from the Crow Comedy program at the March 12 Camp Fair at UCLA.
This looks like a pretty fun program! Campers exercise their sense of play through improv games and exercises that are the foundation of The Second City’s unique brand of comedy. (I remember watching Second City Comedy on TV as a kid...so cool!)
While your child's at camp, the Second City camp counselors and teachers will work with your young "improviser "to help enhance their ability to communicate with others and develop confidence in their own creativity. Campers work as part of an ensemble which improves their teamwork skills. Camps end with a show where the students show off what they’ve learned. Parent will love seeing the result of their campers' experience!
If you're interested in this program, one thing we noticed from their website is that they appear to fill up pretty quickly because their camps attract campers and students from all over the world to learn improv, make friends, and perform on stage. No previous experience is needed. But check them out as soon as you can so you can lock in space for this summer. Let us know how it goes!
