Event Description

Camp for Ages 9-17
Every Day from 9am-4:30pm

Let your young improviser’s imagination run wild in a week-long exploration of the art of comedy. Perfect for everyone from the aspiring actor, to the class clown, to the thoughtful observer — Summer Comedy Camp is open to all personalities and experience levels! Improvisation isn’t just for future comedians.

Participants will develop important skills both on and off the stage, including listening, supporting, give and take, saying “yes, and” to new ideas — all in a fun, welcoming environment. All through the lens of improv, your student will gain confidence in navigating challenges, public speaking, critical thinking, and teamwork.

In addition to learning the building blocks of improv from the best in the biz, this summer camp will also give students a little taste of a variety of comedic forms. Scripted acting, sketch writing, and more!

Price: $600 ($550 if you sign up before May 31)
Age Limit: 9-17 yrs old
(students will be in smaller groups by age during the camp) 

Pick Up/ Drop Off
All classes will take place at Arcade Comedy Theater at 943 Liberty Ave. An attendant at the main box office will be there to sign your child in and out of each class. All campers must be picked up by a parent or legal guardian. If your camper is going to be signed out by someone other than their parent/legal guardian (babysitters, nannies, carpools etc) Please provide their full names and addresses in an email to the instructor. They will be asked to provide valid ID matching the information provided via email/handwritten note from the camper's parent/ legal guardian. In the case of high school-aged campers, they may provide their own transportation, sign themselves in and out of camp with permission given by parent/ legal guardian.

What to Bring to Camp:
We recommend that everyone “dresses to improvise” everyday. We will be running, jumping, groovin’ and movin’ so campers should wear whatever allows them to be active.

Campers should also bring:

  • Water bottle

  • Notebook and pen

  • A lunch

  • A positive attitude

  • Their imagination

During the day we will break for lunch brought from home. Please do not bring any peanuts or peanut products in your lunch. If your child has any allergies or special needs please email the instructor. We will do our best to accommodate your child’s needs and make sure everyone has an educational, safe, and fun time at Summer Comedy Camp!

An Emergency Information Contact Form and other important safety information will be emailed to parents prior to the workshop. Any questions in advance of signing up can be sent to *Proof of Pennsylvania child abuse clearances and Act 114 criminal history clearances for instructors and teaching assistants available upon request.
