Summer Camp for Kids: Camp ComedySportz
Camp ComedySportz is a fun, interactive performing arts camp where your child experiences team building, supporting friends, taking creative risks and building self confidence while they learn how to play the longest running improv comedy show in Philadelphia: ComedySportz.
Camp ComedySportz takes place in our home theater at 2030 Sansom Street in the Rittenhouse section of Philadelphia.
Our camp programming includes the Basics of Improv, how to “Yes, And”, Scene work, creating characters, stage presence and the introduction to ComedySportz-style game play.
Our camp counsellors are all experienced teachers and improv instructors. In addition to enjoying daily games and practices with their group instructor, campers will meet with CSz Philadelphia All Star specialists every day to learn specialized skills such as puppetry and musical improv.
The campers are divided into two groups, or teams, based on the grade they will be entering for the 2018 school year.
- Team Red (4th-6th Graders)
- Team Blue (7th-9th Graders)
At the end of the week, your child will perform in a ComedySportz match, just like the professionals, for friends and family.
