For comedians ages 14 to 18. All camps run Monday – Friday and include an optional public performance at 5 the following Sunday.

For ages 14-18

Half Day Option

10 am to 1 pm. Our Half Day Camp is high energy and structured to engage students in the creative process while allowing time to explore and play within the experience. $175.00

Full Day Option

9 am to 4 pm. The Full Day Camp option includes the thematic structure of the week’s focus plus the opportunity to collaborate with other campers and staff on original projects. The first hour of the day is a time to connect with friends, check in on projects and settle into the space. When the week’s focus work ends at 1, we eat lunch and the then turn our attention to creations suitable for the group, expanding on focus projects or just having a good time with friends under the guidance of our staff. It’s ok to add full day later – just let us know and we can make it happen. $295.00
