The Second City Comedy Camp

Campers exercise their sense of play through improv games and exercises that are the foundation of The Second City’s unique brand of comedy. Our teachers will help enhance their ability to communicate with others and develop confidence in their own creativity while working as part of an ensemble.


Our comedy camps attract students from all over the world to learn improv, make friends, and perform on our stage! No previous experience is needed. Camps end with a show where the students show off what they’ve learned!


SUBJECTS Depending on which camp your child takes, they will learn between 2-6 of the bellow subjects:


• Improv: Explore the fundamentals of improv. Develop skills like creative thinking, self-confidence, listening, brainstorming, team building, empathy, and communication, while having loads of fun and laughs.


• Musical Improv: Learn to spontaneously put words to music.


• Sketch Comedy: Learn the basics of sketch comedy scenes, the building blocks of any Second City show. Study classic Second City scenes, use improv to develop scenes, and create original sketches.


• Stand-Up: Students develop their personal style as a stand-up comedian or storyteller as we focus on developing material, stage presence, and delivery.


• Clowning & Physical Comedy: Clowning is 50% physicality, 50% silliness, and 100% fun. Students will learn about slapstick comedy and how to theatrically control their gestures.
