Spring Break Comedy Camp

Join us for our first full Spring Break Comedy Day Camp. Campers ages 7-17 will daily participate. Let’s look at what a week of camp looks like.

Monday April 13

9:30am camp starts. We will have an adult on campus by 8:45am for early drop offs. After a brief morning meeting, welcoming all to camp, we warm up. Playing a series of “games” we develop team and individual skills in improv comedy. Next we play a technique building game on how to start a scene and develop story with WHO (characters, relationship) WHERE (setting) and WHAT (plot, action, arc). We intro duce a few performance games that could be played during the Friday show. In addition to learning Improvisation and Performance skills, campers develop self confidence, public speaking, and creative/critical thinking skills. We play these same games in corporate events teaching team building, leadership, sales and customer service.

11:30 Brainstorming exercise. Before lunch we discuss ideas for possible stand up comedy routines. We start simply by listing things we have experienced and observed at school, home, on vacation and in public spaces, recording this list in our journal.

Lunch is served

Open Mic- each student will take their list, one at a time, and just share some of the items. Some students on might simply share the list. Others might start telling us the stories. Each comic just talks for about 2 minutes. After talking on stage, campers write about the experience in their journals. What connected, what hot a laugh, what seemed to misfire. All this organizing our thoughts for the next time we get on stage.

1pm Afternoon Improv Session – after a brief refocusing warm up game, we focus on playing one or two performance games.

2:45 Snacks

3pm showtime – campers will get to watch a public performance of EIGHT IS NEVER ENOUGH Improv Comedy, featuring camp counselors and teachers.

Parents and siblings are invited to join the campers to watch the show. There is a one beverage minimum (included for campers) but the $25 tickets are on us.

4:15 dismissal after the show, but we will have adult supervision until 5:15 as needed for late pick ups.

FALL CLASSES START THIS WEEKEND Comedy 4 Kids Teens NYC Long Island

Improv and Stand-Up Comedy helps students discover their best selves building self confidence, creative writing, critical thinking and public speaking. We offer weekly classes Winter, Spring and Fall, plus Summer Camps. We also have teachers at schools, camps and community centers on weekends and after school. Each session starts with Improvisation, playing games that are a ton of fun while teaching valuable life skills. These are the same games we play with corporate groups to develop better leaders, team building, sales, service etc. For our public sessions we include Stand-Up Comedy, taking stories of experience and observation, then crafting original comedy routines. Each session ends a performance showcase of original and improvised comedy skits. The classes and workshops integrate perfectly with cultural arts, language arts and character building/guidance programming.
