High School/College Summer Camp 2017…a sleepover camp for teens who have finished their freshman year of high school, up thru those who are between high school and college.
Our Sleepover Camp’s location for 2017 is CSUN!
We’re tickled to death to be returning to Cal State Northridge! The campus is attractive, the living quarters are spacious, there’s air conditioning everywhere (except outdoors), there are two swimming pools, the food is super…what’s not to like?
This isn’t your ordinary camp.
It’s just not. There are no canoes. There are no cabins. We don’t have American Indian names (unless you were given one at birth). We have showers. People cook for us. We might make something out of macaroni, but it’s doubtful.
Who can come: students who have completed their freshman year of high school, up through students who have completed their senior year. (We also welcome adults who work with those students!) All levels of experience are welcome–from zero to lots. Doesn’t matter whether you’re on a ComedySportz High School League® team or not.
Here’s what we are: the best camp for improv training if you’re a high school student or an educator who works with theatre students. You’re going to laugh a lot. Not a little — a lot. You’ll walk away with skills that will benefit you your entire life: trust, confidence, creative problem solving, teamwork, focus and the ability to turn challenges into gold. Simply, improv skills are essential for any actor, but also for anyone who wants to succeed.
All workshops are taught by professionals from ComedySportz Los Angeles, the longest running show in the city. Evenings are filled with different live shows every night, and there’s plenty of time for swimming, soccer, softball, dodgeball, classic comedy films, and maybe even macaroni art. (Those same professionals make up the camp staff, and our ratio of counselors to campers is typically 1 to 6 or better.)
Past workshops have included: improv games, dramatic improv, musical improv, Shakespearean improv, stage combat, writing comedy for late night talk shows, writing comedy for the Web, commercial auditioning, puppeteering and more!
