High School/College Summer Camp 2020
This year, camp joins the ComedySportz World Championship!
Although Covid-19 means we can’t stay together at Cal State Northridge this summer, we’re going to say “yes” to our situation and make it awesome. Just like good improvisers are supposed to do.
This isn’t your ordinary camp.
It’s just not. There are no canoes. There are no cabins. But it’s so much fun!
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.
And here’s what’s SUPER COOL about this year. Our camp coincides with the ComedySportz World Championship! You’ll get to see the entire championship, with teams from 30 cities across the United States and England. There are even special matches for LGBTQ+ and POC. Plus, workshops will be taught by amazing improv professionals from ComedySportz teams across the United States. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!
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, and more! We’re just going to adapt it to Zoom.
