How fun does a Comedy Camp sound? Spend part of your summer at The Second City in our improv and comedy writing camps. 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 work with these young improvisers to help enhance their ability to communicate with others and develop confidence in their own creativity while working as part of an ensemble.
Kids & Teen students can now join us for camps led by the alumni of the Harold Ramis Film School, the only film school in the world focused entirely on comedy! Students ages 11-19 collaborate on creating short films and seeing their completed works on screen.
Summer camps are one or two weeks long with classes Monday through Friday each week. At the end of two-week camps, campers present a show for their family and friends on one of the Second City stages. Two-week campers are also treated to a special performance by The Second City National Touring Company and an end-of-camp pizza party.
