Our Line-Up of Comedy Programs

StandUP Comedy Camp for ages 11-14 and ages 15-17 – our original camp still going strong! This is the basic starting place. Help your child uncover their unique voice with this online, five-day stand-up comedy camp! This program focuses on exploring self-expression through fun activities, exercises and guidance from our trained coaches to help each camper develop and perform their very first stand-up comedy routine. The program culminates in an online show hosted by the coaches where our campers make their stand-up comedy debut!

Improv Comedy Camp – for a group of kids to play together while learning improv for ages 11-17
This energetic, collaborative and fun camp teaches important improv philosophies that translate into positive life skills, such as the “Yes And” approach. During this five-day online program, campers will have opportunities to perform in many different short-form improv scenes, and develop their unique sense of humour in a nurturing and collaborative environment. The camp culminates in a class show where students perform a selection of improv games for their friends and family!

Sketch Comedy Camp – write and perform comedy for a small group of kids from ages 11-17
For the budding writer, our five day Sketch Comedy Camp walks campers through the process of creating their own sketch scenes. Fun and engaging activities will help our campers discover how to structure sketches, populate them with memorable characters, and explore topics that are relevant to their interests and comedic voice. The camp culminates in a showcase where campers perform their sketch creations for friends and family!

Meme Comedy Camp – Internet memes have helped us connect with each other, express ourselves, and get through a global pandemic. They’re also hilarious. This course explores what exactly memes are, beyond a picture on a screen, what makes them work & how they spread. We use classic meme templates to explain joke-writing principles and formulas that can be used in all areas of comedy writing. By the end of the week, students will be able to create and share their own memes with each other and the world.

Puppet Camp: Make a Puppet Show – For kids ages 6 – 10 and for teens ages 13 to 18. A working simple puppet show, basic writing, basic design skills, learn to work constructively with others in a creative environment.
