 C) 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.

 D) 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! 

 E) 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.
