SPEND YOUR SUMMER LAUGHING AND BRINGING LAUGHTER

Comedy from the heart. Teaching collaboration, inspiration, gratitude and fun in all that we do. 

Sure, "funny" has a lot to do with comedy. But our years of experience have taught us that it is so much more than that. In our summer camps, kids of all ages learn how to work and play together, creating amazing moments and unforgettable performances as a team. We focus on the basic skills of improv: teamwork, trust, accepting, and a "Yes, and.." attitude. You'll see self-confidence soar as they build skills that will help them succeed on stage and well beyond.

 

CSz Comedy Camps are backed by our 21 years in Richmond, performing ComedySportz® and teaching improv in schools, churches, and businesses.

We're a proud part of the international CSz Worldwide network of training centers.
