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 23 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.

LEADERS & TEAMS

This introductory improv camp is all about how we play together as a team to make something magical for everyone! While laughing and playing games, kids will learn all about compassion and empathy through the art of improv and play. Great for kids that are sensitive, bullied, or even those who could benefit from understanding this perspective, AND those who totally get it and want to do all they can to be the best supporter, leader or ally.

FOR YOUTH AGES 10-18

THE ADVENTURES CONTINUE...

BEYOND THE GAMES

A lot of the time in our camps is spent playing games very much like what you might see in our popular ComedySportz matches. This is called "short form" improv, and is super fun! BUT.... what if you wanted more time to explore and discover? This camp adventure helps the older youth do just that with "long form" improv. They'll learn formats and theater styles where working together as a team creates longer and more intricate stories! Who knows where your imagination can take you?
