IMPROVCAMP is unlike any other camp out there—it’s an exciting experience for high school students who love the art of improvisational theatre, and, thanks to our Leadership Program, it’s also a place for recent grads to expand their skills. At the weeklong summer camp held at Camp Fircom (Gambier Island BC) young improvisers receive comprehensive instruction in improvisational theatre by professionals from all over North America. Campers will be organized into ensembles that will travel from workshop to workshop, gaining skills and learning about their craft. There are performances each night, and many summer camp favourites like canoeing and hiking—a great way to meet other young improvisers from across Canada. Find out why our campers call this the “BEST CAMP EVER!”

IMPROVCAMP 2018 will be held August 20-27 at Camp Fircom, Gambier Island BC.

For over a decade the Improvcamp has created exciting, life-changing programming through the use of improvisation. Similar to the Canadian Improv Games, the Improvcamp uses improv as a learning tool to foster skills like Positivity, Leadership, Commitment and Teamwork, the IMPROVCAMP was created as an opportunity to further promote the lifelong skills and artistic expression within young improvisors. Not surprisingly, it has done so—and then some!

Camper Program:

The camper program is the ultimate combination of outdoor activities and the best improvisational training Canada has to offer. Each day at IMPROVCAMP, campers take intensive workshops from some of the most talented instructors from across Canada and beyond, which cover all facets of improvisational theatre. They also participate in camp-wide games, swim, lounge at the beach and work together on performance projects. At night, IMPROVCAMP becomes a venue for improv theatre and entertainment. Each evening there are performances by the campers, as well as campfires, beach party extravaganzas, and numerous other surprises. And dance parties. So many dance parties. This program is for improvisers of all skill and experience levels.

Leadership Program:

The leadership program is designed for young people who are ready to take the next step, both as improvisers and youth leaders. The members of the leadership program take workshops to grow their improvisation skill set, but they also take seminars designed to enhance their abilities as leaders and mentors of youth. This program is both challenging and rewarding, and vital for those improvisers who are interested in assisting in the growth of the next generation. Acceptance is by application only.
