Q: Describe a typical day in your camp or program.
A: At camp we do an hour of improv, an hour of sketch comedy, 3 times a week where we pull sketches from various shows to work with the kids in comedic acting and 2 hours a day to develop their own personal stand- up routines.
Q: What type of teenager participates in your camp or program? A: Most of our kids are funny but need to learn to channel it. They are writers who want to learn to write comedy. They are not the most popular kids. They are a bit nerdy and are looking for other kids like them.
