Typical Day at Camp
With direction and coaching from an experienced comedian, kids will learn the basics of improvisation taught the Knuckleball Comedy way, with style, confidence and energy. Along the way, participants will gain not only valuable tools for everyday life, but will also have lots of laughs throughout.
Snack Break: 10:40am-11:00am
Fun With Physicality: 11:00am-12:15pm
We let the kids' imaginations and energy run rampant. Kids will learn how to use their bodies and physicality to create hilariously unique characters which they can use in future improv scenes and beyond, They will also learn the basics of stage combat, but don’t worry, it couldn’t be safer!
Lunch and relax: 12:15pm-1:00pm
All kids should bring their own lunch, water bottle and a snack. Always remember to advise us of any food allergies. After an energy boost and a few minutes to relax our minds and bodies, we get back to more fun.
Writing sketch comedy: 1:00pm-2:15pm
Improv and writing sketch comedy go together like Knuckleball Comedy and fun. We use our knowledge of improv to go over scene structure and how to create story ideas from scratch. We help the kids write their own sketches which they will eventually be able to perform. They’ll love this creative freedom. Writing is fun especially when you’re writing jokes! *Note: The older age group may choose to spend more time with sketch writing.
After a day of high energy games, we cool down with storytelling. Instructors sharpen some of their best stories in front of the kids and then we hand it over to the kids for their best stories. With just a tad bit of structure, we help bring out the best stories the kids have to offer. *Note: For the older group, this section will also include instruction on writing and performing standup comedy for those who want to do so.
For those who choose to stay for after care, we will have even more fun with board games, movies, free time in the park and if the kids ask, even more time for improv!
