Do you love improv so much you want to do it all day long? Have you ever wanted to try improv, but didn’t want to commit to a whole session of classes? Have you watched improv showcases and thought to yourself, “whoa… that looks like fun!”??? 

If you feel like any of these apply to you, then come to CAMP IMPROV! This camp will be an awesome opportunity for improvisers of all experience levels, and will consist of a variety of games/exercises to hone your skills. In addition to learning lots of great improv, we’ll have a devotion time each day; learning about and discussing a Biblical truth.  We’re going to have tons of fun!
