We are holding “In Real Life” camps starting on June 22. As the situation is evolving so quickly this is subject to change. If you have any questions, please email

Currently the state is allowing Day Summer Camps to move forward. We are checking CDC and state guidelines weekly to ensure the safest possible camps – at this time this includes but is not limited to:

-Enacting strict daily cleaning routines

-A daily health check list for staff and students – including temperature checks twice daily

-Masks worn by everyone except at lunch time when 6ft distance will be kept

-Frequent hand washing

-Keeping groups of 10 or fewer students with only 2 adults

-For the annex location, doing check in at your car. For the Hideout having a spread out check ins

-Having the final show over zoom for all family and friends to watch

We understand that child care is not optional for many people and we hope our camps will provide a fun, enriching and safe place for your children to spend their days.

We also have virtual camps!


Summer is just around the corner and that means – SUMMER CAMP!!!!

Our camps are usually 50% or more returners because we have low staff/child ratios, super fun classes, lots of community time to make friends, and one of the coolest locations ever.

In the Hideout Camps kids learn the basics of improv, story telling, and stagecraft mostly through playing games – because you learn better when you are having fun! Everyday we play games, create stories, perform scenes, do crafts and generally have a blast. On the final day we show off our amazing new skills in a performance for friends and family.

Why Improv For Kids?

Advanced Week

This year we are excited to offer an Advanced Camp. This is a camp for kids who have already taken a class or camp and want to push their skills further. We’ll play some of the old favorite games, but we’ll also investigate the next level of improv – strong characters, narrative structure, creating worlds together and how to make improv even more exciting and challenging. This is the perfect class for the kids who want more from their improv experience.

Cancellation Policy

We understand that cancellations are sometimes necessary.

If you need to cancel anytime up until a week before the start of the camp you are registered for we will refund you the price you paid, minus a $50 administration fee.  If you want to transfer to another camp there will be no penalty.

If you cancel with less than one weeks notice, we will refund you half of the price you paid, or allow you to switch to another camp minus a $50 administration fee.

If you don’t show up or cancel after the start of the camp there will be no refund unless you have a doctors note, or other compelling emergency.  In these cases you will only be issued a credit of the amount you paid for another camp, or class at the Hideout Theatre minus a $50 administration fee.

All Cancellations should be in writing – email is preferred.
