Summer Camps

Learn improv, teamwork, stagecraft and more!

“Mom – I really like being funny. And I don’t think I’m shy anymore.” – 2023 camper
“I honestly think it’s one of the best, most creative summer camps out there. I really think you are doing great stuff.” – 2023 camper parent

“We loved that it was just a nice casual place that emphasized the relationships and interactions among the kids! Perfect!” – 2023 camper parent

Teaching positivity through improv every summer since 2009!

Learning Improv develops creativity, teamwork, confidence, performance skills and so much more!

Hideout Improv Camps are usually 50% or more returners because we have:

low staff/child ratios

game based curriculum

engaged artists as teachers

community time for making friends

an historic downtown theater *

Kids learn the basics of improv, story telling, and stagecraft mostly through playing games –

because having fun is the first rule of improv!

Everyday we play games, create stories, perform scenes, and generally have a blast.

On the final day we show off our amazing new skills in a performance for friends and family.
