The key to each actor’s creative genius lies in their sense of play. Too often, in this industry and in this world, we think that mining our pain will lead to our best performance—when what is most often overlooked (and often overlooked) is tapping into our joy. Taught by the incomparable ZBS faculty, we will combine the meaningful, professional and holistic training ZBS is known for, with some true summer fun! This is not only an enormous opportunity to evolve your art, but to have a ridiculously good time doing it.

The Crow’s comedy camp for kids brings 20+ years of comedy experience, mixed with a hefty background in running youth day camps and teaching theater in local schools! The Crow built a stage specifically for your young jokesters! Focusing on stand-up, improv, sketch, storytelling, writing, and stage confidence, your child will have an opportunity to learn joke structure while finding their storytelling perspective and voice through exciting play and activities. Each day will be mixed with team building, performance art, outdoor play, arts and crafts, and professionally constructed fart jokes – culminating in a final live performance at the end of each one-week session on Friday night for family and friends at The Crow’s main stage.
Check out a parent’s review:
“Our eight-year-old daughter got to perform stand-up for an audience. It was one of those moments I will never forget as a parent. I got to see a side of her that I’d never seen. She was poised, confident, and really looked like she was in her element. We always thought she’d like to be on stage, but she’s never been this excited about any theater, dance, or singing performance she’s done in the past. She’s always liked telling and writing jokes, but we didn’t think much of it. I’m not sure what they exactly did at the camp, but they really helped her to find herself on the stage. I’ve never seen her shine as she did during the show after just 5 days of camp. Also, the show at the end of the week was incredibly well produced. You’d think a kids’ comedy show would probably be a little boring and awkward, but it was actually incredibly entertaining and fun. Thank you!”
