The Second City Teen/Kids Program
Now enrolling for Spring and Summer Break Camps
Explore the world of comedy through improv, stand-up and clowning with exercises that develop stage presence, creativity, communication skills, patience, and self-confidence. You’ll have a blast while learning new skills, meeting new friends and experiencing why Chicago is the comedy capital of the world!
Students are grouped by age, with 8-to-10-year-olds learning improv and clowning, and 11 to 18 year olds focusing on improv and stand-up. No previous experience is necessary! Also available for 15-to-18-year olds who are serious about comedy and might want to pursue it professionally is our Advanced Comedy Camp. This camp requires an application submission and previous training with us.
Camps are held at The Second City Training Center in Chicago at 1608 N Wells (Pipers Alley), and align with Spring, Summer and Winter breaks. Classes for kids and teens in improv, stand-up and clowning, as well as acting and music, are also offered year-round. Adult classes, intensives and immersions are also available in a wide variety of areas, so parents can take a class at the same time as their kids!
Feel free to call or stop by with any questions regarding classes, performance opportunities, student perks or anything Training Center related. We look forward to seeing you soon.
