Matty Burns, Camp Director
Welcome to The Second City Summer Camps!
Why is improvisation so important for youth and teens? Whether or not your child comes to The Second City because they want to be an actor or because they just want to improve their social skills, the importance of improvisation comes from the philosophy of "Yes and." Everyone fits in and is accepted here!
Improvisation is a transferrable life skill. We teach acceptance, team work and communication. It is our goal and vision to give youth and teens an opportunity to explore and create within the many facets of improvisation. As former Second City Chicago Artistic Director Martin De Maat says "The fun is always on the other side of a yes."
Welcome to the community, it will change your life. We guarantee it!
