Director's Message


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!

Stories & Testimonials


Life changing program

I've got lots of good words to say about the Second City Training Centre! I had to cajole our son into attending his first lesson there but after that he wouldn't miss a lesson under any circumstances. Two years later, and, at the risk of sounding too "dramatic," Second City has literally changed his life. In addition to the new acting skills and many friends he has made, he has developed a keen sense of himself, and an enduring self-confidence. His teacher has been exceptional. She is highly creative, thoroughly engaged with her students , and very skilled at creating a fun, safe environment for her students to develop their skills. She is very respected by her students, who know only too well when they've got a good thing going.

Self-confidence, maturity, and self-discovery

The Second City Training Camp, Well, you did it! You lived up to your published promises about The Second City Camp. In the one-week camp my son just completed, I saw an astouding change in him, day-by-day. If I had to use three words, they would be self-confidence, maturity, and self-discovery. His biggest finding was that you don't try to please strangers ... be yourself. I hope he holds on to that lesson. When asked, he also said that the instructors made everything very positive toward everyone, and (as I surely had expected) kept the humour going throughout the day. I was the lady with the loudest laugh during the performances. But I will mention that when you see a performance that involves your own child, it's different from going to a regular performance. Thank you for teaching me that lesson. He loved his week in camp. If he had an otherwise uneventful summer, he'd be doing more. But of this I'm pretty sure. See you next year. Thank you so much, Jo-Ann Mom of Jackson, SC Camper

10 year old Testimonial

My 10 year old son enjoys the course and his teacher, Rob, immensely. Rather than having to drag him downtown, he’s ready to go to The Training Centre with enthusiasm!
