Improvcamp is a week-long summer camp held at Camp Fircom (Gambier Island, BC) where young improvisers receive comprehensive instruction in improvisational theatre by professionals from all over North America. Campers will be organized into ensembles that will travel from workshop to workshop, gaining skills and learning about their craft. There are performances each night, and many summer camp favourites like field games, canoeing and campfires!
Are you inspired by supporting young people to deepen their connection with themselves, new friends, and the world around them? Are you ready to spend a week deep-diving into improvisational theatre while in some of the most breathtaking places? As camp counsellors, first aider, or trainers, you will make friends for life, eat delicious food, and make a huge difference in the lives of young people.
Our team is made up of mature, creative, and nurturing individuals that are capable of providing each camper with a safe, supportive, and memorable camp experience. Lots of energy, a positive attitude, and love are a must! It’s a short week but we cram it full of action. We focus on creating communities of belonging by connecting with each other through improv and provide an environment support.
