2016 Summer Comedy Camps

DSI has been teaching improv Summer Camps across the Triangle for almost 20 years. Our camp instructors have taught locally at Carolina Friends School, The ArtsCenter, Durham JCC, Voyager Academy and our own theater in downtown Chapel Hill. Comedy Camp curriculums are designed by Artistic Director Zach Ward.

DSI camps are split by age: We split camps based on ages below rather than on student experience, so your child can register for any camp as long as they fit the required age by June 1, 2016.

We are currently offering 24 camps for Summer 2016. Camps are $235 for the week.

There will be discounts for repeat campers who pay for the first camp at full price and can register for additional camps by June 1. Once you register for the first camp email camps@dsicomedy.com for a personalized code.

Each week features a private lunchtime show on Tuesday by our own Touring Company.

DSI camps and youth classes help students: Improve verbal ability; Enhance active listening skills; Build body awareness and Boost self-confidence. Improvisation can have a positive impact on students both on- and off-stage. By learning performance games in a safe environment, DSI students are encouraged to take risks and they develop the ability to both tell stories collaboratively and work in the moment.

Contact camps@DSIcomedy.com with any questions about DSI and our Summer Comedy Camps.

We're looking forward to another awesome summer.
