Who's leading CSz Summer Camp?
Kelsey Wagner: Loyal fans have cheered on Lead Teacher Kelsey Wagner as a ComedySportz Buffalo player at The Arena since 2014. Prior to then, she had stints on both the Chicago and San Jose ComedySportz teams. When she's not hitting the field in a comedy competition, she can be found coaching ComedySportz High School League or teaching our Improv for Kids and Adults at The Arena. Kelsey is ready to buckle down for some serious fun this summer at this year's Summer Camp!
Adam Eschborn: After wandering into The Arena on a bet, Adam Eschborn has come up through the ranks at ComedySportz Buffalo, working his way up through the Minor League system and into the pros. Adam is a NYS-certified teacher, and knows everything there is to know about board games. And muffins.
Should I enroll my child in both sessions?
We sure think so! If your camper is the right age for our Kids Camp, Sessions 1 and 2 of CSz Summer Camp will be independent, but related camps. So you can take session 1, but not 2. You could take session 2, but not 1. Or you could take both sessions without getting bored, as different games and exercises will be taught during each session and different groups of campers will make for a different experience. And, since it's improv, you can be sure you won't ever get the same thing twice!
What is this gross thing on my foot?
That's really more of a question for your doctor.
What do I get for my money?
Participants in each session will receive:
5 half-days of improv instruction by pros on the ComedySportz Buffalo team
A showcase for family and friends during the evening of the last day of class
3 tickets to the professional ComedySportz match on the last day of class
An official CSz Summer Camp T-shirt!
I have two kids in two different age groups. Can I please enroll them in the same group so I don't have to drive to your place twice as much and ruin my whole summer driving around in a hot, sticky car?
Unfortunately, no. If we all just went around ignoring rules, this world would be full of tagless mattresses.
CSz Summer Camp FAQ
You've got questions. We've got answers.
I want to enroll my child in Summer Camp, but he/she/I will not be able to make the final showcase on Friday night. Is that okay?
Yes! While we'd absolutely love if all of the campers were able to perform in the final showcase, and all of their parents were there to see them, participation in the Friday showcase is not mandatory.
I want to enroll my child in improv Camp, but he/she is crazy shy and has never done anything like this before. Is that cool?
Yes! We love working with kids who have grown up around theater, but we specialize in bringing the best out of everyone! Your child does not need to have any experience in theater or improv; they just need to have a smile and a willingness to have fun.
