The rest of your IP-Summer includes a diverse selection of 2-Week Musical Theater Camps.  All will showcase Broadway style with concentrations in acting, voice, choreography and dance, sparking a young person's imagination, building their communication skills and instilling a sense of discipline, responsibility and dedication. Final performances are generally on the final Thursday and Fridays!  Performances will be held on our local stages at the camp facilities.  Unless otherwise noted:  Our FULL DAY Music Theatre Camps serve campers grades entering 4th - 8th, with HALF-DAY options for campers entering 1st - 3rd.  Accommodations are made to segregate younger campers from older campers giving focused attention to age groups though they might be combined in some rehearsals, field trips and final showcases.  Some exceptions to your camper's schedule may be approved.

Do you dream of becoming a model? This exciting and glam “boot camp” will leave you with a ton of knowledge on how to take the next big step or just have fun. Young ladies and men will be taught everything they need to know about the competitive fashion, print modeling and pageant industry in a week filled with runway technique, role playing, a healthy self concept, visits from pros and a final fashion showcase. We'll collaborate with Amazing Cosmetics and other great retail places around Libertyville.  What fun!  Each day will focus on new activities that build upon each other!

Our camp staff team consists of dedicated theater and entertainment business practitioners who have worked as nurturing leaders in education, camping and their respective fields.  Staff members include interns and counselors age 18+, and Camp Directors who oversee each camp location. Our counselors have trained experience in dance/choreo, voice, drama, film, modeling and performance instruction.   They enjoy working with children to help them gain confidence, grow as performers, build their interdependent communities and most importantly have FUN!

   

OUR MISSION

Improv Playhouse Performing Arts Camps involve your child in fun filled, local summer programming with stellar professional staff at prices for families looking for flexible choices and discriminating budgets.  Each camp session will offer unique training and each camper will have the opportunity to explore and focus upon new paths of creativity in the Performing Arts. Improv Playhouse emphasizes an environment that nurtures every child as an individual artist, challenges aspiring actors and inspires theater beginners. All levels are encouraged to enroll. Programming will not be duplicated from mornings to afternoons where applicable.

- We work to provide a non-competitive, nurturing and  fun environment for our campers.
- All roles in the workshops are assigned to the children by our staff. Campers are not  required to do cold readings or prepare memorized audition pieces.
- We reserve the right to determine casting at our discretion.
- Any special clothing, costumes or dress is provided by the parents.  Our camp shows are only $5 (to cover special rental of the stages) and open only to the friends and family members of our campers.

-Full and half camp hours include breaks for snacks and lunch time.

Fun Times! Great Friends! And More!

 

Based on the scores calculated by the ACA, the Board of Directors voted unanimously to classify Improv Playhouse Performing Arts Camps as accredited with the highest achievable scores.  Sample categories from Human Resources, Operational Management to Program Design and Activities is assessed by ACA Directors and Administrators.  ACA accredits over 2,400 camps. ACA-Accredited® camps meet up to 300 standards for health, safety, and program quality (Safety Tips/Accreditation).  As a leading authority in youth development, ACA works to preserve, promote, and improve the camp experience. The association is committed to helping its members and all camps provide:

  • Camp communities committed to a safe, nurturing environment
  • Caring, competent adult role models
  • Healthy, developmentally appropriate experiences
  • Service to the community and the natural world
  • Opportunities for leadership and personal growth
  • Discovery, experiential education, and learning opportunities
  • Excellence and continuous self-improvement

Improv Playhouse has developed a program rubric based on the ACA standards.  The American Camp Association is a community of camp professionals who, for over 100 years, have joined together to share its knowledge and experience and to ensure the quality of camp programs. Just as its membership is diverse and programs distinct, so are the children who come to Improv Playhouse camps to participate in the camp experience. Through what Improv Playhouse teaches, the opportunities it offers, and the example its staff sets, children become part of a sharing community.
