The Midwest is home to thousands and thousands of improvisers, some of whom have never met.

Some that have studied the same lessons, the same text, the same tenets, the same teachers, and have hoped to grow under the same guidance of the golden rules.

Those players have dreamed the same dreams, maybe with some variation (I want to work here or there, I hope to be professional, I wish I could keep growing this art); the good ones – well, the really good ones – just want to be GOOD, really – and attempt to live by the same principles we practice on stage:

Listen. Play. Share. Think. Breathe. React. Understand. Be affected. Give a damn.

Say yes.

Some dreamers got together, and all said yes to a thought – even though it might be crazy – one weekend soon, let’s all be together, a new way.

The Counselors

There are some really wonderful people that have made this camp an incredible experience. Not only have each of these people guided your general experience over the retreat weekend, but they have all taught workshops, given lectures, and have had the same amount of fun (if not more) alongside all of you at this mega sleepaway retreat. Meet these faces of your past-and-present teachers (and pals).
