march break camps
School's on vacation so let's have some fun!
Build confidence, foster creativity and help young people give voice to their ideas, all in a supportive, nurturing and (above all) fun environment. Our camps emphasize story, listening, impulse work (being spontaneous!), teamwork, basic stagecraft, agreement, confidence and game play.
Teen Theatre Sports Training Camp
Camp for grades 9-12 | March 12th-16th
Think fast on your feet, follow your impulse, and work as a team as you learn the ins and outs of Toronto's longest running improv show, Theatresports! Campers will learn skills to help unlock creativity, boost confidence, and push their improv to the next level.
Watch it all come together in a performance at the end of the week as part of Bad Dog Theatre's The Dog Bowl Tournament.
Youth March Break Camp
Camp for grades 5-8 | March 12th-16th

We ask that all campers are dressed in comfortable clothing that is easy to move in (we get very active!) and have a comfortable pair of shoes (no open toe or sandals) Water bottles are also great to have so campers can stay hydrated.
