Summer Camp Shows

The pride and joy of our outreach work is our work with kids in the community and around the Northwest.

Every summer, we take Jet City Improv across the state of Washington to perform at summer camps for kids with life-altering illness or disabilities, with no cost to the camp. In 2016, Jet City Improv visited a record-setting 13 different camps where we performed a total of 22 shows!

Here’s some information about the camps Jet City Improv visited in 2016.
