Summer Camp Shows

The core of our outreach work is our performances and workshops for 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 2017 JCI visited 11 camps with 22 performances or workshops; 2018 will raise th ebar for our Summer Camp Tour.

Here’s the camps Jet City Improv will visit in Summer 2018.
