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 summer camps for kids with life-altering illnesses or disabilities, or kids recovering from the loss of a loved one.
We bring laughter to kids that need it the most, at no cost to the organizations that operate the camps.
In the summer of 2019, over 1000 campers, staff and parents at 13 different camps were treated to JCI performances or workshops.
In 2020, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, most of our camp shows were performed virtually (on line), but in Summer 2021 we are returning to a mix of some virtual shows, and some in-person shows.
Jet City Improv has visited dozens of camp over two+ decades. We often perform as a many as 25 times around the Puget Sound area in a single summer. Here is a list of summer of our "greatest hits":
