Practice the art of Improv and learn how to use the skills you acquire in everyday life to work cooperatively with others in creating innovative solutions to challenges in your environment.  In this program we will explore how Columbia’s creators improvised to imagine and build our town.  We will have fun practicing Improv and designing community innovations.  After the camp participants will have the option to join an existing group of peers engaged in creating projects to support a dynamic and thriving Columbia, or be part of developing new enterprises.  (For current projects see the descriptions on the “Our Programs” page.)
