9 am – 3 pm

The Hudson Valley Writing Project (HVWP) offers remarkable summer experiences for students at the region’s most important cultural and historic sites, nature preserves, and college campus in the Hudson Valley.


Workshops are led by HVWP Teacher Consultants, some of the best teachers in the Hudson Valley. With creative guidance, writers will have opportunities and inspiration to write. At the end of each program, writers will choose one piece to refine, revise, and share in an end-of-program celebration.


The Hudson Valley Writing Project at SUNY New Paltz is an educational organization whose purpose is to promote literacy development and to improve writing in all disciplines and at all levels of education, pre-kindergarten through college.

ULSTER PARK – Teen Improv Summer Boot Camp @ Hudson Valley Improv


This is a unique Bootcamp Experience designed to arm teen performers with deeper work on the acting skills we teach to make a well rounded improv performer.



Monday – Friday, 11:30 am- 3 pm

Session 1: July 8th – 12th

Session 2: August 5th-9th


Sign up for one or both!





In this 5 day summer class, we combine acting technique training specifically used for improv games with improv games that use those techniques. Here you teen will build an essential toolbox of skills they can use in acting, improv or any type of solo performance work. Half the day is spent on detailed acting technique, then there’s a team lunch break in our Adirondack chair circle in the back yard. Then for the 2nd half we apply everything learned that morning into improv games.



Please send your kid with a bagged lunch and water for class. Lunch is at 1 pm.


There is no final show with this class, as it is focused on training. 


Only 12 Spots Available in each session. No Experience Necessary
