Laughter League is an integrated therapeutic healthcare clowning program that currently reaches nearly 100,000 children patients and their families annually in the pediatric healthcare setting at our four hospital locations. Our professionally trained performers work with the treatment team to utilize the transformative and healing powers of laughter as an integral part of the patient’s care.

Our collaboration with Camp John Marc began in 2010 and has grown each year. In 2018, we partnered for multiple weeks at camp, providing a consistent level of humor to the week, whether through teaching workshops, showing up as goofy characters at the pool, or helping a camper get through a tough bout of homesickness.
Two professional comic performers from Laughter League are in residence at camp. They interact with the campers and staff throughout the week, making appearances all around camp. Besides providing consistent comic relief, Laughter League teaches balancing, juggling, clown routines, and improvisation to campers. Campers get a chance to perform their newfound skills at the end of camp. It’s an amazing opportunity to have fun and build self-esteem. Laughter League performers are there to contribute to the team goal and look for the humor in every situation that arises.
