Campers learn the basics of balance board, rolling globe, unicycle, tight wire, stilts, tumbling, juggling and theatrical clowning. Returning campers will be assisted in gaining new skills at advanced levels. Each day begins with a group game and a fun circus warm-up followed by an intro to a new skill. Campers then rotate in groups through a series of circus learning “stations” to discover and practice skills in a fun, individualized and supportive environment. Our lunch hour is outside in the sunshine and often involves water play. Towards the end of the week, campers may focus on skills of their choosing. Families are invited to a creatively themed showcase on the last day. For ages 8–13, all levels. Cost: $300. Trained instructors. Fully insured. Registration required. Space is limited.
