Levels: Beginner students who are trying circus for the first time AND Intermediate to Advanced students who want to improve their skills.
Description: Summer Circus Camp is a fun, safe, supportive and challenging environment where children explore the many skills that create the Circus Arts. CircEsteem Camp allows each child to develop self-confidence, self-esteem, physical awareness and an understanding of the potential they possess.
Skills taught may include: Acrobatics, clowning, juggling, stilt walking, gym wheel, rolling globe, tight wire, and rolla bolla. Students enrolled will get to share their excitement and skill with family and friends at the end of the week in a show!
Before & After Care: Before care is offered at 8:00am for $10/day. After care is offered until 5:00pm for $20/day.
Lunch: Campers must bring their own lunches . Campers are encouraged to bring a healthy lunch that does not require heating or refrigeration. No candy or chips! Bringing a bottle of water is highly recommended as the daily activities are physically demanding.
Attire and personal belongings: Campers should wear clothing that is easy to move in and appropriate for being upside down. Shorts must be at least mid thigh – no “short” shorts please. Gym shoes and socks are necessary for some circus activities. Wear or bring both every day. Jewelry is not allowed because it can easily get lost, damaged, or cause injury when snagged and pulled off the body inadvertently. CircEsteem is not responsible for any lost or stolen belongings. It is recommended that valuables be left at home.
