Circus and Flying Trapeze

Circus is the jewel in our shiny crown

Our circus rocks because it:

  1. Is a place of fun for everyone, where no one is turned away.
  2. Is just the right size; not too big (no one gets lost), not too small.
  3. Offers a variety of levels (beginner to advanced)
  4. Is run by a certified camp safety director, and taught by multi-talented staff members that have passed a structured training program.
  5. Is constantly changing to fit the wants and needs of the kids.
  6. Offers high quality facilities and equipment.
  7. Encourages campers to reach their greatest potential.
  8. Supports an alternative type of physical education that also teaches teamwork.
  9. Fosters invaluable experiences for both campers and staff members, leaving a positive impact on their lives.
  10. Provides a great place for kids with stage fright to have their first performing experience and boost their self-confidence.
  11. Promotes a structured learning environment, but we never forget the crazy, zany fun that embodies circus.
  12. Produces a crowd-favorite show; our performances amaze parents every year.
  13. Nurtures and strengthens all three learning domains: cognitive (learning tricks), effective (goal-setting, perseverance, helping others), and psychomotor (timing, hand-eye coordination, gross and fine motor skills.)
  14.  Stimulates creativity and sparks a passion for learning in our circus-enthusiast campers.
  15. Is always full of laughter!
