Summer Camp

Day camp or 24h camp!

The 9-12 Camp: July 20 to 25, 2015

The 13-17 Camp: July 6 to 17, 2015

IMG_9888_siteThis summer program in the form of a one or two-week intensive summer camp allows young people ages 9 to 12 or 13 to 17 to experience professional training in circus arts. During their stay, participants receive a solid grounding in the demands of the various disciplines, and begin to learn effective training and personal motivation skills. At the end of the camp, participants wishing to apply for admission to the programs of the School have the option to participate in an entrance exam. If selected, the candidate could integrate the preparatory program or the Circus and High School Studies program in August.

Activities are scheduled 5 days a week, 6 hours per day, and represent a balance between learning physical techniques such as physical conditioning, flexibility, acrobatics, trampoline and "powertrack" with receiving an introduction to such circus arts as aerials, manipulation and balancing. Creative and acting workshops are among the many diverse activities that complement the training participants receive, culminating in performing before an audience.

Summer camp attendees may select from two options.
