♦ We run fun-filled week-long day camps for kids ages 7 to 15. Details on ages, times, costs, etc. vary by location, but camps typically run from Monday to Friday, 9am-3pm, culminating in a show on Friday afternoon for friends and family. Some camps offer optional extended day programs. Thanks to our extensive network of programming partners, in our 2015 season we will operate at 11 locations in 7 Maryland counties, including Baltimore city and greater Washington DC.
♦ Our seasoned circus coaches lead campers in a broad range of activities including juggling, stilt walking, unicycle riding, tightrope walking, rolla bolla, walking globe, clowning, acrobatics, aerial arts, and our famous pie in the face day. Hand-eye coordination, balance, and self-confidence all improve as kids realize that with practice and a positive work ethic, they can learn anything.
♦ Some sessions offer our new Big Top Buddies program geared towards younger campers, where we emphasize manipulation skills such as spinning plates, balancing feathers/sticks and juggling scarves. Acrobatics, clowning, and pie in the face day are still included, with the addition of circus-themed arts and crafts projects.
♦ Registration includes camp shirt and jugging bean bags at most camps. Please refer to the registration materials at your location for information about snacks and lunches.
♦ Campers should wear clothing in which they can move freely and hang upside-down. Shoes must be securely attached and have a closed toe. Please, no flip flops or Crocs. Sneakers are best.
