The Circus Project
Our online circus camps are fully interactive, using the Zoom video platform to keep students engaged and active. Students will use their whole bodies, and engage their minds and creativity. Camps are supplemented with a printable activity packet for screen-free time as well.
Each day starts with an engaging warm-up to prepare students for all the bending, jumping, twisting, and flying we’ll do throughout the day. Students then move through acrobatics, juggling, theater, and more, all from the comfort of their own home. Our coaches will be there every step of the way to help each student work toward individual goals in a fun and friendly team atmosphere. We are also still accepting auditions for the August session of our Youth Summer Intensive, for the experienced circus student age 10-17.
Dates: June 15 – Aug 29
Cost: $50-$250 per week (sliding scale).
Ages: Little Circus Camp for ages 5-6, Kids Circus Camp for ages 7-11, and the Youth Summer Intensive for the experienced circus student at 10-17 (by audition)
