Circus Summer Camp
June 14 : 9:00 am - August 6 : 3:00 pm$350
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls –especially boys and girls ages 6-15 – get ready for the greatest, most unique summer camp experience on Earth! Returning to the recently renovated Sailor Circus Arena this summer is the Circus Arts Conservatory’s popular Circus Summer Camp, where children will learn various circus arts disciplines and life skills while having the time of their lives. Available in one- and two-week sessions, camp runs from June 14 through August 6.
Circus promotes teamwork, builds muscles, improves coordination, increases concentration skills, and infuses campers with confidence and self-esteem; plus, it’s an awful lot of fun. Skills to be taught include: juggling, tightrope, trapeze, hula hoops, aerials, clowning and more. Children are encouraged to explore a variety of skills as well as to choose a target skill they feel most passionate about. At the end of each session, students will present a performance for parents and immediate family showcasing all they’ve learned.
Due to the pandemic, the CAC has instituted intensive health and safety protocols, with social distancing, masks required, temperature checks before entering the facility, and more. Overall camp size has been scaled down and group acts may not be included. There will be frequent hand-washing breaks and all communal spaces and equipment will be sanitized daily.
The Circus Summer Camp will be offered Monday through Friday, 9 a.m.-3 p.m. in the Sailor Circus Arena (2075 Bahia Vista St, Sarasota). Cost is $350/week, or $700/two-week session. Hours are 9 a.m.-3 p.m., with before and after-care available. For more information, call 941-355-9335 or visit circusarts.org.
