Ages 6-8

Developmentally, children this age are ready for extra physical and creative challenges, although they still thrive on imitation, imagination and play. Along with the hard work of learning new fun circus skills, the days at Junior Camp are full of time for free play, crafts, quiet reading and resting, singing time, and of course healthy snacks and lunches brought from home.

Circus skills taught in this age group include most or all of the following: obstacle courses; feather balancing; plate spinning; trick sticks; diabolos; ribbon twirling; fun with scarves and bean bags; hula hoops; tightwire walking; rolling globe. 

On Fridays, Junior Camp ends with a “Share” (rather than a “Show”) for families and friends, followed by those famous SLCC popsicles!

Dates: Three 1-Week Sessions.  Space is limited to 15 campers per session.

I.   June 29 - July 3

II.  July 6-10

III. July 13-17


Junior Camp meets Monday-Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

What about COVID-19? Is camp still going ahead?

The FGC team has been in close discussion with our circus education colleagues around the country, as well as listening to advice from the YMCA, American Camping Association, the CDC, state and federal governments, and the pandemic task force of AYCO and ACE.


Given the many complexities and challenges of hosting a camp during the pandemic, we have decided we will not hold in-person Silver Lining Circus Camp this summer. 

But have no fear! CIRCUS IN A BOX is here! 
You can now have a week of Circus Camp shipped right to your door, equipment and all, and participate in real-time online classes with a coach and other campers. The 5-day Box Sessions are the same dates as Silver Lining, so don't delay!
