SILVER LINING SUMMER CAMP ANNOUNCEMENT
COVID-19 has had a huge impact on the Flying Gravity Circus and our capacity to safely manage our programs. Due to pandemic-related concerns regarding staff and camper safety, Silver Lining Circus Camp will not be offered in summer 2021. We understand that many of you look forward all year to making circus arts a part of your summer, and we urge you to check back next year for our 2022 circus camp season!
Silver Lining Circus Camp
Juggling, acrobatics, and unicycling -- clowning, tightwire, and diabolo!
There are so many activities at Silver Lining Circus Camp, it’s hard to fit them all into a week!
At Junior Camp (ages 6-8), campers jump, roll, and tumble, spin plates, balance peacock feathers, juggle scarves, and more! Circus activities intersperse with free play, outdoor time, crafts, rest time, and stories in our circus library. The week ends with a “share” for family and friends including face painting and the famous Silver Lining popsicles!
Circus skills (and fun!) are the focus of our Youth Camp (ages 9-14). Campers warm up, then rotate through skills stations in acrobatics, juggling skills, and balancing on tightwire, unicycles, and rolling globe. After lunch there is clowning, Coaches’ Choice, and free practice -- not to mention strengthening! By mid-week, campers select the skills they want to focus on for Friday’s show and work with their coaches to build their acts. (Also: Popsicles!)
Most years we also run a 2-week Advanced Camp for campers with previous circus experience. Previous themes include show-building and a local tour, a clown intensive, and an act building and creation intensive.
