Youth Camp

Ages 9-14

 

Whether new to circus or more experienced, campers in this session will learn new skills and improve in old ones. The twin goals of Youth Camp are: to achieve basic competency or to deepen in circus skill proficiency; and to work collaboratively with coaches to create a culminating performance by Friday afternoon.  Coaches emphasize effort and positive mental attitude and progress is measured against one’s own abilities.

Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays begin with a comprehensive warm-up and stretching in preparation for a morning of skills rotations. Rotations include: acrobatics and tumbling; toss juggling (scarves, balls, rings, clubs); balance equipment (tightwire, rola bola, rolling globe, unicycles); and gyroscopic juggling (trick sticks, diabolos, poi). Afternoon activities include clowning, human pyramids, and strengthening. By Wednesday of each session campers select two skills that will be showcased in Friday’s performance, then they spend Thursday composing and polishing their acts. On Fridays, Youth Camp ends with a Show for families and friends, followed by the traditional SLCC popsicles. “SLCC WE CAN DO IT!”

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!
