About Circus Camps

What other program combines live improv acting and physical feats most astounding? It’s Circus Immersion Camp!  Gain the confidence to soar through the air on a trapeze. Balance your mind and body as we learn tightrope and stilt-walking.  It’s more than just clowning around when we develop our own characters and learn full-body expressions while mask-acting.  Join us for a one or two-week experience of the great American circus! 

Come join the circus!  Learn juggling, clowning, mask performance, stilt-walking, low trapeze and low tightrope under our very own big top.  Groups are divided by skill and experience with tasks to challenge and enrich each performer as an individual and as a team!  Performers will have the opportunity to visit Circus World Museum in Baraboo to learn about the history and tradition of the circus.  In the two-week experience, performers are challenged with more difficult moves and exercises like the German Wheel and the Spanish Web.
