Circus Immersion Camp 2018

2018 Summer Information - 2019 Information Available This Winter

Step outside your everyday life and immerse yourself in another world with 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.  Develop your own characters and learn full-body expressions while mask-acting.  Join us under the big top for a one or two-week experience.  

Groups are divided by skill and experience with tasks to challenge and enrich each camper as an individual and as a team!  Campers 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, campers are challenged with more difficult moves and exercises like the German Wheel and the Spanish Web. All campers will have an opportunity to showcase their skills with a performance under our very own big top.
