Circus Immersion Camps 2019

Circus Immersion Camp offers the perfect environment for campers to get creative and step outside their comfort zone.  Campers will learn character mask-acting, trapeze, tightrope, stilt-walking, juggling, and much more.

Campers will have the opportunity to visit Circus World Museum in Baraboo to learn about the history and tradition of the circus. 

No experience is required. Campers participating in the two-week experience will have an opportunity to dig deeper into the circus arts as they learn skills like the German Wheel and the Spanish Web. 

All campers will have an opportunity to showcase their skills with a performance on our aerial equipment or under our very own big top.
