Silver Lining Circus Camp

Junior Camp

We're sorry to report that in October of 2014 Rick Davis was diagnosed with brain cancer. As a result, he and Jackie will need to focus on his healing and will not be offering Kinder Camp and Junior Camp this summer (2015). We hope Silver Lining will once again be offered to our youngest campers in 2016.

Developmentally, this age group still thrives on imitation and play but campers at this stage are ready for extra physical and creative challenges. Crafts, lots of time for free play, quiet reading and resting, singing time, and of course healthy snacks and lunches brought from home make up the Junior Camp days. 

Circus skills taught in this age group includes increased challenge in most or all of the following: obstacle courses; feather balancing; plate spinning; devil sticks; diabolos; ribbon twirling; fun with scarves and bean bags; hula hoops; tightwire walking; rolling globe; and one day of unicycling! Tricks and stunts known as “Specials” are loved by this age group.

On Fridays, Junior Camp ends with a “Share” (rather than a “Show”) for families and friends, followed by those famous SLCC popsicles!

Two 1-Week Sessions  Space is limited to 20 campers per session


July 14-18 - for 7-8 year olds. (Theme: "Pirate Adventures")

July 21-25 - for 7-9 year-olds.  This session will introduce slightly higher level skills. It is designed to be a "bridge" year before going to the older Youth Camp. Good for previous campers who want a new experience. Also for 9 year-olds who are new to circus. (Theme: "Knights & Ladies of the Castle")

Junior Camp meets Monday-Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. 

Campers may be dropped off starting at 8:30 (but not earlier, please).
