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). (SLCC does not offer aerials.)  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.
