A TYPICAL DAY AT CIRCUS CAMP:

 

WARMUP
Everyday begins with an energizing warm-up. As campers warm-up their bodies for the physical day to follow, they learn about proper body mechanics and the importance of warm-ups for injury preventation, flexibility, strength, and technique.

 
SKILL WORKSHOPS
A large portion of the day is spent learning circus skills in small, focused groups. Campers are grouped primarily by skill level.

 
TROUPE TIME
During this portion of the day, we work on large group activities that get campers working together as a performance troupe. Allowing opportunities throughout the day for campers to work together regardless of age, gender or skill level, promotes peer mentoring, community, and artistic expression.

ELECTIVES
During the second week of each session, campers get choose how they spend their afternoons in elective skill stations. This a great time to try a brand new circus skill, or a non-circus related activity like arts and crafts or outdoor games.  It is also an opportunity for campers to delve deeper into their favorite circus act in preparation for the showcase.

FAQ

Does my child need circus experience to join?

No experience necessary. Campers are encouraged to try Westchester Circus Arts’ wide variety of skills in a fun, accessible, and safe environment.

Will my child be grouped with other kids his/her age?

For most activities, campers are to be grouped according to age and ability. However, mixed-age activity is an attractive feature of our camp. We foster an atmosphere that keeps the family tradition of the circus alive. All campers are challenged to reach their individual goals while also thriving in a team environment.

What should campers wear?

Leotards and leggings or tights for girls, athletic wear for boys (nothing baggy) and sneakers.

At Westchester Circus Arts, safety is our number one priority. Our trainers employ the most advanced spotting techniques. We follow the standards outlined by American Circus Educators Association for spotting techniques and safety practices.
