What kind of clothing should my child wear to Circus Camp?
First and foremost… CAMPERS MUST WEAR FACES MASKS!
Comfortable clothing such as shorts and t-shirts or leotards are best. Tennis shoes are encouraged. Sandals are also good, unless your child is interested in trying the unicycle class, where closed-toe shoes are required. Due to size limitations, the unicycle class is usually for children aged 8 and above.
Circus Camp is all about encouraging your child’s imagination, so if they want to wear silly clothes, they can wear silly clothes!
We do have a very strict rule about hats… No sharing hats.
Should I pack a lunch for my child(ren)?
Yes, please have your child bring their lunch.
We have a strict No Sharing Food policy to help avoid any food allergy issues. If your child does have a food allergy, make sure to mention it when you register.
Also note the severity. For instance, many times children with peanut allergies can be in the same room as long as they do not come into contact with peanut products. If they cannot be in the same room definitely tell us so we can accommodate.
Our Sandy Springs camp at the Epstein School is a meat-free school.

Please note, per the health directive, students must always enroll AND attend in 3-week chunks in order to comply with the health order. You may stay home on an individual day here and there if needed, but if you plan to miss multiple consecutive classes (for travel, eg), thereby disrupting your ability to attend in 3-week segments, this is not in compliance with the health order. Please contact us if you do plan to travel (or otherwise have a multi-class absence) and have questions about the best ways to keep the staff and all enrolled children safe.

What to expect: A morning warm-up will stretch and strengthen body, mind and imagination through new games and improvisation. We’ll master the basics of stiltwalking, juggling and low-flying trapeze, and explore the world of physical comedy including pantomime, clowning, and mask movement forms, as well as dabbling in tightwire, acrobatics, costuming and set design. As lifelong performers living in a state (and a town) that’s steeped in circus history, we have stories and images galore to share when it’s time for quieter activities. Camp closes on Friday with a special performance showcasing skills learned and joy discovered! Parents, families and friends are cordially invited. You send lunch, we provide a healthy afternoon snack.
Our Advanced camp kids (ages 10 and up who’ve completed at least one week of the Wild Rumpus or other comparable program) get to add German Wheel, Rolling Globe, Aerial Silks, Aerial Improvisation and Theater/Comedy improvisation to their bag of tricks, as well as expand their performance horizons. In our first week, we’ll visit Circus World Museum and perform as walkabout entertainers on grounds. And at the end of two weeks, we’ll wrap all of these new skills into a grand finale performance!
We are professional performers who have delighted audiences and students alike over the years with our hands-on, cooperation-based approach and our active love and sharing of circus arts. Kids of all abilities find themselves mentally engaged, physically active, and smiling as they learn new things. We love our work, and we adore our Wild Rumpus Alumnus!
Our Core Curriculum:
By the Seat of your Baggy Pants: A fun theatrical experience exploring masks, movement, mime, juggling and other cool stuff. Capture the comic vitality of the circus, Vaudeville, and physical comedians such as Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, and Robin Williams. Students will study the value of physical expression and a variety of mime forms. Fun solo and group improvisational exercises will be explored using masks fromSwitzerland and the Italian Theatre. The Clown Character and Circus Skills will also be an integral part of this action-filledworkshop. Students will also learn basic 3-ball juggling techniques, and the art of balancing objects on the nose.
Introduction to Low-Flying Trapeze:Experience the joy of swinging, hanging, floating, spinning, climbing and circling on the low-flying, single point trapeze. Students will learn the basic techniques of swinging big and changing directions in midair, flying in circles, and hanging upside down, right side up and sideways. They will also have opportunities for play, exploration and self expression in a safe, supportive environment.
Stiltwalking: Throughout history stilts have been used for many high jobs like harvesting peaches, walking in soggy areas, washing windows, or in construction and painting. They have also been used in ceremonies, celebrations and rituals; not to mention the circus, throughout the world. Stiltwalking is great fun, confidence boosting, and not so hard to learn . It’s quite like riding a bike, once you’ve succesfully found the balance point you’re on your way. In stilt class students will learn to get up on stilts, walk, dance, stand still, and fall safely.
Tightwire and acrobatics: Thrilling and integral parts of any circus, wire walking and acrobatics develop focus, concentration, balance, coordination and cooperation.
Jacob Mills teaches physical comedy, juggling, pantomime, clowning and tightwire. Marcia Miquelon teaches stilt walking, aerial arts and acrobatics and serves as the administrative director for our Wild Rumpus camp programs. Other circus and education specialists help us fill our lead teaching team; and an awesome crew of high-school and college-aged assistants help us to give our circus students caring, positive, one-on-one instruction and mentoring.

Circus Summer Camp – Trapeze, Juggling, Tightrope & More!
Campers step right up to the Camp Pillsbury Circus! Our circus summer camp program has always been a place where anyone can find their passion. Our summer camp in Minnesota has so many fantastic things for you to try this summer. No matter who you are, we have the very thing you’ve been looking for. We’ll have you unicycling, flying on the trapeze, doing beautiful routines on the silks and lyra, or juggling anything you can hold!
The Benefits of Our Circus Summer Camp Program
Our Circus summer camp program teaches kids crucial life skills such as persistence, collaboration and being present in the moment. It also allows kids to learn to manage risks. Risk-taking is an essential component of healthy development, a part that is often overlooked in an effort to keep kids safe. Teaching kids to appreciate and understand risk in a controlled and safe environment allows them to make better decisions when it counts. Using a progression of skills our experienced staff oversee campers and teach them to manage their own safety as a fundamental part of the skills being learned.
Circus Summer Camp Flying Trapeze
Flying trapeze offers one of the most amazing thrills you will ever experience. The sensation of flying will leave you grinning from ear to ear. While we believe that absolutely everybody can fly, the decision to do so is always 100% your choice. When you’re ready, making the leap can be one of the most rewarding things you will ever do. Here are just some of the benefits that we’ve found can be gained from the flying trapeze:
- We need to feel our bodies working to make our brains work properly. Flying trapeze allows us to work our bodies in ways not usually experienced by human beings.
- We are social beings who need to rely on others. Flying trapeze shows us clearly that more is achieved through combined effort.
- As humans we are earthbound, but we are also aspirational. Flying trapeze allows us to fulfill that dream.
- While the risk is perceived, jumping off that board makes you feel like a very brave person and experiencing success at things that seem dangerous and challenging means that when a situation occurs in the future where a real risk exists, you’re better prepared to manage it safely and effectively.
Circus Summer Camp A
Aerial performance is fun and challenging, campers love the feeling of hanging upside down all while being supervised by highly trained staff who ensure that safety is the first priority. Aerial skills are a fun and engaging way to increase core strength and posture, upper body strength, flexibility, focus and body control. At Pillsbury we have a wide range of aerial apparatus on offer so that campers can choose a challenge appropriate to them and allow them room to progress as their skills develop. The list of aerial equipment is endless and new and thrilling ways to perform continually emerge. Below are just some of the ways aerial circus will be instructed at Pillsbury’s circus summer camp.
Single Trapeze (also called static trapeze) consists of a metal bar suspended by ropes from rigging high in the air. A series of acrobatic moves are performed around the bar. While advanced performers may choose to specialize in this apparatus, it is also a great beginners piece of equipment.
Double Trapeze looks similar to a static trapeze but is rigged higher in the air and the act is performed by two aerialists, typically as a base and flyer. A more advanced act, it consists of drops and sequences as the two aerialists work together.
Triple Trapeze consists of one long metal bar but divided by ropes to leave three spaces for performers. A group act that allows 3 or more aerialists at a time to perform.
Lyra (also called aerial ring or aerial hoop) this beautiful apparatus spins as the aerialist performs different positions in and around the metal hoop. This is an excellent progression for campers that always proves to be a favorite act.
Aerial Hammock is essentially aerial silks that hang in a loop. They offer a fantastic progression option for campers, so they can learn positions and the feel of the material of silks before progressing to the more advanced act.
Silks (also called tissu) are long flexible pieces of fabric hung from high in the air. Aerialists climb the silks and perform a series of wraps, holds and drops. An advanced act that requires strength and aerial awareness, it is none the less and absolute favorite amongst campers.
Spanish Web involves climbing a rope which is used to perform tricks. There is a loop at the very top of the rope, which performers use to lock their wrists into to allow a wider range of techniques to be performed. Beginners will start with basic poses and climbing techniques and will progress towards more advanced techniques.
Straps, also known as aerial straps, is a nylon web apparatus that looks like two suspended ribbons. Performers wrap the strap ends around their hands and wrists and perform holds, twists, rolls and similar men’s rings in gymnastics.
Circus Summer Camp Juggling
Did you know that learning to juggle actually increases the grey matter in your brain? It has also been shown to reduce anxiety, increase focus and of course improve hand eye coordination. That said, we think it’s just really fun!
The trick is finding a juggling prop that you love, which is why we have stocked the circus department with a huge range of choices to suit absolute beginners all the way through to the Anthony Gattos of this world.
Scarves are lightweight pieces of colorful fabric that are typically used by beginners to learn the patterns of juggling. The float of the fabric in the air allows the juggler more time to adjust their movements.
Balls a great all round (no pun intended!) piece of equipment. As balls can be caught in any direction they fall, they are great for beginners. Campers could expect to learn a 3 ball cascade well if practiced every day for a session. The world record of 11 balls at once will take many more hours of practice!
Rings are harder to juggle than balls but easier than juggling clubs. They look fantastic in the air and you can perform lots of unique tricks with them, which makes them a very popular prop.
Diabolos (sometimes called a chinese yoyo) are popular at camp every summer. The diabolo itself rests on a string connected to two handsticks and is spun and thrown in an infinite number of tricks by the juggler. If you glance around camp no doubt you will see a diabolo up in the air somewhere.
Hula Hoops have been around for a long time, but there are so many new and exciting ways to manipulate this prop. Hula 1, hula 3, hula 20 at a time. And if you like, dive through one when you’re done.
Clubs require a rotation to be caught and are therefore usually juggled by the more experienced juggler. They look great in the air and if you invest the time and practice to master them, they are fantastic fun. Also, if you can juggle clubs eventually you’ll be able to move onto knives or even chainsaws! Just kidding, no chainsaws at camp.
Circus Summer Camp Balance
Tightwire as the name suggests a wire that is pulled tight! This is great for developing balance and focus. A famed wirewalker, Philippe Petit, who walked between the rooftops of the twin towers once said ‘It’s impossible, that’s for sure. So let’s start working.’
Unicycling lost a wheel off your bike? No problem! Keep riding.
Rolla Bolla is a board balancing on a cylinder on top of which a camper performs tricks. It’s great for developing balancing and proprioception.
Adagio involves the performance of stationary partner acrobalances. The partnership typically consists of a flier and a base.
Human Pyramids is a group act that involves coordination, timing and trust. Campers build formations by balancing themselves on each other!
Circus Summer Camp Acrobatics
Toss the Girl is a high energy acrobatic piece in which two or three acrobats throw and catch a smaller acrobat.
Acrobatic Jump Rope is just like what you did in the schoolyard, but so much more fun and impressive. Campers will learn how to flip, cartwheel, twist and coordinate jumps with a group to create a fast paced, super fun act.
Parkour and Stunts drawing from the world of street performance and cinema campers will learn the skills necessary to move swiftly through urban spaces and delight audiences with their daring.
Mini Trampoline is always a favorite amongst staff, campers and the audience! A high energy act where campers launch themselves from a small trampoline and perform acrobatic feats before landing on crash mats.
Camp Dates and Rates

Summer Circus Day Camp 2021
Trapeze Arts is committed to having a healthy and safe 2021 camp session for our campers.
Based on the success of our Summer camp season in 2020, with our modified rules and
procedures in light of COVID-19, we are confident that we can have another successful and
Covid free summer this year! Modifications have been based on guidance from the Alameda
County Health Care Agency and the American Camp Association. We are closely monitoring
updates from the CDC as well and will adjust camp policies if needed.
As was the case last summer, we will not be able to have “in-person” camp shows this year, but
we have become the Zoom show experts!! The silver lining is that friends and family who
normally would not have been able to see the show now can!! Details and links for viewing will be
provided during each camp week.
We understand that these continue to be challenging times. We are all
hopeful for an improved outlook where children can safely gather with
other children. While there is a risk in any gathering, including camp,
children are getting to a point where, for some, the isolation carries its own
set of risks. Only you, as a parent, can weigh the options, but we are here if
you think camp is the right choice!
We are committed to providing a safe, secure, and fun environment, as we
always have, while being mindful of the new reality in which we all live.
While the day to day structure of camp will be different from years past,
the fun and excitement that our activities provide will still be the same!!

Magnitogorsk State Circus – official site
So, a new circus program begins – this is not just a show from different numbers: it is a fairy tale performance, which contains an important idea about the conflict between two generations – a young and an older one. Is it possible to turn this “eternal dispute” to the benefit of the heroes?
Can! – Sure the Honored Artist of Russia Alexander Ivanov, head of the circus program “The Secret of the Pirate”. Her artists from the very first moments immerse the viewer in a fairy-tale world.Sea battle and inspiring adventures: in pursuit of pirates, sailors will meet natives, Amazons and, of course, animals that live on a magical island.
The viewer will see the tricks performed by acrobatic dogs – white Spitz, bobtail and Dalmatians – under the direction of Honored Artist of Russia Yuri Sosin. He will get acquainted with the graceful equilibristic cats of Olga Volozhanina, the artistic voltigeur monkeys of Mikhail Volozhanin, as well as with the mysterious inhabitants of the magical jungle: the leopard, crocodiles and pythons of Marina Rudenko.It will not do without meeting mysterious Amazons on beautiful horses: brave riders led by Honored Artist of Russia Valentina Kulkova will show the wonders of horse riding.
The decoration of the program is the world’s only large-scale attraction “Tightrope Walkers with Bears” under the direction of the Honored Artist of Russia Alexander Ivanov. Club-footed sailors – six brown bears – walk on an inclined rope without belay at a height of five meters and perform joint tricks with tightrope walkers.And this is not the only number in the program that is unique for the Russian circus. Such is the number of the juggler-equilibrist Mikhail Ivanov – Honored Artist of Russia, laureate of seven international circus festivals and two-time record holder of the Guinness Book of Records. Mikhail walks along the tightrope, simultaneously hitting the ball with his head, and then juggles with seven balls while moving on a mono wheel …
A musical clown duet – Golden Prize winners at a festival in Korea Angelica and Sergei Klyuevs – are taking part in the circus show.Carpet players play a variety of musical instruments, from trumpet to accordion, and Sergei, besides that, also sings live – and how! . .
The ending of the story is unpredictable. Will the writer’s granddaughter fall in love with reading books? How will a sudden trip change the life of an adult? Will they find a common language, as trainers and their animals, circus performers and their faithful “assistants” – balls, clubs, ropes find a common language? ..
Come and see everything with your own eyes!
Hurry up to find out the secret of the pirate and plunge into the world of wanderings!

The STEAM center was chosen as the venue for it for a reason, since this project, which includes science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics, is currently widely used in national education systems as the most correct and creative solution. That is why these disciplines formed the basis of a rich camp program. All kinds of courses are organized for the participants, expanding their horizons and allowing them to master new skills – the ability to draw on water (ebru), first aid, chess, capoeira, aikido, mountaineering, tourist skills, sports, etc. Excursions to the sights of the region and to the Guba Genocide Memorial Complex were also organized.
Considering that the STEAM project teaches the skills necessary to achieve success in the 21st century, a lot of attention is paid to the rapidly evolving IT field. Courses in programming, 3D modeling, scratching, etc. were organized for the participants so that they could master the professions that are in demand today. Also during the camp, children got acquainted with robotics, learned to launch drones.
Weekly camp Zəfər was greeted with great interest by children, who had the opportunity to spend their summer holidays with benefit and at the same time relax in one of the most beautiful corners of our country. Here they learned a lot of new and interesting things, made many new friends, studied lessons within the STEM program.

Al Saheel Horse Circus (Dubai, UAE) – author’s review, opening hours, prices, photo
In the countries of the Middle East, no show is complete without equestrian numbers: Arabs are born equestrians, and Arabian horses are known all over the world. But the most extensive program showcasing the talents of horses is the Al Saheel circus in Dubai. Even if you happened to see circus performances with the participation of these graceful animals before, you will still be amazed.What can we say about the children – they just sit with their mouths open for an hour and a half of the performance. The fact is that, unlike many entertainment for leisure tourists, horse circus performance is a real art.
The name Al Saheel means “the voice of a horse”. And the circus performance is called “A Thousand and One Horse Stories”. 40 horses of different breeds take part in it: black friezes, American riding, Lusitanian and Andalusian horses, paint horses, miniature horses and Arabian horses.All animals are well-groomed, with sleek sides and lush manes, and some even with flirty hairstyles.
What can they do? Don’t be told by the words “vaulting”, “dressage”, “piaffe”, “changing legs at a canter” – just admire the grace of the movements. Obeying the command, the horses pace slowly and proudly, or prancing in place, or moving harmoniously in a kind of dance, or rushing in a circle, or jumping over fire. Their grace is emphasized by music, light, flying clothes of riders.
Dozens of stories, comic and dramatic, unfold before the eyes of the audience. Horse circus actors sometimes put on masks, then turn into warriors, then try on a clown outfit, but invariably demonstrate miracles of dexterity and fearlessness. To the delight of children, adult artists arrange amusing pony rides. How not to remember Mikhalkov: “A man is sitting in the saddle, his legs are dragging along the ground …”
If you want to see how horses are trained and how complex acrobatic stunts are prepared, join the backstage excursion.It is held before the start of the show, and you can see how the four-legged artists are dressed up. The Hoofbeatz Equestrian Club, on the basis of which the circus operates, offers other horse-learning programs, including hippotherapy and horse riding training.
90,000 Chkalovets. Sanatorium health-improving children’s camp
HISTORY WORTHY TO BE CONTINUED
Chkalovets is one of the oldest camps in Siberia. The camp is rich in its own traditions and unique features.
The official opening date of Chkalovets is July 1937.
Over the long history of its existence, the camp has changed 3 locations. The very first was a dacha settlement in the village of Bibikha; the organizers of the first shifts were young parents who worked at the plant named after I. V.P. Chkalov. The guys lived in the building of the village school, together with the villagers they participated in agricultural work, relaxed and communicated with their peers.
In 1938, the camp moved and was located near the village of Mochishche, 20 km from Novosibirsk.The conditions in the camp were truly Spartan – the guys lived in log huts, there was no electricity, water was brought by horse from the nearest village. But, despite all the everyday disorder in the camp of that time, the guys were united by common affairs and real Chkalov friendship.
During the Great Patriotic War, “Chkalovets” continued his work, the military, who were wounded at the front, worked as counselors in the camp. The guys worked in the collective farm fields, took part in concerts in hospitals, collected parcels to the front – all this became an integral part of children’s life.
After the war, the camp grew and expanded.
It was during these years that the main formation of “Chkalovets” took place. A counselor squad was born, many games and events were invented, which are successfully carried out by our counselors and children to this day.
Over the years, the guys vacationing in “Chkalovets” could meet and communicate with famous people. The guests of our camp were: poet Elizabeth Stewart, Hero of the Soviet Union A.I. Pokryshkin, Olympic champions – biathletes Alexander Tikhonov and Viktor Mamatov. The camp has repeatedly hosted delegations from Bulgaria, Poland, USA, China, Algeria.
Many events – games, contests, circles that have been held in Chkalovets throughout history can be found in many children’s camps. But there were also those who were not found anywhere except in our camp.
In 1958, a pioneer CIRCUS was organized in “Chkalovets”!
It was a real circus – a big top! It could accommodate the entire squad, in which there were more than 700 children.All the basic principles of a real circus were adhered to – tickets, posters were being prepared, the program included numbers of gymnasts, jugglers, magicians, clownery.
Another unique event in our camp was “ROBINZONADA”.
At each season, a competition for the title “Young Robinson-Chkalovets” was held among the older children. The team of winners (5-7 people) set off on a real trip to Bear Island, where young Robinson-Chkalovites lived for a whole week alone, without adults! They prepared firewood, fished, cooked fish soup on a fire, studied the flora of the island.In the evenings they sang songs around the fire. It was a real adventure!
In the mid-1970s, Chkalovets opened a new page in its history .
In 1968, the leadership of the plant named after. V.P. Chkalov, it was decided to build a children’s complex – comfortable, modern, fully equipped for a good rest for children.
Invaluable contribution to the history of the modern “Chkalovets” of the director of the plant.V.P. Chkalov of that time, Vanaga Gleb Aleseevich. Under his personal control was the development of the camp project, all construction work and further development of “Chkalovets”.
The children’s playground met its first guests in 1976, and the official opening of the modern Chkalovets took place in July 1977. The location of the camp has changed, but the traditions of “Chkalovets” have remained unchanged.
The leader-teachers, students of the Novosibirsk State Pedagogical Institute and the Bolotninsky Pedagogical School took the baton from the factory leaders.
The leader’s detachment was named “Orion”.
Modern Chkalovets is growing and developing. A professional sports complex has been built, a cinema and concert hall has been equipped with the latest technology, major repairs are being carried out in the buildings, the territory of the camp has turned into a truly fabulous city.
The pedagogical and medical service of the camp works at a high level. Unique programs are being created, new projects are being developed. “Chkalovets” is rightfully becoming the leader among the camps not only in the Novosibirsk region, but throughout Siberia.
“If to be, then to be the first!” – said V.P. Chkalov. This principle runs through the entire history of Chkalovets. At different times, our camp strove to be the first, and it succeeded.
