Philadelphia Circus Camp Lets Children Turn Summer Upside Down

Philadelphia Circus Camp Lets Children Turn Summer Upside Down

Philadelphia School of Circus Arts (5900A Greene Street) invites children to turn their summer upside-down - literally - during full-day “Summer Circus Camp.”  Children five years old and up will train in static trapeze, aerial silks, juggling, plate-spinning, tightwire-walking, clowning and acrobatics.   Activities also include performance classes, co-operative games, and special guest artists.  While balancing, climbing and tumbling, children will build strength and flexibility, learn new skills, and increase their confidence. Full-day camp programs range from a one-week Junior Camp for 5 to 7 year olds, to a two-week Youth Camp for 8 to 14 years old. Two new camps this year include Circus Camp A La Carte for children who need a flexible schedule (pick a day or a week!) and Performance Intensive Camp for advanced students who want to train like the pros right here in Philadelphia!
