Typical Day at Circus Camp (early arrival possible at 8:30am)
“We just LOVE Mr. Amazing’s Big Top Circus Camp”
– said every mom in Nyack, NY
Parents typically send their children to a 2-week session. 10% of our campers will stay for all 3, 2-week sessions. Many will opt, as well, for our 1-week option. This must be taken as the first week of a 2-week session. At the end of each 2-week session, we will present ‘The Really Big Show: a Showcase of Talent’ in which all the campers from that 2-week period perform their best tricks/acts in the Showcase.
The second week of camp is reserved for prepping for the Showcase of Talent. Campers decide with the help of the Counselors which acts they are best suited. Rehearsals are conducted each day. On the day of the Showcase, we conduct a final run through, start hair and make-up, then costumes, then perform a one-hour show.
As a courtesy to parents staying in town on July 4, if the holiday falls on a weekday, our camp stays open for a Circus Family Fun Day: all parents and siblings are invited to come to camp to try out all the equipment. Parents are taught Acrobatic Partnering with their camper-child. It is a great day for everyone!
