Young circus stars learn acting, improv, and dance – all while flying in the air!
A summer day camp for incoming 4th graders and older, The Actors Gymnasium Circus and Performing Arts Camp is perfect for young performers who want to strengthen, stretch and flex their creative muscles.
Each day begins with a warm-up, followed by training and workshops in circus, drama, and movement. Students learn circus and aerial skills: juggling, tumbling, trapeze, tightwire, stilts, and more; take fun-filled field trips; and create and perform their very own circus-theatre performance at the end of the session! Camp is directed by Sylvia Hernandez-DiStasi.
Session 1: June 11 – July 6
Mon-Fri 9 AM – 4 PM
No camp July 4th.
Session 2: July 9 – August 3

Parents can coordinate carpooling and other needs through this Facebook group.
Families planning summer travels are asked to plan trips with the understanding that their camper may be in an evening performance on either the Thursday or Friday of the last week of camp. Missing a performance is allowed but not encouraged, since performing is a big part of the camp experience.
