“Something about the circus stirs their souls.” Erin MorgensternSign Up Now!
Pre-registration by MAY 29 required
Circus camp is intended to inspire a healthy lifestyle and cultivate the whole child: body, mind emotions and spirit. The circus arts uniquely cultivate the qualities of concentration and balance. Children will learn to work together as a team and individually as they participate in a wide range of activities – and they will have a lot of fun in the process.
‘My daughter enjoyed circus camp immensely and felt very proud of all she was able to do. Thank you for creating such a marvelous and empowering experience.’

Now you can peel your kids’ eyes away from that TV screen, video game or cel phone and enroll them in something fun and healthy: by joining the circus for a day! Led by a fine host of teachers with diverse backgrounds and rich offerings, Still & Moving Center’s Circus Day Camp will engage your child and give them an experience they will never forget.
The Circus skills we will cover include archery, aerial hammock, Lyra (aerial hoop), pantomime, hoop dance, tumbling and juggling, which all engage the child’s body and mind, leading to increased concentration and longer attention spans. Led by Phil Doerr, founder of Archery for All, Circus Camp is designed to build confidence, teach responsibility, sharpens focus and boosts brainpower. He believes that “nothing clears the mind better than shooting a bow.”
The circus is also a great training ground for children to learn responsible social practices, like sharing, compassion and awareness of self and others. Heather Booth, our resident aerial arts teacher, spent years traveling (in such places as Israel, Palestine and Thailand) teaching social circus, which teaches trust and encourages people to find peace. Ki Wagar is a magical teacher of aerial arts, tumbling, hooping and yoga to children. She creates a calm and supportive atmosphere for children to connect with their bodies and grow physically, mentally and emotionally. With a little luck, we may have a surprise visit from Giggles the Clown!
Healthy snacks and vegetarian lunch provided; drop-off at 9am and pick-up at 4:30pm.
Treat your children to a day at the circus where they get to be the stars!
