We're thrilled to be bringing Circus of the Kids back to Camp Shalom this summer! Circus of the Kids travels around the country, teaching circus arts to children of all ages. It is the only program of its kind in the United States, and the JCC is proud to host the Circus of the Kids. During this week-long Specialty Camp, campers are transformed into CIRCUS PERFORMERS!
In small groups, circus campers learn and practice the art of one of fifteen different circus acts, from trick roller skating, trapeze, fire-eating and aerial ballet to mini trampoline and other circus routines. When campers are not practicing for Circus of the Kids, they participate in a broad range of other circus and camp activities, like the Circus Games, learning how to clown, mime, juggle, arts and crafts, swimming, sports and much more! At the end of the week, the Circus Stars of Tomorrow proudly present a full-fledged, professional circus performance for their fellow campers and community, complete with costumes. This camp will take place at Camp Shalom, Palm Beach Gardens.
There is a 15 camper maximum for campers entering 1st grade.
Spaces will be filled on a first come, first serve basis.
The Circus of the Kids staff places participants in acts based on the camper's performance on Placement Day. Circus staff does its best to ensure all rehearsals are held between the regular camp day (9:00 am - 4:00 pm) – however, due to the nature of the week some practices could be held between 4:00 - 6:00 pm each night.
