Juggle Your Way to Circus Camp!

Learn how to juggle, ride a unicycle, be a clown - or all three!
Circus Camps

When summer rolls around, it usually means it's time for camp. And what better camp is there than circus camp? You can fulfill your dream of running away to join the circus, learn all kinds of cool tricks and get plenty of exercise. So pack your bags and turn your vacation into a three ring circus!

Circus Camps - The Warm-up

Whether you're an accomplished athlete or just want to learn how to ride a unicycle, circus camp will help you find your hidden talents. You'll learn how to juggle, walk a tightrope, or even swing from a trapeze! And instead of camp counselors, you'll deal with professional circus performers - cool!

Circus Camps - The Workout

Attending circus camp is a fun way to spend your summer vacation, but it's also a great way to get in shape. Each day starts off with warm-up and muscle strengthening exercises, followed by lessons in balance, acrobatics, aerial and tumbling. Circus training is a fun form of exercise because it involves everything from juggling pies to throwing them!

Circus Camps - The Time-out

Learning to perform exciting circus acts comes with a price. Fees will depend on the length of each camp stay, which can run anywhere from a day to a few weeks. A couple of well-known camps are Circus Smirkus in Greensboro, VT and Camp Winnarainbow in Mendocino County, CA.

Circus Camps - The Cooldown

Just like other camps, circus camps include regular summer fun like BBQ's, campfires and toasted marshmallows. And just like the circus, the camp will hold a grand finale where you get to put on your very own circus! So step into the ring and show off your savvy circus skills!

    What Circus Performer Would You Want to Be?

    • A clown - I want to make people laugh!
    • A trapeze artist - it's cool to swing around.
    • A tightrope walker - balancing acts are the best.
    • The ringmaster - I like being the center of attention.

    What part of it are you scared of? Is it eating in public and around other people, or just eating in general?  What it might be, if it's eating in public you don't like, is social anxiety, or social phobia. You should ask your doctor to check, because if it is, they can offer you ways to help. For instance, they might recommend therapists or group sessions to help ease your fear.  Even if it's just a phobia or, in unlikelier circumstances, an eating disorder, you should still go to your doctor or a therapist so you can try to overcome it. Try doing things that calm you down before these situations as well, like exercise, reading or listening to music (I'm not sure what relaxes you but sometimes these help). Also, you should try to slowly get used to the situations. So don't force yourself to eat straight away when you're out, but slowly start doing so whenever your comfortable with doing so. Unlike your mum wants, you can't just "stop" being scared because that's not how it works.  But right now, please don't force yourself into any of these situations. It's not good for your mental health to be forced to face a phobia of yours often.

    Dear Dish-It, Within the last few years I have felt a bit sick and shaky when we go out to eat. It's not so bad when it's a carvery lunch or something at a pub, but settling down for a chocolate brownie and a milkshake shakes me up. Don't get me wrong, I love going out with Mum, but it's just sitting down and taking a bite. I want to chuck it in the bin. I love eating brownies and stuff at home and I'm pretty healthy. But I refuse to go to the town before lunch in fear. Mum told me I got to stop this or I'm going to develop a terrible phobia.  Please help! ElfyKathy, worried

    She isn't jealous she is just dissappointed that you chose to get lessons when she did to get better . She had to get better to catch up to you so you can enjoyher as your best friend. Then you went ahead and got lessons as if you needed them. She is just upset that you showed off a talent that she didn't have. And she tried to get better to impress you but you got better as well. Which kept her at the stage she will always be at my best friend sings way betyer than me but I try.

    It may be hard but break it down to them we aren't friends but we can be associates. It may leave them a bit dissappointed but tell them we aren't in the same category to be as close as friends.
