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!
Spacekitty14: I understand your situation. I have family members who have varying degrees of autism. I understand that it seems unfair to you that more attention goes to your brothers, but you have to remember that they didn't ask for this. They probably don't want to deal with the problems that they are facing. As far as giving up certain types of food, those are just sacrifices that a lot of people have to make. Just try to learn more about their condition and see what you can do to help, then you won't have to feel "left out" or "ignored" by your parents. Just be patient and understand the situation. I hope that all goes well for you and your family
Both of my brothers have autism. I am 12 and a girl. I also have a 3 y/o sister. It always seems like my parents pay more attention to them then me. I don't want to tell them about it because they will think I'm being selfish. But i can't do ANYTHING fun. My little brother is allergic to half the ingredients in most candies, so I can never go trick-or-treating. And I have not had eggs since I was 3. I always have to do everything by myself. How do I deal with this?
