Circus Summer Camps & Intensives


We offer a variety of circus camps for ages 5 - teens! Circus camps are highly physical and also exercise your child’s creativity. Circus camps cover tumbling, trapeze, juggling, theatre, dance and more, and each week finishes with a performance. And remember: we also offer after-care provided by our neighbor, Playdate PDX.

We also offer camps with more specific focus, such as our Aerial Only Camp, Circus Performance Camp and the Summer Performance Intensive.
