Explore acrobatics, physical theater, juggling, stilt-walking and your own imagination in this active and inclusive camp. Build confidence, grace, and strength as you discover your inner circus performer. Collaborate with peers and directors to create a unique Circus Show for family and friends. All levels and abilities welcome.
Circus Theater Camp empowers students to take supported risks, build trust, express themselves, and collaborate with peers and directors to create a unique show at the intersection of theater and circus arts. We foster an inclusive and supportive community that shines a light on each individual’s strengths and lifts each participant by virtue of shared experience and achievement. We meet students where they are, offer opportunities to learn new skills, and mentor them as they follow their interests, find their voice, and make space for the interests and voices of others. As such, our curriculum is intersectional and adaptable for any student who needs accommodations. If your child would benefit from accommodations please let us know.
Circus Camp at Grout will follow the same COVID-19 protocols as the camps that take place at Echo Theater, with the exception of the COVID Vaccine requirement for students. We currently require masks to be worn when indoors. Masks are optional when outdoors. We will notify registered families of any changes to COVID policies. | Please read all COVID-19 FAQs and updates here.
