See below for details.
CAMP OVERVIEW AND COVID-19 UPDATES
COVID-19 update to camps:
We will continue to follow CDC and OHA health and safety guidelines closely and adapt our camp protocols accordingly as the situation evolves. We have decreased the capacity of camps in order to make social distancing possible. Each camper will have their own mats, aerial equipment, and plenty of space. We will conduct daily health checks, clean and disinfect all equipment and surfaces between camps, encourage staff and campers to wash their hands regularly, and send any campers and staff showing signs of illness home.
All ETC Camps include single-point trapeze, aerial silks, acrobatics, physical theater, creative problem-solving, and fun! Students build confidence, grace, and strength as they explore their potential on the mats and in the air! Campers collaborate with peers and directors as they play physical theater games and create a unique end-of-camp video for family and friends.

Camp Description: This popular camp brings together the fun physical challenges of circus with the endless potential of storytelling to make an action-packed week of Circus Theater. Each day begins with an imagery-based warm-up, preparing campers to jump, swing, spin, and CREATE! Next, we explore physical theater concepts, playing with individual creative expression as well as collaborative group challenges. The majority of camp is spent building skills on single-point trapeze, aerial silks, acrobatics, juggling, and more. Our excellent student/teacher ratio allows us to challenge and support each student. Throughout the week students are encouraged to add their imaginations to the physical disciplines, tumbling like ninjas, spinning like cyclones, and collaborating with peers and directors to create imaginative end-of-camp videos for family and friends! All-day camps include a trip to the park (weather permitting) and a more in depth exploration of circus theater, often including mask-making, obstacle courses, stilt-walking, and outdoor circus play.

Every session will consist of proper warmups/stretching, physical conditioning/drills, and developing specific skills. Training is tailored to students’ various abilities to help them grow through intense noncompetitive activity, while encouraging positive collaboration, creative movement, and respect for all people and places. On our final day, each student will have the opportunity to video capture their progress to star in their own fun parkour video, edited to music and sent out to parents shortly afterwards. Though we train inside sometimes, Parkour is an outdoor sport and being outside is a key element to this camp. We will be training at Sunnyside Park near the theater for the majority of our time. No previous parkour/acrobatic/gymnastic training necessary. All levels welcome. Pk4all.org
