Youth Circus Camps

Our popular youth circus camps are suitable for all circus superstars.

With school out we get to do all our favourite circus activities such as juggling, hulahoop, tumbling, cartwheels, plate spinning, flower sticks, diabolo, globe walking, low aerial fabric plus fun group games, guest tutors in clown and performance and lots of creative exploration time.

Our Youth Circus camps run during Easter break and Summer.

When not running youth circus camps, our youth coaches are busy running the youth circus programme all year round.
