This summer, kids need time to laugh and time to play. Maybe it’s time for them to meet new people and try new things. It sounds like it’s the perfect time for kids to run away and join the circus! Green Fools Theatre is offering a series of circus camps this summer for aspiring performers, acrobats, and stunt artists. Camps include circus skills from basic juggling and balancing to tightwire and aerial skills. With small class sizes and one-on-one instruction, kids can learn new skills in their areas of interest and achieve amazing things. They will challenge themselves, burn their energy, and build confidence as they master new skills. (There’s even a camp conducted partly in French, too!)
