This summer your child doesn’t have to run away to join the circus. Their circus dreams can come true right here in Edmonton with Cirquetastic Summer Camps. Your child can leave the spectating to someone else as they develop the skills to be the star in the centre ring!
The 2022 Cirquetastic Summer Camps will take place weekly beginning July 4, 2022 and are offered for ages 8 and up with no previous experience necessary. Together with other camp attendees, your child will help choose a theme for their week at circus camp. In the past campers have chosen themes such as Harry Potter, Marvel, Greatest Showman and Greek Gods. The fun continues with lessons in juggling, handstands, trampoline, aerials, acrobatics, stilt-walking, dance and more!
While your kids might start practicing to be contortionists at circus camp, your wallet won’t have to! The weekly Cirquetastic camps are affordable with your choice of 2 hour, half day and full day options. Plus, it’s money well-spent knowing that your kids are staying active, trying out new skills, and making new friends during camp.

Is your child timid or afraid to try new things? Perhaps circus camp could be the perfect solution to pull them out of their shell and help them overcome their fears! Cirquetastic owner and lead instructor Lyne Gosselin is a veteran of the circus with over 20 years of experience and she’s passionate about helping kids conquer their fears and explore their creativity. She’s both taught at and performed with l’École de cirque du Québec. Locally, you may be familiar with her from her involvement with Firefly Theatre or from her performances at festivals including the International Children’s Festival of the Arts.
Summer 2022 could be the start of your child’s journey to the big top. Reserve their summer camp spot at Cirquetastic and who knows, maybe one day they’ll be the headlining star of a Cirque du Soleil show!
