Toronto Circus Centre (TCC) Summer Camps lets kids spend their summer experiencing life under the Big Top! These day camps offer an amazing way for kids to be physically active while having fun in a non-competitive environment. As their experienced coaches encourage the kids to try every type of activity and apparatus, you will be so amazed at how much your child can learn in just a week of circus training.

Kids spend the week at TCC participating in exciting circus arts activities: jumping, spinning, flying, and laughing together! During a full week of fun, kids participate in numerous circus acts, including aerial trapeze, hoop, rope and silks. There’s also juggling, floor and partner acrobatics and clowning. With so much variety in the circus, campers can build their confidence with the different activities and discover new talents. Kids can both diversify their interests or focus on the apparatus they are best suited to during the immersive session.

Summer Camp 2023 (Ages 4½ to 13)

Located in Leaside at Toronto Circus Centre’s newly renovated gym, the aspiring acrobats will tumble, swing, climb, and juggle, with plenty of time for clowning around! There is no need to worry if the participants do not have any previous circus class experience as everyone is welcome. Dedicated and experienced coaches can adjust each child’s direction to their individual skill level. Therefore, new students learn the basics while more experienced junior acrobats expand their circus repertoire. Throughout camp, kids receive close guidance through the action of the specialty coaches. These are professional circus artists from all circus arts disciplines who share the joy of training up-and-coming circus stars.

Camps run Monday to Friday from 9:00am to 4:00pm, while before and after care is also available. There are extra indoor and outdoor activities included in the fun-filled daily schedule (weather permitting), plus two snack breaks and a lunch break. Even with all the many circus activities, it is still important for kids to get plenty of fresh air head so they go outside to the garden for crafts and games. While all the kids play together in the same gymnasium, TCC groups children with peers closest to their age range and skill level. This is helpful for both their comfort level and skill advancement. They can also accommodate requests to group participating friends together, which is extra special for kids to spend summertime with their buddies!

The circus camp groups work through the week toward building a show with help from the skilled and trained circus professional staff. Finally, at the end of the camp week (on Friday at 4:00pm), the week’s events culminate in a FREE end-of-week show for friends and family. The kids are always so proud to demonstrate what they have learned. Don’t miss this inspiring and exhilarating event!
