It’s official.  Circus Summer Camps are back and enrollment starts now. 

Circus Summer Camps 2022 will run ten week-long sessions of pure concentrated circus! Circus enthusi-artists will cheer each other on to greater heights as they climb, gain strength, and build confidence in aerial emphasis classes. We’ll unlock the secrets of the ancient art of juggling, explore how to bridge physical distances with colossal communication by way of clowning, and take giant steps towards the future on stilts. 

The past years have required us all to live fluidly.  We get that.  Kinetic Arts Center has had great success this year with session-based programming, a continued commitment to small class sizes, and running a limited number of offerings simultaneously in the building.  This strategy in programming will continue into the summer months.    All eligible campers (and coaches) will be vaccinated and everyone will be masked!  

  • We offer two age appropriate programs (see descriptions below):  Ages 8 – 10 and 10+ 
  • Each age group is offered in both an AM (9a-12p) and a PM (1p-4p) camp.
  • Each session runs for one week, Monday – Friday.*
  • Group enrollment is capped at eight.  

Flexible as a Contortionist   

This past year, we have had overwhelmingly positive responses to the flexible programming offered in our Circo Day Camps.  So, we tapped into our inner circus contortionist and now offer the same flexible programming for Circus Summer Camps 2022:  

  1. Want flexibility in your week?  Enroll in either the AM or PM camps by session and age group. 
  2. Stay all day – Enroll in both the AM and PM camps by session.  Add the Lunch Bridge to make your enrollment an all-day event for maximum circus fun and experience.  At checkout you purchase all three (AM, PM and Lunch Bridge) in your age group for the sessions you want to attend

Lunch Bridge — For Maximum Circus Fun – Add the Lunch Bridge to Both an AM & PM Camp Enrollment for the Week.  Your circus star wants to stay all day?  Lunch Bridge is open to campers who are enrolled in both the AM and PM camps for the session.  The hour-long lunch period will be a quietly supervised time for campers to chill and relax.  Art stations are open and campers are encouraged to bring books, work on puzzles, and enjoy a visit with new friends.  We will start back up at 1pm recharged and ready for more circus instruction.  Please provide a fabulously wonderful, large, and healthy lunch with lots of protein, good carbs, and small amounts of sugar.

Circus In The Time Of COVID — Our Staff and Coaches are Vaccinated and We Politely Request that all Our Students are Vaccinated, Too.

Kinetic Arts Center’s programs have been successful this past year because of our commitment to small group instruction, session-based classes, limited class offerings running simultaneously, and a diligent adherence to health mandates.  Our Summer 2022 pods will be limited to a maximum of eight (8) masked students and there will be no more than four summer programs on-site at any given time. Updated COVID vaccination is required for every eligible student, coaches, and staff. 

Parents/guardians will be asked to remain in vehicles and our staff will escort summer program participants to their pods. This way, we can avoid congestion and simplify our check-in/check-out process for you.
