Location: Emerson Elementary School (10th St and Palm Lane, Phoenix, AZ 85006)
Who can sign up?: kids ages 7 – 15

What will the kids do?: Campers will learn all the circus basics – juggling of different forms (flower sticks, balls, clubs, poi, diabolos, plate spinning), acrobatics (tumbling, mini-trampoline, partner acrobatics, human pyramids), and balancing (tight wire, rolling globe, rola bola, stilts, and unicycles). Aerial skills such as Spanish Web, trapeze, and silks will also be offered. Each camper gets to try all the different skills, then towards the end of the week, they choose two to specialize in. The last day of camp finishes with a show for family and friends!

Cost: Circus camp sessions are $200 per week. Limited scholarships will be available for some campers whose families need financial help at a rate of $75 per week, with preference given to neighborhood children and current and past PYCA students.
