What You Need To Know

Open to all levels: No previous experience necessary!

Expert tutors: All our tutors are professional circus performers & teachers who specialise in working and engaging with children, while helping them grow through circus. Our camps are run by the same tutors who run our regular classes, plus specialist visiting tutors, and all tutors are DBS checked.

Perfect surroundings: Our Kingswood site has fully equipped studios, several large outdoor spaces, and professional circus equipment.

New things for everyone: Whether they’ve already got a good knowledge of circus or haven’t tried it before, students will always make new discoveries at camp! It might be a specialist session that we don’t do in regular classes, a new trick, or newfound confidence to push themselves a bit further.

Optional After Camp Club: If you need to pick up later than 3.30pm, book for our After Camp Club running until 5pm daily!
After Camp Club is a supervised recreation session (not circus skills) and costs just £5 per day.

Bursaries

Every year, we aim to offer a number of fully funded Holiday Camp spaces to students who may otherwise find the cost prohibitive. If you would like to apply for a bursary for Holiday Camps and/or regular classes please complete this short online form. We will be in touch with applicants in June 2021.

Please note that due to Covid-19 restrictions, we cannot 100% guarantee a paid space if your application is unsuccessful – however, we will do our best to fit you in. If you would prefer to book and secure a space, we will offer a refund if you are granted a bursary.

Covid-19 Restrictions

We’ve now run two very successul Covid-secure Youth Circus Camps with adapted activities, social distancing, and additional cleaning and safety measures. If you’d like to check out our most recent measures, you can watch our Easter Camp intro video and reading our Easter Camp info pack – but remember, these details may change slightly for Summer Camp and we’ll update you nearer the time depending on current guidance.

Most Youth Circus Camp activities are possible with adaptations such as additional crash mats and distance spotting equipment, and we’ll make you aware of any changes to our programme as early as possible.
