Coronavirus Update: 20 July 2020
We are delighted to announce that we are running our Summer Youth Circus Camp for 2020! With revised age, timing, and group restrictions and further health & safety precautions, we will be running a Covid-secure Camp that focuses on non-contact, outdoor activities.

You can read about how YCC will run as an adapted Covid-Secure activity, in our Policies & Procedures Document (PDF).

Our annual circus extravaganza is back! After the sell-out success of our holiday camps in 2018 & 2019, we’re excited to launch our Summer 2020 Youth Circus Camp! Join us in the summer holidays for a jam-packed week of circus fun at our Kingswood site in Bristol. Youth Circus Camps are open to regular Youth Circus attendees and beginners – no previous experience necessary!

Children aged 6-18 hone ground-based and aerial skills at our Kingswood site – home to our Foundation, Bachelors and Masters students during term time – and learn a mixture of acrobatics, manipulation & equilibristics, aerial, craft and performance. They also take part in specialist sessions – in the past these have included Flying Trapeze, Chinese Pole and Tumbletrack – as well as showcasing their newfound skills to family & friends at the end of the week.

For 2020, children will be grouped in small dedicated groups with other children in their age range.

We also have a limited number of bursaries available for children from low-income households who may otherwise not be able to attend. We have now filled our bursary places for 2020, but for future opportunities you can apply for bursaries here.
