Circus Camp is such a high-quality, enriching program, the likes of which children in Moab do not often have the opportunity to participate in. Jens and his crew are great with the children; the amount that they learn in one week is very impressive! I can not recommend the Circus camp enough. We are truly lucky to have such an outstanding program come to Moab each year. — — (Annie Thomas camp parent 2017-2020)
Phoenix Youth Circus Arts will return for its fifth summer in Moab, Utah in July 2021! We will once again be in the City Gym for two weeks in July. We were able to hold camp successfully and safely in Moab in July 2020 (in the midst of the Covid pandemic) – and while the pandemic situation is not fully resolved, we believe we will be able to run a safe camp again this year. We will, of course, monitor the situation and adopt prudent practices to keep everyone safe and healthy.
Session 1: Monday July 19– Friday July 23
Session 2: Monday July 26 – Friday July 30
(Attend one session or the other or attend BOTH sessions)
Camp Hours: 9AM – 3PM (drop off begins at 8:30AM)
Location: City Gym, Center St, Moab, Utah
Who can sign up? kids ages 7 – 16 (Older kids can inquire about being youth assistant counselors)
What will the kids do? Campers will learn all the circus basics – juggling of different forms, acrobatics, balancing, aerial skills (such as silks, Spanish Web, trapeze) and clowning. Each camper gets to try all the different skills and then towards the end of the week they choose two skills to specialize in. The last day of camp finishes with a show for family and friends!
Cost: Circus camp sessions are $200 per week. Discounts are available for kids attending both weeks of camp and for siblings attending the same session. Limited scholarships will be available for some campers whose families need financial help at a rate of $75 per week. Contact Jens (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information on scholarships.
Payment: Registration and payment for the Moab, Utah camp can be done via credit or debit card by clicking here . Payments are made to the “Technical Assistance Partnership of Arizona”. (TAPAZ is PYCA’s fiscal sponsor). Payments can also be made by personal check made out to “TAPAZ” and mailed to the contact address on this website.
Cancellation policy – Full payment is due to secure your spot and register for camp on our credit card platform. If PYCA is forced to cancel the camp for any reason, you will receive a full refund. If you need to cancel your registration, a full refund can be given up to two weeks prior to the start of your camp session. 50% of the cost will be returned if the cancellation is less than two weeks of the start of the camp session for which you have paid.
Registration Form – each camp participant must have a completed registration and liability waiver form by the beginning of camp. You can view and download the form here. For “name of class”, write Moab Summer Day Camp. The form can also be filled out at the first day of camp – but no child will be able to participate fully without a signed waiver.
