Phoenix Youth Circus Arts will hold two one-week sessions of Circus Summer Day Camp in Central Phoenix this summer.  Kids can enroll in one week or the other, or learn even more by attending BOTH weeks of camp.

Here is what some parents said about our camp!

“My daughter had a blast last week! She told me that it was hands down the best camp she’s ever been to! “  N. Lawson (June 2018)

“I can’t emphasize enough how impressed I am by the program you’ve created and your talent both in circus arts and in mentoring children. We are so lucky to have found you and your team. You are a huge asset to the community. My son has a spark in him today I’ve not seen before.” A. Hartman (June 2018)


Session 1: Monday June 3 – Friday June 7

Session 2: Monday June 10 – Friday June 14
(Attend one session or the other or attend BOTH sessions)

Camp Hours: 9AM – 3PM (drop off begins at 8:30AM)

Location: Emerson Elementary School, 915 E 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, 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, with preference given to students of the Phoenix Elementary District #1. Contact Jens (jens@phxyouthcircus.org) for more information on scholarships.

Cancellation policy – Full payment is due to register for camp on our credit card platform. In order to assure we have the correct staffing levels, we will use the following policy: If you need to cancel your registration, 50% of the cost will be returned if the cancellation is within four weeks of the start of the camp session for which you have paid. Between four weeks and one week prior to the start of a camp session, 25% will be returned. Less than one week before the start of camp, there will be no refund.

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 Phoenix 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.
