Hello Smirkus Family,
Last Friday and Saturday we welcomed our very first campers at 41 Clown Alley! THE OFFICIAL *MAILING* ADDRESS OF SMIRKUS CAMP! These young campers got to experience a taste of Smirkus for one whole day! We love being able to offer a day camp that gives kids a look into the camp experience, without the commitment of staying overnight. After an adventurous day of trying all these new circus sports AND learning to be pie-d in the face, we know these kids ❤ Smirkus Camp. Havi certainly does!
Here’s the Smirkus Recap from Intro to Smirkus Camp Sessions A & B!
At registration Friday and Saturday, kids were excited to arrive and get the day going. We saw smiles everywhere as counselors played games with their groups!
Campers were put into 4 groups for their rotation throughout the day, the Red Noses, Purple Peacocks, Blue Baboons and the Green Elephants. Campers Flora and Juliana worked very hard on their elephant impressions throughout the day.
During warm ups, kids got their bodies moving and stretching to prepare for the day.
At Smirkus Camp, some stretches are a little goofier than others…
After warm ups and stretching, campers were ready to break into their groups and go to their rotations.
At aerials, Eliza used strength and flexibility to hold the straddles on the silks.
A once-in-a-life-time coincidence, Lyra the Camper practiced posing on Lyra the Aerial Hoop!
And wouldn’t you know it, we think these kids love being pie-d and pie-ing their friends!
It was a successful first 2 days of camp and we’re so happy all the future circus performers came to see what Smirkus is all about.
All the best,
