Going Above

Smirkling Sessions A & B

Follow Your Heart

Whether your camper is raring to go, ready for the first day of camp, or visibly nervous about the new experience, the one remarkable character trait that is exhibited by every single camper at Smirkus Camp is bravery. Being brave does not mean you lack fear, bravery means you are willing to try despite your fear. A lot of these young circus stars may be nervous to try new skills, to sleep in a brand new place, and often without knowing anyone. As campers take right-sized risks at Smirkus Camp, they develop confidence, providing them with the foundation to continue to seek out new challenges throughout life.

Congratulations to all the brave campers who took a chance to try something new at Smirking A & B!
