Hello Smirkus Family!
Yesterday was Registration Day and with many happy screams and hugs from friends who haven’t seen each other in a year and are excited to be back at Smirkus Camp, Session IV officially began!
After the counselor rule skit, get-to-know-you games, and dinner, campers settled in for the night accompanied by sounds of a distant thunderstorm. As we say, if there isn’t mud, it’s not circus! Luckily the sun has been shining bright today and campers are getting acclimated to camp and going through rotations and working with coaches to assess their interests and skill levels.
Session IV campers are ready to show their stuff and I’m already so impressed with the level of circus skills these kids have! With pointed toes and eager spirits, these kids have tumbled, somersaulted, cartwheeled and stretched their way through the morning. Check out a few of my favorite shots from today and don’t forget to take a peek at the Flickr account for many more photos!
The mantra for this session is “WE LIVE CIRCUS!” Campers and staff shout this in unison every morning before heading off to rotations. As Danny Frank said today, we don’t just DO circus, we LIVE it. It’s the truth – here at Smirkus Camp we live and breathe and think and feel all things circus. We’re a family and for the next two weeks, we are here together to create that Smirkus magic for campers.
Please continue to check the blog and Flickr account for a glimpse into that magic!
All the best,
