Monkey Juggling!

Stretch Your Creative Muscle

My Nose Turns Red’s summer circus camps are highly engaging and challenge youth to balance, manipulate objects and build human pyramids – all activities needed to build hand-eye coordination. Circus campers play a wide variety of games that build teamwork, cooperation, trust, and friendship.

Tightwire-walking builds balance, focus, and persistence.

Circus camps for 4-7-year-olds are half-day, run concurrently with all-day camps for older youth, and have their own coaches who provide fun activities and circus equipment just right for their size. Campers learn stilt-walking, (low) tightwire walking, hooping, rolling globe, rola bola, and circus games.

Balance: The Rola Bola

Circus camps for 7-16-year-olds also include gym (German) wheel, juggling, pyramids, diabolo (Chinese yo-yo), physical comedy, and games.

Two-Week Summer Circus Camps

Advanced Balance: Learn to ride a unicycle!

The Intermediate/Advanced camp features special guest gym wheel coach Sam Sake from Chicago. Skills include unicycle, wheel, manipulation, aerials, and balance. If you have not attended the intermediate/advanced camp in the past, please contact Stever Roenker, rednose@fuse.net.
