Smirkus Camp July Fourth Celebration

This blog post was written by Katja Orlow-Ornstein, Camp Program Director and PR Intern

Session II started off with a bang, quite literally. Campers were able to watch the town fireworks on Monday night create an impressive display over Caspian Lake. The views from camp are amazing, and despite the slightly later bedtime, it was well worth it.

The weather has finally dried up a bit, and the sun has made many appearances throughout this session. The days have been filled with our fun and zany circus activities as well as a large variety of  non-circus related games, and of course, themed dinners.

The campers have loved partaking in aerials, juggling, clowning, and acro in our beautiful tents along with other choice time activities in the afternoons. Our campers have enjoyed honing in on their other circus skills during choice time and improvements are being made in unicycling, 5 ball juggling, and more.

Session II over the Fourth of July is always a blast. This Tuesday, campers dressed up to an “America” themed dinner and our cooks made delicious American themed foods including a homemade fruit cake. The campers continued their celebration and fun with a traditional camp campfire complete with s’mores, songs, and sparklers.

Happy 4th, everyone, from the campers, coaches, and counselors at Smirkus Camp!
