Where is the summer going?!? It is hard to believe that we are already on day two of Session III. On Sunday, we welcomed 80 campers for our first two-week session of the summer including 4 international campers – 3 campers from Palestine, and 1 camper from France. We also welcomed another clown coach, Kelsey Custard, to camp. She is fresh off the European leg of the Amaluna Cirque du Soleil show – welcome to Smirkus Kelsey and campers!

The energy in the air is electric with a mix of excitement and determination. Both returning and new campers are already in the tents receiving an orientation in the four daily disciplines; Juggling, Aerials, Acro, and Clowning. Monday afternoon was jam packed with fun activities such as choice time in the tents, tie dye, and capture the flag.


We can’t wait to see what fun stories and memories Session III holds.
