Work Your Core With A Belly Laugh

Come on, admit it. The first time you saw a circus performance you thought,“I wanna do that!”

Well, you can, because circus training isn’t just for kids. Circus Smirkus offers a training camp for adults too, where you’ll study the circus arts inside our authentic European circus tents.

You’ll find it’s an incredible workout and loads of fun and a great opportunity to forge new friendships. Take a break from your routine and run away to the circus set in  the rolling hills of idyllic Greensboro, Vermont.

This fun, flexible program has been specifically created for adults (21+) looking for a beginner or intermediate approach to the circus arts. Interested in stretching your yoga practice to new heights? You’ll love our aerial silks class. Want to go farther in cycling class? Challenge your quads with some unicycling. Bored with your daily power walk? Try it on stilts!

This weekend of circus summer camp, and making new friends, offers physical activity to jump start or continue your fitness regime through daily drills and new circus skills. Whether you’re brand new or interested in building on current training, this camp is an adult fitness and learning experience unlike any other!


For Adults 21 and older

This camp is geared towards adults who are beginner or intermediate circus enthusiasts looking to practice/train with guidance from professional coaches. This camp is not designed for expert performers.

Adult Camp is for those who want to add a unique challenge to their fitness journey and who want to experience an overnight “sleep-away summer camp” vacation!

Circus Smirkus Camp takes place on 35 acres of hilltop pasture in beautiful Greensboro, Vermont. We have have  dormitories that sleep two, three or four to a room. Each dorm has several common areas and is decorated with historical circus memorabilia and props from past Circus Smirkus shows.

Our kitchen and culinary team work around the clock to provide healthy meals using as many quality, locally sourced ingredients as we can find. You’ll be very active so serving food fit to feed circus athletes is paramount to our mission!
