What is Circus Camp?
Circus Camp is a family circus skills camp aimed primarily at home educating families, all set in a beautiful field near Watton in Norfolk, with camping in the adjacent field. We (Sarah & Cosmo from The Foolhardies) home educate our youngest son, so we like to put this event on to bring together more people to meet and play circus with us!
It is a relaxed, safe, fun filled week with dedicated age-specific circus skills training workshops for the participants between 10am and 4pm Wednesday to Saturday, culminating in performances to show off what you’ve learnt. No previous circus experience is needed, just the desire to have a go!
After the workshops, we’ll have other circus related activities (including taster circus skills sessions for all adults and any non-participating children over 9 years), and then fab evening circus shows, talent shows, discos, storytelling and more, followed by campfire stories, singing and acoustic music, plus a circus fire skills display too.
There is also a colourful circus inspired area for the under 4s, a craft barn for all ages, our circus cinema in another barn, and other facilities including our fab cosy info tent with free tea and coffee all week, sofas to lounge on, free hugs and good conversation with other home-ed families, plus a small shop selling circus equipment and a few small pocket money items.
We’ll be welcoming arrivals from 12pm to 5pm on the Tuesday, with the Welcome Meeting at 7pm kicking off the evening’s entertainment. This will give everyone time to set up camp and settle in before workshops begin on Wednesday morning. For the first time this year, the Panic performance will be on Saturday afternoon, and the Foolhardy performance will be on Sunday morning after our Sunday Breakfast, leaving Sunday afternoon free to leisurely pack up camp.
We always sell out quickly. There is a one month priority booking period for home-ed families, then if there are any places left, we will offer them to non-home ed families. We keep a waiting list for non-home-ed families who enquire, so it is worth getting in touch as soon as bookings open, to be high up on the list.
Ok, well, much to organise and all very exciting. Anyone who wishes to get involved and help run this event is welcome to get in touch. We love helpers!
See you all at camp.
Sarah, Cosmo, Vicki and Lucas xxxx
