Yes! Circus Camp 2022 is all go! We are being busy little bees, working hard behind the scenes at the moment to prepare the info you will need in order to book your tickets. We plan to have the website fully up to date within the next week, or maybe two, definitely by the end of January, and tickets will be on sale from February 21st 2022. How exciting! Please get in touch with Vicki by clicking the button below if you wish to be on our circus camp mailing list, as we will be emailing camp info and booking details asap.
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 each day, we 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 6's, a craft barn for all ages, a 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, charging points for phones etc... lots of 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 welcome arrivals from 9am til 1pm on the Wednesday, with the Welcome Meeting at 2pm, followed by initial getting to know each other circus workshops that afternoon, with the Foolhardy Circus show that evening. The end of week children's performances will be on Sunday late morning and another in the afternoon, after which it will be farewell once again, till next time - although please do stay a further night if you wish, a few families always do and its a really chilled evening sitting around the campfire chatting.
(Likewise, if you are travelling a long distance to get to camp please get in touch as we can have some arrivals on the Tuesday afternoon if necessary.)
We always sell out quickly, so do book your tickets early.
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
