2022 SESSIONS

While each session has a specific theme, we always offer lots of time outside, circus arts, visual art and space to work on a collaborative performance at the end of the week. Some weeks we may field trip to swimming areas or other locations. Ours is a child-directed program; when kids are especially excited about something, their interest helps shape the curriculum.

Aftercare is available until 5PM for an additional $10/ 30 min

Spirit Animals and Circus Creatures

Do you have a favorite animal? Come teach us about it! In this session we will get to share the animals that inspire us, learn about the animals around us, and create fantastical costumes, puppets and stories based on the creatures we love. Our focus is on face-painting, costuming and circus. We will be playing on aerial apparatus, walking on stilts, clowning, juggling, hot-gluing and dancing. Have you ever seen A rainbow giraffe? A giant miniature poodle? A fire-spinning axolotl? Come bring them to life!

During this session we will practice primal skills and learn new ways to relate with the natural world. Weather permitting, we build fires, shelters, practice archery, knife skills, learn about water filtration, spend time in the mountains, identify plants and animals. We will listen and feel the forest, allowing time to be wild and time for quiet reflection.

 

*On certain days during this session, children are allowed to bring pocket, camping, and whittling knives to camp. These are “checked” in the morning. A teacher will distribute them when we are practicing knife skills and then collect them again until the end of the day.

Monsters, Magic, and the Exquisite Corpse

This is the ultimate collaboration. We will be creating stories and monsters together in an ongoing game of Exquisite Corpse (this is when you draw a creature or write a story in sections with other people, but the next person does not know what the previous person drew or wrote). We will be sharing (and bringing to life) our favorite monsters, costuming, and using recycled materials to build a giant puppet inspired by our creations. At the end of the week we will transform the cottonwoods into a monster’s habitat and delight grownups with a spooky circusy extravaganza.

Session 4:
June 27th - July 1st

The Great Outdoorsy Game Show

This is a fun, theatrical approach to our survival session. As we learn primal skills such as archery, how to handle camping knives, shelter-building, plant identification, fire building, and campfire cooking, we will also get to share our knowledge and see how our grown-ups fair in an outdoor-inspired game show obstacle course we create together.

Sky Heroes and the World of Tomorrow

Do you love destroying and rebuilding things? Are you interested machines and creatures that travel through the air? In this circus adventure, we will play in trees, learn how to use tools, and design and build an amazing structure out of recycled materials. At the end of the week we will share an interactive experience for parents that showcases the wild creativity that has gone into our sky realm. 

Session 6:
July 18th - July 22nd
Underwater Adventure
