Has your child ever wanted to run away and join the circus? If so, the chance of a lifetime is right around the corner. That’s because the Tallahassee, FL-based CIRCUS OF THE KIDS is coming to the JCC this summer for a week of circus fun.
The only program of its kind, world-renowned CIRCUS OF THE KIDS specializes in taking ordinary youngsters and turning them into fire-eaters, trapeze artists, and trick bicyclists. “We are so happy to bring this program back to the JCC,” said Halle Schwartz, the Director of Children, Youth, Teen and Camping at the JCC. “The CIRCUS program takes kids so far beyond their self-imposed limits—you can actually see children grow during the week. The best part? CIRCUS makes sure all kids are successful.”
Registration for this unique camp has already begun. The first 50 children who register will be selected to join the circus. Auditions are slated for June 16, and the spine-tingling, jaw-dropping performances are on June 20 and 21.
Owner/Director Bruce Pfeffer, a Tallahassee native, founded CIRCUS in 1982 after studying at Florida State University’s Flying High Circus. Since then, he has taken his unique program to numerous schools, family resorts, and summer camps, where it has touched the lives of more than 526,000 youngsters.
CIRCUS camp is one of many specialty camps the JCC is offering this summer, including Lego, So You Think You Can Dance, Mosaics, Cooking, Lacrosse/Field Hockey, Tennis, Basketball, Flag Football, and Columbus Crew Soccer.
