Intensive Summer Camps
This summer camp in the form of a one or two-week intensive workshop allows young people ages 9 to 12 or 13 to 17 to experience professional training in circus arts. During their stay, participants receive a solid grounding in the demands of the various disciplines, and begin to learn effective training and personal motivation skills. At the end of the camp, participants who wish to apply for one of the School's programs can register for an entrance examination. If selected, the candidate will be able to integrate the preparatory program or the Circus and High School Studies program in August.

- Option 1 - Day Camp from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
