Spring Camps Circus Congrats

Posted on 03/22/2013 at 8:58pm

CircusWest is so proud of all the young folks who performed today in our first week of Spring Break camps.

For the first time, we offered a week-long circus camp in Surrey, where 24 children learned to juggle, unicycle, make
pyramids, and jump on a trampoline. Their show was wonderful! We’re looking forward to doing more camps in Surrey this summer.

The Vancouver CircusWest Spring camp culminated in a performance of the Awesome Museum at the PNE Gardens. We were all relieved that the tumbling, trampoline jumping, aerial-silk riding, pyramid building thieves didn’t get away with the fabulous golden crown!

Join the fun at the half-day camps next week or at our many Summer Camps throughout the Lower Mainland. Registration for some of the camps is already open: Click HERE to check the schedule.
