Habima is Hebrew for “the stage,” and Habima Hess is the name for our Circus Camp.
This summer we’re offering three sessions of circus camp! Each session is 2 weeks long.
You’ll learn a variety of circus arts in this intensive program: ball walking, plate spinning, poi (balls on strings), diabolo (Chinese yo-yo), acrobatics, rope climbing, silks, juggling, tightrope walking, and more.
Each 2-week session culminates in a performance for family and friends in the APJCC Auditorium at 2:30pm on the last Friday of the camp session, complete with costumes, make-up, music, props and circus equipment.
For circus campers in grades K-2nd, we provide a special program that is half-day circus, half-day traditional camp. Campers get all the fun and excitement of the circus program in the morning and follow it up in the afternoon with traditional camp activities such as swimming, art, and science. Campers in grades K-2 will still be included in the end of session show.
For circus campers in grades 3rd-6th, we offer a full-day circus camp experience so that they can perfect their circus skills.
- Circus Session 1: 6/25-7/6 (no camp 7/4)
- Circus Session 2: 7/9-7/20
- Circus Session 3: 7/23-8/3
Extended care outside regular camp hours is available for an additional fee.
