Circus Camp Tallahassee

Join us for a one-of-a-kind experience under the Big Top on the Florida State campus. Campers will get a real-life circus experience, working on all the same acts you’ve seen during our performances; Flying Trapeze, Trampoline, Juggling, Tight Wire, Balancing, Cloud Swing and more!

Expect your camper to come home a little dirty, tired, and rumpled after a full day of circus fun!

Our counselors are all current FSU Circus student performers. Camp is available for children ages 7-17. Week-long sessions run Monday through Friday from 9:00am to 3:00pm.

Staff

Our camp counselor staff is comprised of existing members of our FSU Circus cast. They have trained and performed with the FSU Circus for at least a year. Three of our full-time professional staff supervise the camp operation.  

Safety

Safety is our primary concern. Each of our activities are conducted so that they are as safe as possible.  The safety measures employed differ depending on the particular activity. We use safety lines, landing mats and trained spotters to ensure the safety of our participants. 

Camper Showcase

On Fridays at 2:00 pm our campers will have the chance to show off some of their new skills. Parents and guests are welcome. Typically the showcase ends by 3:00 pm.  Parking will be available in the parking lot adjacent to the Circus facility.
