Summer Camp at Westchester Circus Arts | Kids Out and About Westchester

Summer Camp at Westchester Circus Arts

A magical summer under a REAL Big Top Tent! Our real Circus Tent is set on the sprawling grounds of the Harvey School in Katonah, NY. This inspirational backdrop is the setting in which we inspire our campers to go after their dreams. Campers of all skill levels, from absolute beginner through advanced have a unique opportunity to train and perform with circus professionals. Under the magic of the Big Top, campers are encouraged to dream without limits, expand their skill sets, and express their individuality. Circus Camp is perfect for boys and girls ages 6-18 who seek an intensive performance-based summer experience. We have program offerings for beginners-advanced students.

Every week ends in an exciting BIG TOP SHOW for friends & families to attend. We fire up the popcorn and cotton candy machines, bring out the sequence, lights, and music, and put on a show that brings out the very best in your kids. Our Big Top Shows place campers in the center ring for a confidence-building experience that is sure to last a lifetime.
