Summer Camps Still Have Availability!

Summer is right around the corner!  Have you firmed up your family member’s summer camp plans?  Some camps have filled, but others still have availability.

Circus Smirkus has openings for its 1- and 2-day camps in late June.  These are a great introduction to Circus Smirkus, or for kids that have not had an overnight camp experience before.  Campers get a full sampling of what great fun Circus Smirkus camp can be, and they have the chance to “pie” their family members after their final performance!  For more information and to check availability, visit here:

Wonder & Wisdom’s collaboration with The Art House in Craftsbury will also provide exciting opportunities for day campers this summer.  Several of their camps have already filled, but they do still have openings for camps in late July and they maintain a wait list for camps without current availability.   For more information and to register, visit https://wonderwisdom.org/summer-journeys/
