Circus Camp, owned by Samantha Dwyer, is a day-camp experience introducing children to circus, performing, and visual arts in a safe and noncompetitive environment. Camper age begins at 5 years old and includes teens. Any level of physical development & skill is welcomed.

As a member of the AYCO (American Youth Circus Organization), USAG (United States of America Gymnastics) and ISERA (International Special Events & Recreation Association), we provide campers with the opportunity to learn something new and exciting every day, while developing their unique skills.

Circus Camp began in 1992 by our Fearless Flying Founder Carrie Heller. Her inspiration and vision is what makes this camp such an amazing experience for thousands of children every year.

Refund policy: At Circus Camp we work throughout the year preparing the best summer camp experience for your children, teaching weekend classes, hosting birthday parties, managing festival attractions, and more.

As a small family-run business, we hire staff, rent venues, purchase & maintain equipment, and many other expenses based upon registrations and deposits we receive. Therefore we can’t issue refunds for deposits, tuitions, before/after care or t-shirts.


Comfortable clothing such as shorts and t-shirts or leotards are best. Tennis shoes are encouraged. Sandals are also good, unless your child is interested in trying the unicycle class, where closed-toe shoes are required. Due to size limitations, the unicycle class is usually for children aged 8 and above.

Circus Camp is all about encouraging your child's imagination, so if they want to wear silly clothes, they can wear silly clothes!

We do have a very strict rule about hats... No sharing hats.

Yes, please have your child bring their lunch.

Our Sandy Springs camp at the Epstein School is a meat-free school. Dairy, cheese, yogurt, fish, eggs, and plant based foods (such as salads) are allowed.

We have a strict No Sharing Food policy to help avoid any food allergy issues. If your child does have a food allergy, make sure to mention it when you register.

Also note the severity. For instance, many times children with peanut allergies can be in the same room as long as they do not come into contact with peanut products. If they cannot be in the same room definitely tell us so we can accommodate.
