Motion Magic summer camps integrate Yoga, Circus, Gymnastics and Creative Movement. Our non-competitive program offers children a chance to experience fitness through creative expression and group collaboration. Children will learn tumbling, partner acrobatics, balance pipe, walking globe, stilts, juggling and other prop manipulation and clowning and physical theater. Props include hula hoops, poi, ribbons, flower sticks and more. Arts and crafts will be woven into our day as the children make juggling balls, masks, puppets, ribbon sticks and learn face painting. The camp will culminate with a show for family and friends.
Camps are located at The Portland Village School 7654 N Delaware Avenue and Buckman Elementary 320 SE 16th Ave.

Wizards, Elves, and Faeries: An Adventure through Buckman's Magical Realm
June 28th-July 2nd
Through movement and story-telling we will bring to life our own mythical creatures. Half of the day will be spent hearing and creating wild tales of fantasy, venturing outside of the classroom in search of magical ingredients, and developing our own beasts. The other half will be spent bringing these stories to life through movement, theater, tumbling and instruction in the magical arts of hula hoops, feathers, ribbons and wands. The week will culminate in a fantastical performance for the parents.
The Big Top: The Spectacles and Stories of the Circus
July 19th- 23rd
Run away and join the circus! In addition to circus skills we will explore the wacky characters that live under The Big Top. We will clown, juggle, stilt walk, make human pyramids, balance and tumble our way through half the day. We will delve deeper into the stories surrounding the people of the circus through silly skits, marionette-making, role playing and outrageous story-telling during the rest of the day. Don't forget to attend the circus show for friends and family at the end of the week!
