Camp is Full, but we still have funded open spots available for kids in the Benton Harbor School district.

The GhostLight Theatre is proud to bring back this exhilarating day camp!

Kids have fun learning acrobatics, trapeze, juggling and more through the trained staff of CircEsteem Chicago, and end up with greater self-esteem and respect for others. 


Each day campers are divided by age group and taken through 5 fun skill stations. 

Snacks and water are provided. The week culminates in a circus show open to all

friends and family free of charge!
