Under the Big Top

Under the Big Top



A healthy future is fostered through the Under the Big Top camps.


Our unique learning environment helps to develop creativity, teamwork, confidence, adaptability, physical activity, problem-solving skills, and effective communication.


Children are given the opportunity to build amazing magic, puppetry and circus skills through age-appropriate instruction.

The camps run Monday through Friday, with free pre-care available at 8:00 a.m. and post-care until 5:15 p.m. There will be a final performance for family and friends spotlighting camp participants. Experienced recreational instructors teach the camps for ages 4-5 and professional performing artists lead the camps for ages 6-17. Register Now!

Are you ready for a "masterclass" in circus arts? Participants must have a minimum 3 years of previous Under the Big Top camp experience. Successful completion of the master class may allow some students to become instructor assistant for the following two weeks of Under the Big Top, for which they will receive an honorarium. Get more information.

A program subsidy is available for qualifying Strathcona County residents through the Recreation Access Program (780-467-2211). If you would like to sponsor a child, please complete the Donations Form.

Be adventurous and come Under the Big Top for a creative and fun experience this summer!
