Meanwhile, Over at the Circus...



“Everybody starts somewhere. They see artists and counselors who started just like them. When I started, I couldn’t even get on a unicycle. The kids want to work hard, because they can see the end result. And the counselors and older campers set the scene, they make it feel safe. Everyone is always very supportive of everything. I was working on self-mounting the giraffe [jumping onto a six-foot-tall unicycle], and I tried for the entire day. When I finally got it, Evan [the unicycling artist] stopped and told the whole class and everybody clapped.”- Echo, 14
