Thank you so much for booking your child into our first ever holiday camp in Hitchin, we are SO excited to meet new members of the Showtime Circus Family! This welcome pack will hopefully answer any of your questions, but please do not hesitate to email if you have any further questions too! Our classes are jam packed full of fun, and there are a wide range of skills to be learnt.
Your camp circus leader in Hitchin is Naomi Noir, with another teacher, Carnival Cal, they will be assisted by Charlie. All of our teachers are DBS and have up to date first aid and safeguarding certifications.
We are at:
Hitchin Boys School, building number 3 in the image.
There is parking at the venue.
If you do not wish for pictures/videos of your child to be put on Social media, PLEASE make this clear to the teacher upon drop off if you haven't already stated it on booking.
If you do, please add us on instagram/facebook (Jolly Jess facebook profile is for parents only!) so you can see what your children are getting up to!
Please dress your child in clothing suitable for moving in! We always say a t-shirt long enough to tuck in as we will be upside down for LOTS of the class or a leotard! Long sleeves and leggings are better.
Please keep the belongings you bring with you to a minimum, however, if the children are a little anxious/worried then they are absolutely welcome to bring a soft toy with them that reminds them of home so that they feel comfortable.
Pack a reusable water bottle as the children will need to be hydrated and well energised!
We are a NUT FREE ZONE due to allergies - and though there are none booked on this week, please be mindful anyway. Please pack some nutritious snacks and lunch, with a refillable water bottle.
There will be a VERY informal showcase at 3:30pm on the Friday where parents are welcome to come in and watch what the children have been up to all week! Please do come along and support!
The beautiful art of forming shapes with your body, while suspended from height, either on a hoop, rope, or silks.

An amazing skill which uses advanced hand-eye co-ordination.
It is scientifically proven that circus skills can greatly assist in the development of children’s brains, as well aiding in the growth in communication and social skills.
