A Day at the Camp
We start each day with announcements and jokes, stories, skits, games, or challenges. Campers then join their group (they are divided by both age and experience) and go their first class (magic, juggling or puppets).
The first class is followed by snack time. Campers will eat snacks they brought from home, while they play board games, share magic tricks, or just run around and drive the staff crazy. With food in their bellies and a good morning workout, the campers are now ready for our more classes.
After two more classes, campers have an hour for lunch, which is also brought from home, and games (board games, group games and free playtime). After lunch, campers get to choose from several different classes during our Bonus Class. The choices are different every day and include choices like balloon sculpting, finger knitting, origami, Fantastic Magic Camp’s own version of Dungeons and Dragons, face painting, improvisational comedy, clowning, and more magic, juggling, or puppets.
We end most days with an exciting performance by a professional variety entertainer. We bring in some of the best magicians, jugglers, and ventriloquists in Texas to perform for our campers.
At least four days out of each two-week session are special theme days. On each of those days, campers, counselors, and staff are encouraged to dress up appropriately.
I’ve sent two children to Magic Camp for several summers. My older daughter is now a counselor. I don’t even consider sending them anywhere else.

My son loves being at Magic Camp! He looks forward to it all year! We can see him evolve during each session. He uses phrases like, “Imagine for a moment that…” and “What would happen if…” regularly. Those are the types of questions we want our child asking! His creativity, imagination and confidence all take a leap after camp.
