What is Fantastic Magic Camp?
An amazing fully inclusive day camp for children between the ages of 5 and 12 that has been proudly serving Austin families since 1993. We use magic, juggling, puppetry, and a lot of fun to foster empathy and cooperation while also building children’s self esteem.
Every day at Fantastic Magic Camp is filled with fun, adventure and discoveries. The program starts at 9:00 am sharp, and arrival time varies based on location (the Friday before each session, registered parents will receive an email with "everything you need to know," including arrival and drop-off times). Each day includes classes in magic, juggling, puppetry, and other variety arts, as well as a live magic show by some of Austin's best professional magicians. Our day ends at 4:00 pm.
In their magic class, campers learn basic magic skills and secrets. They learn the joy that comes from a trick well performed. Campers are reminded often about the character traits that make a good magician (coincidentally, they are also the traits that make a great human being). Campers learn the benefits of practice, but also learn that it is OK to fail until you get it right.
In their juggling class, campers learn balancing and plate spinning. They learn how to juggle everything from scarves and balls to boxes and rings. They also get to try their hand at juggling sticks and the Diablo (a type of Chinese yo-yo). Towards the end of each session, they also get a chance to work with unicycles.
