Camp ZinZanni is a series of summer workshops offered to Seattle area children ages 5-17. Students learn the basics of circus arts and character development through sessions with some of the world’s greatest circus artists. Camp ZinZanni has also partnered with other cultural and educational institutions such as the Pacific Science Center, the School for Acrobatics and New Circus Arts (SANCA), Seattle Children’s Theatre, the Seattle Repertory Theatre and the Seattle International Film Festival.
