The Circus Barn, Inc.
February 25, 2010
Two years ago I went to Smirkus Summer Camp just for fun. Within the first few minutes I already felt like I was surrounded by a family. The campers and the staff were so supportive, and they helped me build the confidence that led me to audition for the Big Top Tour last year. I had no idea what to expect when I was accepted as a 2009 trouper, but I was amazed by the experience I had. Not only did I learn new skills, I learned to work as a team and work through challenging conditions. The best part was sharing our show with the public and seeing them walk away from our big top with huge smiles on their faces. I came away from this summer a stronger, harder working person. The people I travelled with are my second family, they picked me up when I was down and brought out the best in me.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
Working hard and seeing the pay-off in the faces and comments of people who saw the show.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
the most supportive, fun-loving, hard-working people I will ever meet.
