Children love magic but they want to do more than just watch.

They want to learn to perform magic!

Learning magic is a lot of fun and a real confidence builder for children. Learning magic teaches them a theatrical art form with presentation skills. This fun fast-paced one-week half-day and full-day camps available) class presumes no prior experience with magic. Students are provided all the training materials and magic props. Small classes use demonstration and hands-on training. On the last day of the camp, students become star performers in a magic show for parents and relatives.
