Inner-City Youth Experience Week Full of Circus, Magic

By Brian Schultz

At-risk youth are spending part of their spring break by enjoying circus-like activities inside Gordon Bell High School this week.

More than 250 kids are participating in the Circus and Magic Partnership (C.A.M.P.), an annual event that includes juggling bowling pins, stilt-walking and making puppets.

Children are chosen to participate in partnership with school guidance counselors, the Winnipeg Police Service, social service agencies, and inner-city drop-in and resource centers.

It’s the 16th year C.A.M.P. has been staged, which is put on by the Winnipeg International Children’s Festival.
