JUGHEADS is in its 3rd decade of summer juggling camps, offering instruction and mentorship to beginners through experts entering grades 3–12 (plus the summer after HS graduation). Our summer kicks off with two Mega All–Day Juggling Camps (June 5–6) designed for school-year Jughead members and experienced campers only. Lunch and five snack/beverage items are provided at these Mega Camps. Thereafter, five weeks of half–day camps are offered. The morning sessions (9 pm–Noon) are geared toward beginning/intermediate jugglers, while the afternoon sessions (1 pm–4 pm prioritize advanced/expert jugglers (e.g., more self–directed and working on higher standards, routines, club passing patterns, etc.). Two snack/drink items per half–day camp are included. (Kids staying all day may have an extra snack/drink and eat bag lunches together at Noon.)
Kids may sign up for a week of morning or afternoon sessions according to their skill level. Summer Punchcards are available in half–day increments of 1, 5, 10, and 20 punches. Punchcards are valid June 5–July 7 and may be shared by siblings, allowing for maximum flexibility. (Attendance is kept on a master list; there is not a physical punchcard your child will need to carry.) The Summer Juggling Season Pass is for jugglers wanting to immerse for five weeks—all 46 morning and afternoon half-day camps from June 6–July 1, including both Mega Camps (June 5–6). Summer Juggling Season Passes may not be shared by siblings.
After a relaxed arrival of campers, Coach Paul kicks off every morning with a camp meeting at 9:10 am: personal introductions of leaders and new campers; skills demos; goal-setting; and record-sharing. Campers enjoy dedicated, supervised use of two main areas: The Gathering Space (aka “The JugCave”) and The Commons, with optional juggling outside (with leaders). We take group snack breaks at 10:30 am and 2:30 pm, during which we study juggling videos and occasionally watch live performances by campers working on routines. Our camps are “continuous progress”– beginners aren’t pushed too hard, and experts aren’t held back. Campers’ efforts largely equal personal fulfillment.
Founder & Director Paul Arneberg leads the summer camps and staff. He also coaches every morning, with daily afternoon help from Jughead grad and Elite & Ultimate Club Coach Tom Gaasedelen. In addition, varsity-level Jughead Assistants offer diverse teaching styles, experience, skills and mentorship; student Volunteers (Assistants–in–training) fill in the gaps for campers and tasks needing extra attention.
