Phil Ackerly’s Magic Camp “School of Magic for Young Wizards”

Learn magic secrets to amaze and amuse your family and friends!

Session 4: 7/10 – 7/14/17

Throughout this week, campers will learn the secrets that’ll open the door into the world of magic.  Campers will learn sleight-of-hand, redirection, hand and finger exercises, flourishes and magic theory.  They will learn street magic, close-up magic, and stage magic. As we progress each day, campers will learn to fine tune their performing skills into a polished, crowd pleasing presentation.  This will be a fun and safe environment and everyone will love to participate.

We will provide all the materials including magic box, magic wand, magic tricks and take home item each day. This also includes a “mini show” put on by the kids on Friday.
