The emphasis of Winnarainbow for Adults is on shared creativity among all participants. Each year’s staff and campers uniquely define the camp experience. Camp Winnarainbow was founded over 40 years ago by Wavy Gravy and others. Our overall performance philosophy emphasizes taking risks in a physically and emotionally safe environment. Drawing from the world of circus and theatrical arts, we teach timing, balance, and a sense of humor. We honor the creative spirit of each camper in an atmosphere of approval and mutual encouragement. We call this The Show Show.

A host of theater and circus art skills are offered for both the accomplished artist and the total beginner.  Campers choose from a wide range of classes and workshops that encourage creativity, skills mastery, personal growth and physical development.  Activities range from physically demanding to “no sweat” for those of you who prefer to take your vacation slow and quiet. 

The Life Show is also a very important part of the Camp Winnarainbow experience. We emphasize building a community environment that supports connection and conversation through the arts for a peaceful, harmonious and sustainable world. For years we have looked at learning and practicing circus and performance skills as a tangible way to teach interdependence and to support individuals in enhancing confidence, inner security and self-expression. We encourage respect for oneself, others, and the environment while valuing the uniqueness of each individual, within the diversity of racial, cultural, economic, and religious backgrounds that comprise our camp community.
