Austin’s favorite summer camp is returning for its 22nd year in 2014! Fantastic Magic Camp will have sessions running from June 9 – Aug. 22 at Highland Mall. Kids will learn magic tricks, juggling, how to ride a unicycle, puppetry, arts, performance skills and more!


Camp is divided into five 2-week sessions, and one 1-week session:

  • June 9 – 20
  • June 23 – July 4
  • July 7 – 18
  • July 21 – Aug. 1
  • Aug. 4 – 15
  • Aug. 18 – 22

Two-week sessions cost $550 and the final, 1-week session costs $275. Camp runs from 9 am – 3 pm, with early morning childcare (starting at 8 am) available at no cost, and after camp care (now dubbed Rehearsal Time) will be available from 3 – 6 pm available for an extra $100/week. Rehearsal Time will be an opportunity for campers to practice everything that they have learned that day, with the help and guidance of counselors and staff!

Do512 Family editor, Jamie Jett, has sent her son to Fantastic Magic Camp twice now, and she says she’s planning on sending him this summer as well.

“My son has always had an awesome time at Fantastic Magic Camp. he loves learning new tricks and getting new gadgets and toys every day. It has been easy for him to make new friends each time. The kids seem very excited to be there and all of the counselors, students and teachers are genuinely interested in magic, as most of them are performers. He is going back this year and he can’t wait,” Jett said.

Each day there will be a magic class, a juggling class and a puppetry class. There are always other activities rotating as well, and they vary from session to session so if your child attends multiple sessions, they will participate and learn a variety of trades. Other classes include carnival games, clown classes, balloon twisting classes and much more.

Kids will see an actual live magic show every day at 2 pm during camp. These shows are open to the public and are performed in the Highland Mall. Read about our experience at one of last year’s magic shows and see why this camp is so amazing!

If your child has shown any interest in magic, sign them up for this camp, you won’t regret it!
