Vermont-based circus could build summer camp

Posted: Updated:

GREENSBORO, Vt. (AP) - The Greensboro-based Circus Smirkus is a big step closer to building its own summer camp in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom.

Circus Smirkus has received preliminary approval of a $2.5 million tax-exempt revenue bond from the Vermont Economic Development Authority that would be used to build a summer camp in Greensboro.

The Caledonian Record reports Circus Smirkus recently got its Act 250 land-use permit to build the camp on 29 acres of land. It would include two new dormitories and renovations to an existing farmhouse and barn.

Circus Smirkus includes the summer camp and a touring circus.

The camp includes acrobatics, clowning, juggling, aerials and balance.

In past years the Circus Smirkus summer camps have been held at other locations.
