past 24 years, Fantastic Magic Camp has
built a community dedicated to embracing and encouraging the uniqueness of
Austin and its children. Since opening its doors in 1993, FMC has been teaching
magic, puppetry, and juggling but the real draw is the magic they work building
confidence and life skills within their campers. Focusing on helping kids cultivate
their inner entertainer makes this camp an extraordinary experience!
Magic Camp gives timid kids a venue to express themselves in ways that they
could have never dreamed and spirited kids a place to focus their energy through
games and robust physical activity. Amongst the fun of learning magic tricks
and how to juggle, building puppets and riding unicycles, they give these kids
an outlet to engage with others without the fear of being turned away. FMC
fosters an environment of inclusion for all types of kids, regardless of
background or ability, a trait uncommon for most camps.
sessions are led by Peter Hinrichs, a professional entertainer with decades of
experience, and a staff of former campers who truly understand FMC’s core
mission. A day at Fantastic Magic Camp is full to the brim with magic camp
specific classes, games, and time to run around and be kids. The campers are
divided by age and experience to be sure they can learn at their pace. The
whole day is scheduled and focused to make the most of the campers’ energy
throughout the day. Most days a week during each session they have special
theme days where everyone is encouraged to dress accordingly and welcome some
of the best magicians, jugglers and ventriloquists in Texas to perform for the
campers and those performances are open to the public so family and friends are
encouraged to join!
Magic Camp is a camp experience unlike any other in Austin. The recipient of
many awards and accolades, the best
way to exhibit their success is how many campers come back year after year.
