All kids are to be brought into a room. A mad will be sitting there. The mad will tell the kids that half of the people who work at the circus have quit, and they need to hire some new people so that they don’t have to close down.

Job applications will then be handed out. The kids will have to choose an answer to each of the questions.

Once that is complete all kids will be brought into the circus.

Everyone is unique and has there own roles to play. We need to figure out for ourselves what we should do (That’s why we’re giving you another chance to try the stations). If we all work together and do our own parts we can make this the most awesome camp ever!

General Info: In every ROUND a station corresponds to one of the answers to the question.

            Eg. During ROUND 1, the kids who answered (a) to question 1 in the job application      will go to Station 1. The kids who answered (b) to question 1 in the job application             will go to Station 2. Etc.

To coordinate the stations and kids, the mads have been split into 4 groups (A, B, C and D).

Groups A and B will run stations.

Group C are group leaders.

Group D are in charge of atmosphere, they will be dressed up as clowns and do things like juggle, unicycle and hand out popcorn.

There will also be one general supervisor to time keep and watch over.


            Group A: Nine mads:

                                    Pair 1:

                                    Pair 2:

                                    Pair 6:

                                    Pair 7:

                                    Triplet 8:


Info: The mads will run each station in pairs or triplets in each of the ROUNDs, then in free play the pairs split up and run each station by themselves. The triplets have stations which need more mads. During the free play, they will still split, but into a pair and single, and a member of Group C will cover

            Eg. Amalia and Shoshana both run Station 5 in ROUND 1 and Station 12 in ROUND 3.             Then during free play, Amalia runs Station 5 and Shoshana runs Station 12


            Group C: Four mads:






Info: Before each ROUND all kids and Group C will go to a predefined gathering spot. Then watch mad will represent an answer to each of the questions in the job application (a - d). Make sure to check the kids job applications to make sure they aren’t lying.

            Eg. Yossi represents (a). Before ROUND 1, all kids who answered (a) will go to Yossi.    He will then take those kids to Station 1 and act as group leader.


            Group D: Four mads


Info: Walk around and make it awesome.

            Eg. Hand out popcorn. Take kids aside and do magic tricks. Crack jokes. Juggle. Choose music. Do whatever you do best.


            General supervisor: One mad


Info: Keep time and make sure everything runs to plan.

            Eg.Coordinate the arrangements of groups between sections. Help out stations who      made need replacement tech. Etc.
