our Story: About Flying Colors Trapeze in Stillwater



Our mission is to share the passion and empowerment of Flying Trapeze and Circus Arts with kids of all ages within an encouraging, safe and healthy environment.


"Your Attitude, Not your Aptitude, Will determine your Altitude."    Zig Ziglar

Wise words from Mr Ziglar. We believe that circus arts can be accessible to all people, no matter the physical capacity. We celebrate the effort of hanging by the knees on a low hung trapeze as much as catching a double on the Flying Trapeze. From our perspective the trick that is simple for one can be a momentous accomplishment for another, and we support and celebrate all accomplishments!  It is an attitude and enthusiasm to try that is most important, and we are proud of all of our students efforts. We strive to gently support each individual to set attainable goals for the day and the week, and do everything we can to help them achieve their highest potential.  It is important to us that you, your teen or child feel empowered by and love their camp experience.

"I have three different kids that love to fly- Sherri and the other coaches and catchers at Flying Colors Trapeze School are always encouraging and recognize my children's individuality! My son says, "The environment is all about learning and having fun without pressure." This is such a great opportunity to work on Flying Trapeze skills on a consistent basis in the open air with such a positive coach!"

It is our goal to give participants an amazing experience.  We are mindful of our campers feelings and support them in any way we can.  Our number one priority is safety, but we also understand the importance of our participants "feeling safe"- not just physically, but emotionally and socially. We want participants to be a part of a team, and feel a valued member of the team.  We want every summer camp kid to have an amazing experience!


Flying Colors Trapeze is born from, and in partnership with Embrace Adrenaline Flying Trapeze Club, which has been sharing the passion of Flying Trapeze for 11 years through summer camps for kids and teens, teen club, adult club, private parties and group lessons. You can find more information on becoming a club member and exploring your own trapeze journey.

The Gift of Empowerment

A portion of our proceeds from camps go toward our community enhancement programs, giving the empowerment of circus arts to underserved women and youth in our community. 

In 2017 this was for the teens and young adult in the leadership program at Safe Zone. (Face to Face)

In 2018 we gifted Dream of Wild Health with an event- whose mission is to restore health and well-being in the Native community by recovering knowledge of and access to healthy Indigenous foods, medicines and lifeways. 

If you would like to share ideas of programs that you feel can benefit from our experience please contact Sherri.
