Who ever thought the day would come when we would need to protect clowning?
The Clown Summit at Mooseburger Camp will address the serious issues facing clowns today.
The sad and pathetic trend of the “scary clown” has been poisoning the minds of Americans for years, but recently the problem has gotten worse.
Now it is affecting our livelihood and our vocation.
We need to PROMOTE, PROTECT, AND PRESERVE the Art of Clowning now and for generations to come.
Clowns do a GREAT job at telling jokes, but we do a poor job communicating serious issues.
The time has come for us to join forces in order to decide how we will address the issues facing clowns in this new hostile environment.
Will you help the cause?
Or will you let clowns continue to be bullied?
Don’t let clowning become a dying art.
Join the fight!
We need your voice. We need your ideas.
Here is how you can get involved in the Clown Summit:
The first step is to answer the survey questions:
We are holding the Clown Summit at Mooseburger Camp July 30 – August 4, 2019.
But before that, we already have been gathering ideas and suggestions at Mooseburger Camp this past summer.
You can get in on the ground floor of the movement as it gains momentum. Get involved at the grass-roots level and make sure your voice is heard. Your suggestions will be collected this summer and brought to the 2019 Clown Summit.
If you want to be a part of the discussion, you should fill out the survey.

What are the problems plaguing the clown community?
- “Scary clown” masks and costumes readily available in stores.
- Pranksters dressing up as “scary clowns” on purpose and attacking people.
- Well-meaning innocent new clowns who have yet to perfect their makeup, creating an accidental “scary clown” face without meaning to.
- Misinformed media spreading inaccurate information to the masses.
- Real clowns encountering rudeness and bullying in person and in social media.
What are the solutions? Here are some ideas we will be discussing:
- Activism for addressing the chain stores carrying “scary clown” masks and costumes.
- Training for new clowns to design a friendlier face and better application technique.
- Education for journalists and anyone covering a story about “scary clowns”.
- Help for clowns who are in the public eye when they are told “Clowns are creepy” or “I hate clowns.”
- Positive moments and share-worthy photos, videos, and stories showing what a #REALCLOWN is.
What do you get?
- If you attend the Clown Summit at Mooseburger Camp, you will not only be part of the conversation, but you will also bring back to your clubs and organizations concrete solutions which you can implement right away. We want to put the tools in your hands so you can help change the tone of what the world thinks of when they hear the word “clown”.
- Our facilitator will be able to guide the conversation to practical and actionable suggestions, and then funnel those into a plan.
- We will provide the resources necessary to send that plan home with you so you can get the rest of your club members on board.
- After The Clown Summit, we will follow up with emails and conference calls to see how well the methods are working.
- We will provide support while the plan is being implemented.
- Mooseburger Office will act as the nexus for all the organizations to communicate with each other during the project
