“What do I get for my money?”


Double occupancy hotel-like room with private bath and air conditioning. We will randomly assign you a roommate of the same gender, unless you inform us with whom you wish to room.


Along with the three square meals each day, there are free unlimited muffins, cookies, and fresh fruit to snack on throughout the day, and 24-hour free beverage service (coffee, tea, juice, water), plus a coin-operated soda pop machine. Over the years, we’ve heard all sorts of good things from the campers (and we agree!) about the yummy food served family-style in the King’s House dining room — You are in for a treat!

  • For vegetarians and vegans, the kitchen staff tries to have enough variety at each meal in order for you to have your fill, but these “variety” items may be created by simply omitting the a la carte meat (i.e. sandwiches, pasta). However, if the entrée is impossible to cook without adding meat before serving (i.e. stew, pizza), they will offer a meat-free option in the kitchen.
  • If you have special dietary needs which we cannot fulfill, you of course have the option of bringing your own food/snacks to camp. We regret to inform you that we cannot provide a discounted registration if you bring your own food, for the retreat facility has the meals built into the package and they cannot give us a discount. There is an entire kitchen area, complete with refrigerator, stove, microwave, and sink, reserved just for you to use in the Joseph Hall – please have your food and items labeled with your name.


P.E.P. stands for Personal Education Plan and is a FREE service we are providing for Moose Campers. This is a Mooseburger Exclusive – you can’t get PEP anywhere else! Everyone who registers for Mooseburger Clown Arts Camp gets a phone consultation with Tricia Manuel (a.k.a. “Pricilla Mooseburger”). She will discuss your clowning goals and ask questions to find out how you can make the most of your Mooseburger experience. During your phone consultation, you will be provided with a list of recommended courses, workshops, and labs to get you on the right track.

PEP takes all the guess-work out of your education and ensures that every hour at Moose Camp will be well spent; you will get the training you want and need. Of course, you are not limited to taking only the course and workshops Pricilla recommends; you can create your own curriculum if you like. But our experience will be your best guide for making your training profitable, fun, and useful!


This is another item you can only get this from Mooseburger’s, and it is only given to registered campers. Brand-new campers will get the complete file, while returning alumni will get the updated addendum file for this year. We will email you the PDF files.

We recommend that you print out the first section because those “Red Nose Goal” Worksheets are a great way to begin your education early and get excited about Moose Camp! Other sections of the workbook do not need to be printed off, simply read at your leisure.

The file includes inspiring anecdotes from the staff, a resource list for clown supplies and organizations, character worksheets, an annual timeline and check-lists for your clowning career, ideas for improving your act, and tons of useful information. Over three decades of experience has gone into this workbook, so you’ll want to hang onto it for a long time!


Main Intensive Course; Afternoon Workshops; Jams and Labs (in magic, juggling, balloons, etc.); All your coaching and performance in the All Star Clown Show; and more tips and advice than you’ll ever use in your lifetime.  Click to [ddownload id=”911″ text=”DOWNLOAD” style=”link”] the schedule to see how each hour is jam-packed!
