Eight Types of Magic Camp

Did you know that there are really only eight types of magic effects?  It's true! In this five day camp, students will learn effects  based on the eight types of magic priciples: appear, vanish, transport, transform, levitate, animate, restore, and pierce. They will also construct at least one prop a day to use in performance, and, at the end of the week, will participate in a magic show!  This is a great “introduction to magic” camp.

Superheroes Camp

Superheroes reign supreme in this awesome new summer camp from School of Magic Arts! From flight to mind control, invisibility to superspeed, students will embark on a five-day journey to create their own magical superhero-style effects and play with storytelling and character creation for stage magic. They will also construct at least one prop a day to use in performance, and, at the end of the week, will participate in a magic show! This is a great camp for students just beginning magic and also those who have taken SOMA camps in the past.

Magicians We Love Camp

In this five day camp, students will learn about five very different magicians and their most famous effects, from Kruti Parekh’s mentalism to Harry Houdini’s escapes to David Copperfield’s large-scale illusions. They will also construct at least one prop a day to use in performance, and at the end of the week, will participate in a magic show! This is a great camp for students who might be interested in the history of magic.
“Creative and unlike other camps! The teachers are attentive and enthusiastic and very skilled.”

Meet Annie & Brian

School of Magic Arts was founded in 2017 by professional magicians Brian M. Kehoe and Annie Montone (The Encounter). Brian and Annie love magic, but saw something missing in stage magic education. Instead of just "teaching tricks," they wanted to encourage personal growth and connections by teaching magic technique and performance in a safe, inclusive, student-focused environment. In the last four years, SOMA has welcomed hundreds of students and participants (of all ages, all over the world) to our virtual magic classes, lessons, workshops, shows, and camps. Welcome to SOMA. You belong, here.

Annie sits on the right in a burgundy dress with black sequins. The front part of her hair is curled and turquoise colored. She wears a pink feather in her hair.
