LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - A fun-loving local camp is bringing people from other countries to La Crosse to learn how to clown around.
Viterbo University is hosting a week- long Clown Camp.
The camp focuses on the art of being a clown, including comedy magic, 'stickerology' and physical comedy.
Instructors say the camp helps aspiring clowns open up and learn to express themselves in a universal way.
"Part of the training is just to get you used to doing that, to be more expressive with your body and your face and just kind of open up and let that happen. And it's amazing how expressive people are when you give them that license," said instructor Joe Dieffenbacher.
This is the 36th year of the camp.
More than 100 people are attending this year, including some as far away as Canada.
