Values of salt City Circus

Everyone is welcome here. We embrace you wholly as an artist and a human while aiming to challenge you creatively and physically. This retreat is a safe and inclusive space for all gender identities, sexual orientations, races, ethnicities, backgrounds, etc.

At Salt City Circus we are focused on creating a community that embraces individuals wholly as artists and humans. We take a holistic approach to aerial training, focusing not only on working hard but also on advancing skills through play, building relationships, cultivating creativity, reconnecting with nature, and taking time to nourish and rest. This is an off the grid, intimate retreat that gives you space to unplug from technology and tap into community building.

About The Retreat

Cabin & Circus Barn Highlights


Remote & Off the Grid

Our secluded mountainside  location nestled in the heart of the Manti-La Sal National Forest outside of Scofield, UT offers a short digital detox, surrounded by breathtaking landscapes and fresh mountain air. The property is powered by a combination of a generator and solar power, and supplied by fresh well water. With no cell reception or internet, you will have the chance to fully engage in immersive workshops and activities and create unforgettable memories.


Community Minded

The spacious three-story cabin sits on 40 acres and features four shared bunk rooms, two communal gathering areas, two bathrooms, and a large porch with spectacular views. Dedicated to fostering community, the retreat will provide opportunities for people to come together, share stories, play, and support one another's growth. It is the perfect place to immerse yourself in nature and form deep connections with others.


Fuel & Nourish

Recharge each day with delicious healthy meals and snacks prepared with care by our professional catering team. Nutritious meals are centered around high quality ingredients, including accommodations for vegan, gluten-free, and allergy-sensitive diets. You’ll enjoy fresh mountain well water, a variety of teas, and coffee that you can self-serve throughout the day.


Training Spaces

Expand your skills during this aerial intensive retreat with multiple daily aerial workshops, free time for jam sessions and creation, and specialized classes to round it all out. The property has an outdoor aerial rig and a large two story circus barn with 8 aerial points ranging from 16-28ft.
