Categories of effects
The Magician produces something from nothing—a rabbit from a hat, a fan of cards, a shower of coins. All of these effects are productions.
The Magician makes something disappear—a coin, milk from a newspaper, an assistant from a cabinet.A vanish, being the reverse of a production, may use a similar technique, in reverse.
The Magician transforms something from one state into another—a silk handkerchief changes colour, a lady turns into a tiger. A transformation can be seen as a combination of a vanishand a production.
The Magician destroys an object & restores it back to its original state, a rope is cut, a newspaper is torn, a woman is sawn in half, then they are all restored to their original state.
The Magician causes something to move from one place to another—a borrowed ring is found inside a ball of wool, an assistant from a cabinet to the back of the theatre. When two objects exchange places, it is called a transposition: a simultaneous, double teleportation.
The Magician defies gravity, either by making something float in the air, or with the aid of another object (suspension)—a silver ball floats around a cloth, an assistant floats in mid-air, another is suspended from a broom, a scarf dances in a sealed bottle
The Magician makes a solid object pass through another—a set of steel rings link and unlink, a candle penetrates an arm, swords pass through an assistant in a basket, a saltshaker penetrates the table-top,
The Magician predicts the choice of a spectator, or the outcome of an event under seemingly impossible circumstances—a newspaper headline is predicted, the total amount of loose change in the spectator's pocket, a picture drawn on a slate.
Many magical routines use combinations of effects. For example, in "cups and balls" a Magician may use vanishes, productions, penetrations, teleportation and transformations as part of the one presentation.

Some stuff you’ll need to know before booking:
These details apply to all camps and both of our campuses.
Activities kick off at 9 am, but we have free drop off from 8.30 am where children can join in a free choice activity.
We have a full time nurse on site for every camp week to manage health checks every morning and administer medication/first aid if it’s needed. All camp staff have up-to-date first aid training.
Lunch and snacks are included in the cost of your camp. If your kid is a vegetarian or doesn’t/can’t eat beef, pork, seafood, dairy or eggs, that’s cool. Just tell us beforehand in your child’s details online… or most other diet needs come to that. If your kid has a nut allergy, don’t worry, we don’t go near there either Camp Asia has a no nut policy.
