Eric Jones Special Guest at Sorcerers Safari Magic Camp this Summer


Eric Jones travels all the way from North Carolina to the Sorcerers Safari Summer Magic Camp in Ontario, Canada. (Eric comes for the kids, but stays for the magic; “Love it,” say Sorcerers Safari staffers.)

Toronto, Ontario. – July 3rd, 2011 EST – Amidst rampant magic forum speculation, Sorcerers Safari Summer Magic Camp announced it is bringing in the hip American coin virtuoso as the special guest at Magic Camp this summer.

Eric Jones is coming to Sorcerers Safari Magic Camp 2011 - Are you?With several best selling DVDs, a cover of SAM’s magazine and a ton of great unpublished ideas – Eric Jones has lots to offer the campers. Eric Jones is famous for his interviews on REEL MAGIC, he’s also known for teaching beginner coin handlings on METAL and AUDIO DVDs which have received international acclaim. Now imagine what it would be like to spend a camp session with this guy?!?

The inspiration for asking Eric Jones to spend time at magic camp, recalled Mike Segal, owner of Sorcerers Safari, “He simply loves magic and would be a perfect fit for camp and the kids,” Segal said. “And there is no better way to spend time immersed in the art of magic than with one of your heroes. Who doesn’t love Eric Jones? He’s awesome!”

The idea of having online personalities as special guests at camp is always one of the hot debates at the annual executive staff meetings. (Sorcerers Safari Summer Magic Camp chooses only the best of the best to come up as special guest.) After unanimously agreeing Eric Jones was a perfect fit, we asked and he gladly accepted.

“Eric Jones is going to have a great time up here, and so are all the campers and staff. Imagine all of the experiences he can recount about performing on the MASTERS OF MAGIC stage in Italy, filming world-wide acclaimed videos with Ellusionist, launching and the rest of all the legendary things he’s done,” said Sorcerers Safari twelve year veteran, Lee Asher. “This is going to be our fifteenth year in operation, and I can’t remember a time when everyone was so excited about a special guest like Eric Jones.”

Asher adds, “I met Eric Jones very early in his career and it’s now nice to see them blossom into a powerful, artistic force. Having him at camp is a win-win for everyone. We welcome him to our camp family with open arms. Having Eric is like having a long-lost brother come up for the week. I love it!”

Unlike other special guest declarations, when Eric Jones’ name was announced, the room broke into loud applause and cheers. It’s going to be the best year of camp, ever!

This is huge! I’m looking forward to being your Guest of Honor at this years Safari. Words can’t express how thrilled I am to work with each of you. You know, it isn’t every day that I get to directly interact with the future of magic. -Eric Jones

According to Mike Segal, Sorcerers Safari is growing exponentially with a high rate of return campers and return staff. With luck, Eric Jones will love camp so much, he too, will return repeatedly.
