Former professional magician Lisa Close is a Toronto, Ontario native who thinks about family when she thinks about Canada. She has a fondness for both camping and magic, so when she heard about Sorcerers Safari Magic and Performance Arts Camp (from chatting with Magic Mike Segal at The Browser's Den of Magic), she knew she had to try it out. Lisa has been a part of Sorcerers Safari for three years.
Lisa loves the whole experience of magic camp. Especially the cooperation, camaraderie and fun had by everyone. The "back to nature" setting is a big plus. Lisa really enjoys watching campers see a magic trick they can't explain. To her, magic camp means reuniting with old friends, eating together and watching kids take to the whole experience.
Her first memory of magic was when she was nine years old and her dad showed her a silk vanish. She hopes that the young magic enthusiasts won't forget the importance of reading about magic and learning from books. Her advice for aspiring magical youth: "Come to Sorcerers Safari!"
Lisa loves watching movies, especially comedies, when taking a break from magic.
