Music & Arts 2017 

 

ART CLASSES

Art Classes are double periods (1 hour) and cannot be split.  A smock and/or other minor recycled or nature items might be needed for class and may be stored in the art rooms.  A list will be available on this website in May and to your child on the first day of camp.  Students who are absent will be unable to make up the projects missed during their absence. 

CLASSROOM MUSIC COURSES

A wide variety of music classes are offered, giving campers an opportunity to explore and have fun with music.  These are single period classes that meet for 1/2 hour.

LARGE MUSICAL ENSEMBLES

The large musical ensembles will perform in the final concert.  Students who anticipate being absent for one week or more or who will not be at the final performance, are not encouraged to participate in large ensembles.  Students are responsible for providing their own instruments.

INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC LESSONS

Single period courses that meet for 1/2 hour.  Instructors will provide information regarding instrument rental or purchase and the method book, this information will also be available online in May, but students will not be required to have them until the 3rd class.  Students who anticipate being absent for a week due to vacation, etc. should not plan to begin an instrument.

DANCE CLASSES

Single period course that meets for 1/2 hour.  Please note the level requirements.  The instructor has the right to group classes by ability levels.  Some classes may be selected to perform in the final concert.

DRAMA CLASSES

Single period courses that meet for 1/2 hour.  Introduction to Drama is available for campers entering grades 3-5 while Acting classes are available to campers entering grades 6-9. We also have specific types of drama classes that are offered to different grades levels.  To see a list of groups scheduled to perform see below.   

RECREATION

Music & Arts classes are the focus of this camp. Recreation Classes (formerly Sports & Games) have been restructured based on parent and camper feedback. Recreation Classes are designed to give campers a chance to be active during their morning of classes, however, since Music & Arts is the focus of camp, campers should limit their selection in this category to one class. Yoga classes are offered to all age groups.

*Classes may be held inside or outside and will be modified as weather conditions warrant.

 

NOTES REGARDING CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

WHAT DO I NEED FOR CAMP? - Some classes will require that students have certain items such as lesson books, shoes, smocks, etc.  In an effort to get this information out to parents earlier than the first day of camp a page will be posted on this website in May noting items needed for certain classes.  Teachers will continue to discuss supplies needed on the first day of camp and will not require students to have them until the 3rd day of camp.  If a major item is needed such as an instrument, it will be listed in the class description.
