New - Artsy Math*
Gr 3-4 or 5-6

Do you enjoy art? Do you enjoy math? This class is designed for both! Students will create using math concepts like symmetry, tessellation, geometry and measurement. No artistic skill necessary—if your can measure color, and draw a straight line (maybe with a ruler) - you can create art and learn about math.

New - Creative Captains of Music
Gr. 5-8

Students will have a great time exploring what exactly makes music and what found objects (trash cans, pots and pans, etc.) can sound awesome in a music composition. We will also explore the weird and cool sounds that traditional instruments can make when played in unconventional ways - nothing is too weird sounding for this class! By the end of the camp, students will learn what it takes to compose a sound tone poem or sound song and understand and apply the process of how composers really do compose music.

New - Drum Circle
Grades 4-6
Students will have the opportunity to perform many types of percussion instruments in a drum circle ensemble. You don't need to know how to read music to perform excellently, for the rhythms are all language based, so everyone can play! Performance technique and musical concepts (call and response, complimentary rhythms, dynamics and texture) will be taught so that students can perform as part of a larger percussion ensemble that will result in a really cool performance on the last day of camp. Rhythm is FUN-damental to all people so everyone can play.
