Rock Band and Glee Club are coordinated by age (6 or older), grade and musical interests & ability. For younger kids, we offer a Rock City World Tour (4 - 5) that introduces diverse instruments like the African Hand-Drums and Australian Didgeridoos for kids to explore. Young kids will love spending time in this global musical vacation. There's also a Recording Arts camp (10 or older) where students can work ‘hands on' in a small class on Pro Tools and our Studio Live digital mixer to learn studio recording.

Offering 17 camps at 5 locations

Each and every photograph offers the extraordinary pleasure of discovery. Viewing, discussing, and creating images is a passage to self-discovery that enhances ones self-esteem. Studying photography is a conduit to a better understanding of various cultures and different ways of seeing, believing, and thinking. Photography broadens our perception of ourselves and the world. Photography is about more than technique; it is about perception and communication. Because the power of photography lies in its ability to communicate our perceptions of the world, photography can intersect with many areas of study.
