Millersville Summer Camp for Kids

Millersville Summer Camp for Kids

An exciting Summer Camp line-­up filled with great music, theater, and visual arts programs for children of all ages comes to the Ware Center, located at 42 N. Prince Street in Lancaster, PA, and to the Winter Center, located at 60 W. Cottage Avenue in Millersville, PA.

CAMPS FOR KIDS & TEENS

Discover a world of inspiration and creativity at Millersville University’s ARTS SMARTS Summer Camps in Music, Theater, and Visual Arts for pre-­schoolers ages 4-­5, and grades K-­2, 3-­5, and 6-­8. Week-­long age-­appropriate programs are designed to encourage artistic expression and appreciation, foster knowledge and skills, and inspire the imagination through an active hands-­on exploration of the artistic process. They are also just plain fun. And no previous experience is necessary. Each camp concludes with a performance or exhibition of these young artists’ creations. Every camp is unique, so a child can take as many as four camps of the same discipline. For registration and information, go to ArtsMU.com/arts-smarts-­camp.

MUSIC

Our Summer Musical Campers will have the opportunity to sing, pluck, blow, strike, and play, learning many forms of musical expression, from percussion to voice and movement. Campers will gain knowledge of musical elements while remaining active, energized, and having plenty of fun. Come prepared to move to the music! Week-­long Summer Music camps will provide students an opportunity to explore Recording & Musical Theater, while mini-­camp sessions will offer instruction in Brass/Woodwinds & Strings, and Jazz, Keyboard, and World Percussion. There is something musical here for every child of every age. For registration and information, go to MUsummermusiccamp.com.

THEATER

In the Summer Theater camps, kids will learn to play and perform, exploring the fundamentals of comedy and drama with games, exercises, and various techniques to grow and develop their own inner Shakespeare. Lots of laughter is also in store with hilarious comedy improv games. Participants will harness the acting tools they already possess – their body, voice, and imagination – to tell moving stories, all the while gaining skills in creative thinking, public speaking, teamwork, and more. From July 5 – 31 the M-­UTH Theater Camp ensemble of teens and young adults will create and perform “Between Apartment 2-­‐B and the End Zone,” an original work. Thanks to a generous contribution from the Rodgers Family Charitable Foundation, enrollment is FREE and open to middle-­‐school, high school and college age young people of all backgrounds, with a particular interest in those who have faced various life challenges. For more information on joining the ensemble contact Barry.Kornhauser@millersville.edu.

VISUAL ARTS/MULTIDISCIPLINARY

The Summer Visual Arts camps offer a wide range of media for kids to explore and get creative in. Campers will have the chance to make their own dream-­catcher or bird house, design their own calendar, experience paper weaving, and paint beautiful kaleidoscopes, among other activities. In “Drawing What You Hear,” they will enhance their creative skills by exploring various drawing surfaces and materials while being exposed to many different genres of music.
