Summer Music & Art Camp Registration Set for March 2

Summer Music & Art Camp Registration Set for March 2

The Friends of the St. Augustine Amphitheatre announce the return of their popular summer camps, according to a media release. The Summer Music & Art Camp is for kids in the first through the sixth grade. Camp Rock, back after a four-year hiatus, is an experience for teens 12 to 18 years of age. Both camps are designed to encourage children to appreciate and explore the arts.

“We’re so excited that, as we celebrate our 15th year, the Friends can bring back two awesome summer camps,” said Mark Ramirez, President of the FOSAA Board of Directors, in the release. “The purpose of the Friends is to make the Amp a place for locals to enjoy. These tremendous programs get our kids together and introduce them to the transformative power of art and music – there’s nothing better!”

The Summer Music & Art is divided into three periods: music, art, and group. During the music period, campers can explore one of five instruments, based on their age: ukulele, guitar, rhythm, percussion, and recorder. Students can focus on multi-projects during the art period. five-day camp runs from June 24-28 and costs $175/child, plus a $25 non-refundable deposit. There is a $25 sibling discount.

Camp Rock focuses on rock music instruction and organization. Campers can focus on guitar, bass, drums, keyboards or vocals – they must have some experience. Instructors will then group students into bands that will perform on the main stage of the St. Augustine Amphitheatre and, through a partnership with Jim Stafford of Eclipse Studios, record their songs in a professional recording studio. Camp Rock runs from July 22-26, with studio time scheduled from July 29-Aug. 1. The cost is $300 per camper and includes a non-refundable $25 deposit. Fees may be pre-paid on the FOSAA website. Scholarships are available; parents and/or guardians should submit a letter explaining why support is needed with their application. For more information or to fill out the application, visit here.
