LEONARDTOWN, MD – St. Mary’s County Public Schools will be sponsoring the Elementary School Summer Fine Arts Camp, June 25 - 28, 2012, for students completing grades 3, 4, and 5; and the Middle School Summer Fine Arts Camp, July 9 - 12, 2012, for students completing grades 6, 7, and 8. Both camps will be held at Leonardtown High School from 8:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. The goal of this program is to provide opportunities for students to participate in enrichment activities in one of the following course areas: band, chorus, orchestra, theatre, and visual arts. Students enrolled in the band and orchestra will need to have completed at least one year of study within their school program.
Each day students will have two sessions in their course area, one session incorporating reading and writing and one session in movement. It will be a week filled with activities, skills, fun, and friends.
An evening of the arts is scheduled for Thursday, June 28, 2012, for Elementary School Summer Fine Arts Camp and Thursday, July 12, 2012, for the Middle School Summer Fine Arts Camp. Both programs will begin at 6:00 p.m. in the gymnasium at Leonardtown High School. All students are expected to participate in this culminating program.
Students will need to provide their own transportation to Leonardtown High School and their own lunch. The camp will provide a morning and afternoon snack. Students in band and orchestra will also need to provide their instrument and any necessary supplies (reeds, strings, etc.). The camp will provide all other supplies.
The tuition for the camp is $130.00 for students attending schools in St. Mary’s County and $180.00 for students attending schools not in St. Mary’s County. There will be no tuition refunds. There are a limited number of scholarships available. Students attending nonpublic schools are encouraged to attend.
