Marylhurst University will offer two summer camps in 2016: a Creative Arts Day Camp for kids with or without special needs, and the Marylhurst Choir Camp for high school and community college students. The camps will take place on the Marylhurst campus.

There are two sessions of the Creative Arts Day Camp, July 11-14, for ages 5-10 and July 18-21, for ages 11-17. The Creative Arts Day Camp, for children with and without special needs, is a one-week, half-day program during which children have access to creative arts therapists. Campers will participate in projects that reinforce the ideal of achieving one’s maximum potential in a friendly and adaptive environment that fosters success through a variety of activities: music, art, movement/dance and drama. Camp runs 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Cost is $170 and includes all activities and camp T-shirt. For more information and to register, visit marylhurst.edu/daycamp.

Marylhurst Choir Camp is for high school and community college students and will run August 1-5. This summer camp is a concentrated musical experience designed specifically for enthusiastic, committed high school and community college singers. Performance opportunities in large and small ensembles will challenge students at their personal level. Ensembles will be coached and rehearsed by outstanding guest conductors with a national reputation. Students may participate in recitals and master classes, receive private lessons from the professional staff for an additional fee, and enroll in elective courses such as Choral Conducting, Vocal Jazz Technique, Composing for Video Games, and more. Hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. daily. Cost is $150 and includes all music, course tuition (excluding private lessons), lunch each day and camp T-shirt.
