Camp Director Charlotte Lee has announced “It Could Happen at the Zoo!” as the theme for Monroe Area Council for the Arts (MACA) summer arts camps. MACA’s series of one week arts camps feature instruction in music, art, drama, stage design, and dance led by professional teachers.
The camps are open to children in Grades Pre-K – 7 (Pre-K children must be enrolling in kindergarten this year). The cost is $65/week and includes breakfast, lunch and a t-shirt. Each week concludes with a performance showcase on Friday for friends and family. The camps are held Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. Payment options for the camps are: Pay half of the fee when submitting the registration and the second half by the first day of camp; pay the full fee with the registration; or pay on the first day of camp.
A limited number of need-based scholarships are available. The application process requires a recommendation from a teacher or adult who is well-acquainted with the child. The postmark deadline for the scholarship application to be submitted is June 1.
Both scholarship applications and camp registrations can be downloaded from the MACA website or call Director Charlotte Lee at 423-836-0441. Registrations and applications may also be picked up at the MACA office, located at the Monroe County Chamber of Commerce, 520 A Cook Street, Madisonville.
