Artpark announced scholarship opportunities exist for select sessions of its weeklong summer camps. Favorites Pizzeria is offering two Artpark Rock Camp (Aug. 17-22) scholarships and, thanks to the help of individual donors, an additional scholarship is available for Artpark Theater Camps (Aug. 3-7, 10-14). Each scholarship covers the $275 camp fee for the full week.
Interested candidates may complete an application and essay, available at artpark.net. Deadline for submissions is July 17. Artpark administration and camp directors will review applications; scholarships will be awarded by July 24.
Artpark Rock Camp provides a unique opportunity for young musicians (guitar, bass guitar, keyboards) to develop their skills and collaborate with other aspiring performers. To be eligible for Rock Camp, students ages 12-18 must have a minimum of two years experience on their instrument. The camp takes place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Artpark. The final day of camp features a concert for family and friends on the Artpark amphitheater stage.
Artpark Theater Camp is perfect for the introductory-level performer (ages 9-14). The camp helps to build confidence on and off the stage through theater, dance, singing exercises and performance. Campers will perform for family and friends on the final day of camp in the Mainstage Theater. A complimentary ticket for Artpark's production of "Peter Pan" is included in this session of Theater Camp.
The Advanced Theater Camp session runs Aug. 10-14 for ages 14-18 and is more suitable for high school students with theater experience. This session also features a performance on stage for family and friends on the final day of camp.
