Enrollment open for Arts Center summer camps


Registration is underway for four weeks of half-day summer camps that appeal to boys and girls.

Dance instructor Amy Maze designs, plans and leads the camps for children ages 3-5 and 6-9. Each half-day camp has a theme such as “Pirates and Mermaids” for the younger group and “Just Dance” for the 6-9 year olds.

Maze leads the dance portion of the day and musician Kylie Brown leads the music portion. Campers split the morning between music and dance with a little down time for snack and craft activities that reinforce the camp’s theme. Family and friends are invited to a performance on the last day of camp.

The cost for each camp is $125 per camper. Register by calling the arts center at 669-0930 or visiting BlackMountain
