Arts Alive hosts summer arts camp

WEST POINT — Arts Alive held its annual Summer Arts Camp the week of June 23-27. One hundred twenty five children participated in the week-long camp and enjoyed classes that included dance, visual arts, photography, drama and music.

The campers had an opportunity to try new activities, find new talents and make lasting friendships and memories. But more importantly, it was an opportunity to have fun.

Arts Alive would like to thank West Point Schools for allowing us use of their facilities and Charles City-James City-New Kent-York County Farm Bureau for sponsoring this event. A special thanks to the local teachers and artists who taught the classes and to all the volunteers, parents and students who helped make this event so successful.

Registration is still open for our Missoula Drama Camp which will be held the week of August 4 through 9. Campers will rehearse and attend workshops all week with two professional actors from the Missoula Children's Theatre to present two performances of The Secret Garden.

Performances will be held at the Robinson/Olsson Auditorium on August 9 at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. and are open to the public.
