YEARLY PROGRAMS:

P.L.A.Y.: Peace, Love, Arts, & You

Taking place on the historic grounds during summer months, students ages 10-15 create collaborative music and art together. These two-week art immersion programs provide opportunities for skill development in a variety of art forms.

Registration Opens March 15.

Project: Identity

Teens ages 14-18 have the opportunity to gain new skill sets in photography, media design, filmmaking, music and studio engineering through courses, weekend workshops, and off-site field trips.

Studio at the Woods

Throughout the year, studio classes and after-school workshops for kids ages 7-13 offer lessons in music, painting, sculpture, printmaking, ceramics, and design.

Rock Camp Ambassador Program

Rock Camp Ambassador Program aims to support the growth and creativity development of past PLAY Rock Camp students (ages 14-18) who are interested in music and age out of the summer program. Exceptional students are hand selected to participate based on the talent and commitment they exhibited during their time in PLAY Rock Camp. Participating ambassadors will learn advanced ensemble techniques, songwriting, audio engineering, and build a repertoire of songs to be performed throughout the year.

Youth Leadership Day

Local high school students examine how they can find their passion and purpose through inspiring presentations and interactive sessions.
