Camps are for grades K-12. Camps range in price from $125.00 - $250.00 for half-day ses- sions. Camps begin June 6 and the last session kicks off July 15. There are Spanish, creative writing and art, ballet, film- making digital photography, computer programming, SAT prep, and science camps. Sports include soccer, track and field, volleyball, basket- ball, lacrosse, tennis, and base- ball.


Morning sessions are bet-

Bluegrass Festival puts campers on main stage


The Red White and Bluegrass


Festival will again host a Bluegrass Camp for Kids in Morganton, N.C., where kids can learn to “pick” and per- form traditional bluegrass with the professionals. Now in its ninth year, the


camp offers youth interested in learning instrumental music the chance to do so in a fun environment and to per- form onstage at the annual Red, White and Bluegrass Festival.


While there is no set age or skill requirement, most campers are on a beginner or intermediate level and range from 5 to 18 years old. All campers bring their own instruments.


Along with sessions cover-


ing stage presence, learning new tunes, playing as a band and singing, campers will also receive instruction on the fid-


dle, mandolin, guitar, banjo and bass. Three days of fine-tuning ends with a performance on the final evening when campers will play a short set on the festival’s stage. Recent festivals have drawn as many as 16,000 attendees and nearly a hundred campers. The fee for the camp is $75 Sessions run each


per child.
