Your child will learn to be aware in the present moment without judgment. Children will work to improve their awareness with focus on the breath, their senses, and positive attitudes. Learning self-regulation, focus, and stress management skills now can help them throughout their lives. Understanding how their brain works and the concept of mindfulness can help them gain greater appreciate and a sense of gratitude. More information and registration.
Daily clinics, masterclasses, and final performances along with concerts by a cappella headliners add up to an awesome experience. A dorm with a roommate, three meals a day, and some rad apparel all come together with your voice to equal one incredible summer workshop! More information and registration.
The University of Wisconsin-Parkside has limited scholarship funds available to help eligible children participate in its 2018 Summer Camp program. Partial scholarships will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis to students whose families meet the Federal Income Eligibility Guidelines. Please note that because funds are limited, qualifying for a scholarship does not guarantee a scholarship award. The scholarship program allows one scholarship per child per summer. However, if a family has more than one child the parent or guardian may submit a separate application for each child in the household. Completed applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis and applicants will be notified within 30 days of receipt. Please note the Summer Reading Program and A Cappella University are not included in the scholarship program.
Help bring opportunities to the children of Racine and Kenosha counties. All children should have the same opportunities for learning, growth, and development. That is why we have created a flexible sponsorship program geared toward our local youth. Visit our Youth Sponsorship Program site to find out how you can sponsor a camp today!
