A few spots are still open for Mount Mary University's upcoming summer camps which offer flexible scheduling, affordable pricing and unique activities for kids and teens who want to have fun and expand their creativity in art, music and fashion.

"Creative Connections," for K-8 graders, takes place the weeks of June 22 and July 6. This year's theme, "Reflections - Stop, Look and Listen," features engaging activities that awaken all of the senses and blend art, music and movement.artcamp2015_web.jpg

Campers can choose from an exciting mix of 8 different classes that explore everything from sculpture and print making to stop-motion animation and costume design. The music workshops include "Rhythm Reflections" and "Mirror in My Music."
