Held for the first time under one roof, AAPS Summer Music Camp concludes three weeks of growth for middle schoolers

High school students served as counselors at the Summer Music Camp held at Skyline High School

The AAPS Summer Music Camp has recently completed another successful three-week session, providing middle school music students with opportunities for growth and development.

Until now, the middle schools held their own camps. This year, it was held at Skyline High School.

“Because all of our offerings are occurring during the same time frame under one roof, it gives all of the families in the district the opportunity to design an experience that works best for their child,” said Brittany Osman, one of the co-directors of the camp. “Students who are looking for a traditional camp experience are able to come for day camp which includes symphony, physical activity, and lunchtime.”  Meanwhile, students who prefer shorter classes or who have many other summer activities to juggle were able to register for one or two hour-long orchestra, band, or jazz classes. 

“The students have also said that they enjoyed getting to know students from other schools,” said Osman, “and they are excited to make connections early in their middle school years that they will be able to build on as they reconnect with friends in high school. “
