Blue Lake fine arts camp

"Music Programs at Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp are designed to challenge students of all proficiency levels. Students are grouped by ability, as determined by auditions, and our conducting staff selects a challenging repertoire for all ensembles. Students receive five hours of intensive daily full rehearsals, sectionals, and technique classes. Students can complete their instructional day by choosing a Minor, allowing them to experience another area of interest while at camp. See minors for a complete listing of courses.
