Summer Arts Camp at Milligan

MILLIGAN COLLEGE, TN (May 7, 2002) – Local children interested in the arts are invited to Milligan College’s annual Summer Arts Camp in July. The day camp will explore the fun of art, drama, music, creative movement, literature, and more using the theme of “American Arts.”

“I love the laughter and creative energy that the children share as they explore the arts with such wonderfully talented and qualified teachers,” said Keith Hertzog, director of the summer camp and teacher at Woodland Elementary School in Johnson City. “I wish that every child could come and enjoy the Summer Arts experience.”

”Summer Arts Camp encourages each child to explore his/her unique gifts and ideas in a Christian environment of community and acceptance,” said Carlene B. Eastridge, coordinator of the camp and assistant professor of music at Milligan. “We have many students return year after year, which speaks well of our commitment to each child, and the fun and rewarding experience Summer Arts provides.”

Children will have six classes each day including drama, morning and afternoon art experience, literature, creative movement and music. The children will also have time to swim in Milligan’s indoor pool each afternoon. Small group instruction at the camp is child-centered and focused on the appropriate developmental level of the children.

The camp will run daily from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. the week of July 8-12 for children ages 7-12. Cost of the program is $150. For more information or to register your child for the Milligan College Summer Arts Camp, please contact Carlene Eastridge at 423-461-8938 or at
