YEAH! Announces Rock ’n Roll Summer Camps
Murfreesboro, TN— Summer Camp Season is upon us and YEAH! hopes that parents are thinking about summer camps for their school age children. YEAH! offers three Rock and Roll Summer Camps in Murfreesboro and Nashville this summer; the Southern Girls Rock and Roll Camp (SGRRC), Tennessee Teens Rock Camp (TNTRC), and Rock Block Summer Camp (RBSC) and invites all kids, ages 10-17, to participate. All three camps are day camps; Monday—Saturday, 8:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. (RBSC runs from 9:00am-4:30pm). All camps focus on teaching kids to play music in a band setting, thus emphasizing cooperation, team work, creativity, self-confidence and self-expression; all camps culminate in a Saturday Night Showcase in which campers and their bands perform for an audience of family, friends, and fans in a professionally produced rock and roll concert. Tuition for the Southern Girls Rock and Roll Camp (SGRRC) and Tennessee Teens Rock Camp (TNTRC) is $300, Rock Block Summer Camp is $180.
• Southern Girls Rock and Roll Camp
Southern Girls Rock and Roll Camp (SGRRC) is YEAH!’s flagship camp celebrating its 9th year this summer. It takes place in the Wright Music Building at Middle Tennessee State University, and is an all-girl camp. YEAH! traditionally serves approximately 90 campers in this camp, and boast almost as many volunteers from the local music and arts community. Camp is scheduled for the week of July 25-30. It will be a rocking good time, empowering young women ages 10-17 to express themselves confidently—and loudly! Visit SGRRC’s website to learn more: www.sgrrc.org
• Tennessee Teens Rock Camp
Tennessee Teens Rock Camp (TNTRC) is YEAH!’s co-educational Rock and Roll Camp held at the University School of Nashville. The Nashville Scene voted TNTRC the “Best New Music Camp of 2010” last fall in its “Best of Nashville” edition. TNTRC differs from SGRRC in that it is co-educational, giving boys and girls the opportunities to work together, express themselves, and find confidence in their equality and compatibility in the context of a band and artistic and musical expression. Camp is scheduled for July 11-16, 2011. Visit TNTRC’s website to learn more: www.tntrockcamp.org
• Rock Block Summer Camp
Rock Block Summer Camp (RBSC) is YEAH!’s newest Rock and Roll Camp, having been added to the roster last summer with great success. Based on the popular year round “Rock Block” Program, this camp will be structured slightly differently from SGRRC and TNTRC, with more time built into the programming day for band practice.. This camp is also a co-educational camp.RBSC will be held June 13-18 at McFadden School of Excellence in Murfreesboro. Visit RBSC’s website to learn more: www.rockblockcamp.org.
Registration for all camps is still open, and scholarships are still available until May 20th, 2011. YEAH! has also instituted a new “Refer-A-Friend” Program that allows registered campers to reduce their own tuition by referring and registering their friends for camp. Please visit YEAH’s website at www.yeahintheboro.org to learn more.
YEAH! needs volunteers, donors, sponsors, gear and equipment, teachers and band managers. All donations to YEAH! and its summer camps programs are tax deductible, by volunteering to work with them, many will find that the experience is a very fulfilling way to give back to the community and the next generation of artists and musicians. Camper Adoptions are also a very popular way of helping. About 70% of their campers enjoy a week of music and art because of scholarship dollars donated.
Businesses that want to sponsor one or more of the camps should contact Katie Blankenship at email@example.com.
YEAH! is a local youth arts organization dedicated to providing experiences in the arts for young people ages 10-17, believing that the arts and performance can empower youth to become creative, productive and confident members of our community. YEAH! strives to create a connected creative community through the arts, performance and collaborations with other arts organizations, foundations, educators, and community leaders. YEAH! thanks Central Magnet School, McFadden School of Excellence, The University School of Nashville and Middle Tennessee State University for housing our programming, our summer camps, and supporting us in such a valuable and tangible way.
