Rainbows, Rhythms, and Ringing

Camp Directors:  Jessica LaPine and Jennifer Garr
Grades 2 – 4**
Four one-week camps (dates listed below)
9:15 AM – 12:15 PM

Requested by previous Musical Jamboree campers and families, Rainbows, Rhythms, and Ringing is for children who want to experience the Musical Jamboree format at an advanced level. Each morning’s schedule will include art time, choral singing and children's voice class, folk dancing and singing games, and playing choir chimes and Orff instruments.

Rainbows, Rhythms, and Ringing will again offer four sessions this year. Each session runs for one week and offers a different theme. While we will follow the same weekly theme as Musical Jamboree, daily themes may be revised to provide a more age-appropriate experience. Families may choose to sign up for any number of weeks (see fee schedule on next page).

Requirement
**Open to children entering grades 2 through 4 in fall 2014.

Maximum Enrollment
12 children per session

Schedule
Camp hours are Monday through Friday, 9:15 AM – 12:15 PM. Provisions may be made for before- and after-camp care (8:15 AM – 1:15 PM) at an additional cost; AM and PM care fees are available from Early Childhood Department Head Jennifer Garr and will also be included in the mid-June pre-camp packet. For further information, contact Mrs. Garr at 609-921-7104 or JGarr@rider.edu. Please let Mrs. Garr know if your child has any medical concerns about which we need to be aware prior to the start of camp.

Location
Rainbows, Rhythms, and Ringing will be held at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Princeton, located on Cherry Hill Road just off Route 206, only 5 minutes from the Westminster Choir College campus and downtown Princeton. All classrooms are air-conditioned with adjoining privacy bathrooms. Directions will be sent in the pre-camp confirmation packet.

**Due to allergy concerns, each camper is to bring in a NUT-FREE daily snack from home. Families will be asked to provide allergy information, for the safety of all.
