Both sessions are at capacity.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

Nineteen teachers are heading up the classes, which include Art with FUNctionality, Alphabet Art, Silly Science, Hands on Math, Super Science Exploration, Dance Fusion and Bass Fishing/Outdoor Adventures. There are about 80 classes to choose from.

District 73 also is holding a band and orchestra music camp from July 22 to Aug. 2 at Middle School South.
