LEAF Schools & Streets invites your kids to join us at LEAF Global Arts for summer camp!
Camps run 9am to 5pm at LEAF Global Arts at 19 Eagle St in Downtown Asheville. Drop off is between 8:30am and 9am and pick up is from 5pm-5:30pm. Snacks will be provided, and students should bring a peanut free bagged lunch and a water bottle to camp each day, and wear clothes and shoes they can move in. In addition to the main focus of the camp, each week will explore elements of theatre art, music, and dance from around the world.

**A FEW SPOTS LEFT!**August 8th – 12th: Brass & Percussion Camp. For rising 4th-8th graders. Students will work with lead resident teaching artist Ersel Bogan III (also known as Garfield). Mr. Garfield gets students moving and playing in the stylings of Second Line music, a rhythm famously used in New Orleans. Students are encouraged to bring brass instruments if they have them – otherwise they will be provided.

Cost for these week-long camps is $230 per week. Scholarships are available. Please inquire by emailing Erinn at education@theLEAF.org.  LEAF Global Arts Summer Camps are made possible by the generous support of LEAF Members.
