SIDNEY — This July, kids from the Saanich Peninsula will be making some noise as the Mary Winspear and the Peninsula Academy of Music Arts team up to host two, one-week long rock and roll camps.

Directors Lloyd English and Anna Shill along with the Summer Rocks live band and production team are collaborating for a week of performance and creative arts discovery while producing a live show.

“In one week we will put on a show that rocks and we will rehearse and perform that show and we will do it together and have a blast while we are doing it,” said Shill.

“This is all about learning while doing and enjoying every moment of that process.”

Week one, the Creative Kids camp for children ages seven to 11, will give youth the opportunity to develop new performance skills as well as be engaged in a number of arts related activities supervised by guest artists.

The week two Open Stage camp will focus primarily on performance and the open stage and will be for ages 12 to 16.

Camps run July 11 to 18 (ages seven to 11) and July 20 to 26 (ages 12 to 16).
