Super Sonic Sound Camp with Dace's Rock 'n' More (Ages 8-12)
07/22/19 - 07/26/19

Dace's Rock 'n' More Music Academy and Steamboat Studio are combining forces and resources for a one-of-a-kind day camp. You'll spend about half of each day rocking out with Rock 'n' More Music Academy and about half of each day learning about the science and art behind the music. The camp culminates with a final gallery to showcase what students have been working on.

With Rock 'n' More you'll learn about many genres of music and the instruments that are used to play them. Then you'll learn to play a song or two, start a band, and perform for family and friends at the end of the week.

With Steamboat Studio you'll make music-inspired artwork, play with color and light, "slow down" a guitar string, make patterns with your voice, and design a logo and poster for your band! Scholarships are available, please email jball@covingtonwa.gov to inquire.

Registration is through the City of Covington. The Register button above will take you to the class page on the City's registration system.

Inventor's Workshop (Ages 6-12)
08/05/19 - 08/07/19
Class Fee: $ 198.00

Bring your imagination to life in this fun and creative workshop that’s all about inventing! We’ll get warmed up with creative problem-solving activities and take apart some toys and electronics to see how they work. Each day, we'll brainstorm ideas for things you'd like to invent. Think of a problem and invent a solution, or come up with something completely new! Stretch the limits of your imagination and defy the impossible. Record your ideas in your own inventor’s notebook and build a 3-D model of your favorite idea to take home! Each day, we’ll read a short story for inspiration, do some play silly games to get you thinking outside the box, and learn about some famous and not-so-famous inventors and their inventions. Get inspired and create something amazing!
