Music from Camp

This year we have an exciting range of music from cartoons movies, including The Lion King, The Incredibles, and Brave. This blog will just feature samples of the music you will work on at camp:

The Incredibles


The Lion King

There will also be ensemble music that your coach will pick. I personally would love to hear the Sailor Moon Theme song, or The theme to Batman: The Animated Series. What would you like to hear?

MVYSO Camp Contests!

Last year we did our first ever Costume Contest, and it was so fun, we are doing it again!

We ask that the kids come dressed as their favorite cartoon character, whether it's Snow White or Bugs Bunny.
It can be exactly like the character, or a little different, for example:


Costume Contest
Theme: Any animated cartoon or movie character, based or the music we are playing at camp, or not. Contest on Thursday, judging and awards at lunch.
Ages 6-8
Ages 9-12
Ages 13-18
For each age group there will be a Best in Age Group, Most Original, Most Authentic, and Most Creative.

Though you might want to think twice if you are considering a cape.....

There will also be the annual "Decorate Your Folder" contest. We will take pictures of all the folders and hand out prizes at lunch on Friday.

Folder Contest
Ages 6-8
Ages 9-12
Ages 13-18
For each categorie there is a Best in Age Group, Most Creative, Most Thematic, and Most Artistic.

We collect the folders to be judged before lunch of Thursday, take a picture of each one with the name of the artist, then judge then that day after camp, and award the prizes on Friday

I will be dressing up as random characters through camp as well, just to give you a little inspiration. ;)
So, I will see you at camp!
