CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- The University of Northern Iowa's Community Music School will offer Camp Musicmania from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., June 11 through 15, in Russell Hall on the UNI campus. The camp is for students who will be in grades K through nine in the fall.

Students in grades K through one will meet daily from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Students in grades two through nine will meet from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Camp Musicmania is a multifaceted music and arts camp with a primary purpose to provide fun and innovative activities that will engage campers in the excitement of exploring singing, dancing, drama, playing small percussion instruments and using music to tell a story. Campers will be divided into age appropriate groups and will work toward the production of a camp musical for parents and friends on the last day. Instructors include UNI faculty, area music educators and UNI music and art education majors.

Deadline for registration is June 1. Cost per student is $60 for grades K through one and $85 for grades two through nine, with limited scholarships available. Camp cost includes all supplies, snacks and camp T-shirt; grades two through nine will bring their own lunch.
