While some folks are enjoying the last couple of days of spring break, others are gearing up for summertime.
The folks at Sam Houston State’s College of Fine Arts and Communication are already getting excited about stuff they have planned for young people in June and July.
This week, the College of Fine Arts and Mass Communication at SHSU announced eight specialized summer camp programs for middle school, junior high, high school and college students in the areas of art, music, theater and dance.
SHSU has been providing outstanding summer opportunities for students for more than 75 years and has given generations of students an exciting and positive experience. Taking place between the months of June and July, these fine arts events will be hosted on the university’s Huntsville campus.
“Our summer programs continue to grow offering more for young, creative minds,” said Emily Binetti, marketing coordinator for the college. “This summer, in addition to several overnight camps that have been a part of our summer tradition, we’re now introducing two new day camp programs — the Now & Next Dance Mentoring Program and Animation Creation Camp.”
Another new offering to the summer lineup is The Broadway Artists Intensive with Greg Graham, who is currently the choreography consultant for the Broadway revival of “On The Town,” scheduled to hit Broadway later this year.
Graham is originally from Houston and is a graduate of Sam Houston State’s musical theatre program. This summer high school and college students will have the opportunity to train with Graham and many other Broadway veterans and performers in the three-week summer intensive on campus.

Junior High Band Camp
The Junior High School Band Camp is a unique opportunity for young wind and percussion players in grades 6 through 8 to experience the band world outside of their own school program. The camp is structured to improve individual performance skills, while allowing the campers to interact with other young musicians in music and social events.
