The Green Pastures Camp for the Performing Arts will once again make the Morgan County hills come alive with the sounds of music, dancing, theater, video production and laughter as applications are now being taken for this year’s camping seasons. Students entering grades five through twelve are eligible to attend for a fee of $35. Scholarships are also available. Registration can be made online at http://greenpasturesretreatcenter.org/events/list.
The Performing Arts Camp, located 16 miles west of Jacksonville on route 67, has been in operation for over thirty years and is organized and directed by Ken Bradbury and Chuck West. The fun-filled weekend features instruction in theater, music, video production, mime, dance and puppetry with hundreds of performances during the weekend. The registration fee covers all costs. A staff of 40 counselors will be on-hand all weekend to lead the campers in the various activities. The campers are housed in an air-conditioned dormitory setting with most activities indoors.
