sponsored through colleges and universities. If your students are participating in one of these camps, they are eligible to apply to the Mokena Music Booster Summer Camp Scholarship. Students who are participating in a summer music camp (not our Band and Choir camp at Mokena) can apply to receive some financial assistance from the Mokena Music Boosters. The application will be due to Mrs. Cheney or Mrs. Bussean by Wednesday, April 30th for students interested in applying for this scholarship. While turning in an application does no guarantee a scholarship, the boosters to their best to help as many students as possible.
The application will be emailed out to families, hard copies will be made available in the music room, and it has been put on the Documents section of the website.
If you are unaware, there are many summer music camps for Jr. High students at
local universities. Here are some of the most popular for our students:
University of Illinois: http://isym.music.illinois.edu/
Eastern Illinois University: http://www.eiu.edu/music/camps_band.php
Illinois State University: http://summersymposium.illinoisstate.edu/junior/concert/
Blue Lake Summer Camp: http://www.bluelake.org/summer_school_of_the_arts.html
University of Wisconsin Whitewater: http://www.uww.edu/ce/camps/music/percussion
While this is not a comprehensive list, it is a starting point if you’re interested in learning about some local options. If you learn of other camps (perhaps suggested through private lesson teachers) you can still apply for the scholar
