Youth Concert Scheduled for June 22 at 6 p.m. - Featuring Summer Music Camp Participants

TAKOMA PARK, MD (June 22, 2014) The public is invited to attend the Summer Lunch & Learn Music Camp Youth Concert on Tuesday, July 22 at 6 p.m. in the Student Activities Center at Washington Adventist University. The concert will feature performances by middle-school participants of the Summer Lunch & Learn Music Camp.

The summer camp program is operated on the campus of Washington Adventist University for children and teens, ages 7 to 16.  The camp is a collaborative effort with the City of Takoma Park, Montgomery County government, Montgomery County Public Schools, and Educare – a research-based program that prepares at-risk children for school.  

The program provides a much-needed resource for low-income families who struggle to find affordable activities for their children in the summer. It offers participants an opportunity to rediscover their creativity; improve their social skills in an environment of cooperation and respect; explore new interests; and enhance their quality of life.  Exposure to the WAU campus, professors and students also serves to inspire participants to seek higher education.

The concert will be held in Building 5, which also houses the university’s gymnasium.  Free parking is available. Washington Adventist University is located at 7600 Flower Ave., in Takoma Park, Md. 20912.
