It's time now to meet the newest members of our Morning Mug Club -- brought to you by Holland Farms Bakery & Deli.
Artletics, at the Rome Art and Community Center, is a fun-filled, 8-week summer camp program to Explore, Create and Imagine with them! Camp Dates are June 29 to August 20, Monday through Thursday, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. with optional Rise-n-Shine (7 a.m. to 8:30 a.m.) and After Camp (3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m.) hours available. Lunch is provided. Camp is for kids ages 5 through 12 years and the cost is $175/week for members. *There is tuition assistance for those who qualify.
Artletics registration packets can be picked up and dropped off at the Rome Art and Community Center, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. or downloaded from the RACC website. Additional information is available by calling 315-336-1040. Check them out on Facebook too.
Days will be filled with activities to include fine arts, sports, drama and games sessions. Each week has a unique theme with motivational moments all day long. They are also incorporating activities that promote positive social-emotional skills. Art, music and drama appreciation sessions will be occurring all summer long with guest visits from musicians, thespians and artisans. They will host weekly art/drama shows to show off the accomplishments of the campers.
New this year is the Junior Counselor opportunity. This is a leadership development program for highly responsible young people ages 13 to 15, who have previously participated in Artletics. It is a chance to take on a leadership role in a positive learning environment with valuable on-the-job training. There are a limited number of spots available. Anyone interested in applying for this should contact the Director at RACC.
This year’s camp director is a past Artletics counselor, Elizabeth Libertella. She is a Rome native who is studying Elementary Education at SUNY Oneonta. She has been studying dance since the age of seven and is the Ballet Mistress at the John Hayes O’Neill Studio of Dance.
To run Artletics, a minimum number of campers is needed; however due to social distancing guidelines, we will have to cap the number of campers. It will be on a first come, first serve basis. Be sure to send your registration in soon, as they have limited space available.
Give them a call at 315-336-1040! They look forward to having you join them this summer for Artletics!
