    2021 Camp Information

    The Parkway School District is pleased to announce that the Parkway String Camp will be offered for all strings students who are entering grades fifth through eight in August.  String Camp will take place August 2 through August 6, 2021, from 9 a.m. to 12:00 noon at Parkway SOUTHWEST MIDDLE SCHOOL.  The camp fee is $70.00 per student for all fifteen hours of instruction (includes a camp T-shirt).

    All students must provide their own instruments and transportation (and be picked up by 12:15 p.m.)  Please note that we offer beginning/refresher viola, cello, and bass classes for students who would like to switch before the school year starts.  Students enrolling as 5th graders (not beginning a new instrument) should be able to read notes on the ‘D’ string!

    All Bass players must provide their own instrument.  Check out your school bass (ask your teacher) before school is over.

    During String Camp, students will be able to review their reading skills, develop new techniques, and prepare for the coming school year.  There will be small and large group instruction, guest artists, and a performance on the final day of camp.  We encourage your child to bring a light snack (no peanut products) and drink each day!

    Students will be required to provide their own masks and masks will be required to be worn the entire time at camp.
