Not all summer camps involve tents, canoes, lakes, and campfires. Camp COFAC is a week-long summer camp at the UW Stevens Point campus for high school aged students interested in art and music. The College of Fine Arts and Communication staff instructs students with new techniques and materials they may not have experienced before.
One of the instructors is Mark Brueggeman, who says Camp COFAC is in it’s 9th year. Brueggeman says the students come from all over Wisconsin, and they have a few students from other states. “What we provide is a week-long intensive art experience for high school students. Right now, they’re in class nine-and-a-half hours a day, so it’s pretty intensive.”
