Weeklong music and video production camps for high school age students will be offered this summer at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point through the College of Fine Arts and Communication (COFAC) and Continuing Education.

The Camp COFAC-Music and Camp COFAC-Video Production camps will be held June 18-24, with instruction by UW-Stevens Point faculty members. Registration is now open for both camps for students entering grades 9–12 as well as graduating seniors. Fees include all workshops, supplies, meals, lodging and evening social activities.

Camp COFAC-Music is open to vocalists, composers and instrumentalists of strings, woodwinds, brass, percussion and piano. During the week students immerse themselves in music, working closely with faculty members on their primary instrument in daily master classes and group lessons as well as large and group ensembles. Evening recitals, recreational activities and a public concert on Saturday, June 24, are also included. The camp is directed by Mathew Buchman, a professor in the Department of Music. The cost is $600.

Camp COFAC-Video Production participants will have five full days of instruction, including daily workshops in screenwriting, video camera operation, audio production, lighting, acting and editing. The week culminates in a screening of campers' original work on Saturday, June 24. The camp is directed by Chris Shofner, a media production professor and adviser of the student television program within UW-Stevens Point's Division of Communication. The cost is $650.
