Kids making music at Music Mania Camp

Children in Columbia participate in an annual music camp at no cost.

Music Mania is a music camp held at Washington Street United Methodist Church each summer for children ages 4 to rising 6th grade.

Each day during the camp from 8:45 to 11:45 a.m., camper will participate in activities like drumming, singing, xylophones, tone chimes. There will also be crafts, snacks and special
guest musicians.

This year, the camp will feature the music of Fish Tales by Kathy Hill and Melanie Mosely Morris. According to the authors, Fish Tales are stories that are “…supernatural, completely
factual and actually occurred…because these ‘Fish Tales’ come from God’s word.” Under the direction of Director of Music, Angela Powers with help from instructors Jordan Harper and Hannah Jessup, children will be a part of the “Fish Tales Fishing Tournament”.

Music Mania will conclude on Friday, June 19 with a mini-musical performance for parents and friends at 10:30 am in Threatt Hall at 1401 Washington Street in downtown Columbia, SC. The cost to attend is free, but a $20 donation to help cover the costs is greatly appreciated.
