Spark Imagination this Summer at Camp Sawtooth

Camp Sawtooth, for ages 3 – 11, is designed to spark imagination, encourage self-expression, and make a lifelong connection to visual art. Students discover their own artistic voice and develop a sense of pride in their skills. Sawtooth offers high-quality art education for students, while also teaching innovative thinking, perseverance, creativity, collaboration, and more! Small class sizes allow for individualized experiences for young students in a creative and fun environment.

Each summer Sawtooth School for Visual Art offers eight uniquely themed, week-long, full-day and half-day camps. Before and after care is also available. Students learn, create, and explore the world around them through exposure to art and artists! For more information, and to register, visit:

Camps Weeks: June 17 – August 9.
9 AM – 5 PM, with extended hours available before and after.


Summer Camps and Music Classes at UNCSA Community Music School

Summer is a great time to introduce a child to music study or help continuing students grow over the summer break! The CMS provides students of all ages the opportunity to study with highly skilled teachers who are equally at home introducing a beginner to an instrument, mentoring an aspiring professional, or helping an adult student connect to an instrument long relegated to the attic or garage. Children 6 months old and up can join a parent and child class called “Mini Maestros.” Juliet Gervasi’s “Sing and Strum” ukulele summer day camp and introductory guitar camps are popular options with elementary and middle-school students.  Rock camps are available for students ages 12-17. Jazz players can audition for the 1st annual Courtenay Wynter Sr. Memorial Jazz Camp, offered free to rising 8th – 12th graders.

Visit their website or contact Artistic Director Cameron MacManus at for more information.


Feel your best the FASTer Way

Self-care is giving the world the best of you, instead of what is left of you. Health and Wellness Coach, Marybeth Barrett says she learned the hard way that if she kept putting her self-care last, not only did she suffer, but her whole family suffered. As most moms know, we often don’t have the energy to wear our my hats, which ends up in us feeling grumpy and taking it our on others.

If self-care is a priority for you, and you are ready to gain energy, sleep better, lose weight/burn fat, improve your mood, increase your metabolism, regulate your hormones, lose weight, get rid of brain fog and just feel your best, then join Marybeth’s virtual fitness and nutrition program. She will teach you five different strategies to help you take back your health and wellness and to get you looking and feeling your best.
