Drum roll, please! 

Announcing the 11th Annual Eric 'RicStar' Winter Music Therapy Camp at Michigan State University's Community Music School (MSU/CMS) in East Lansing, Michigan. As we open the camp doors for our second, terrific season of celebrating music and abilities, there are a few important changes. 
First: New location in the beautiful, newly renovated Community Music School on Hagadorn Road right across from the gorgeous MSU campus. Second: We will have two camps this year, instead of just one. 

-Children and adolescents will make music on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, June 10th thru June 12, 2013. 

-Adults will attend camp on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, June 13th thru June 15th, 2013. 

-For returning campers, that means the yellow/green/pink/orange groups will meet Monday thru Wednesday. The blue/lime green/purple/red groups will meet Thursday thru Saturday. 

-Both camps will have an end-of-camp Be-a-Star Showcase and all campers will perform on stage. 

-Returning campers can mail in the required registration form with payment beginning TODAY! Camp fees are $195 per camper and $375 for two campers/same family. 

-Campers five years old and younger will have the option of attending in the morning or in the afternoon. The fee for the half-day campers is $100. 

-The 2013 RicStar's Camp will begin accepting NEW campers on March lst.  That means that returning campers must have their registration form/payment in the CMS office BEFORE March 1st.  Reminder: camp fills up quickly each year and the wait list rarely moves.

-Repeat: You must have your completed registration form/payment into the CMS offices asap in order to hold a place on the camper list. Please, make sure you sign the registration from on the front AND back. 

-Contact Cindy Edgerton, RicStar's Camp director, if you're intersted in receiving financial aid or if you have additional questions, including opportunities for campus lodging. 

RiStar's Camp focuses on ability, modeling inclusion and celebrating the power of music to change lives. We also have lots of fun. See you at summer camp!  

Note: CMS is currently updating their site with the 2013 info/registration. If needed, you can also download the 2013 registration form at my website, click on RicStar's Camp page.
