This year’s summer camp was a great success, and students learned a lot while having fun with the volunteers and staff. The performance of “The Jungle Book” also went well, as students were able to showcase their talents and the hard work they put in for the last week.

We hope that you were able to join us, but if not, there are plenty more opportunities in the near future. Classes will resume in September, and our AMASE annual concert will be held in November. See you then!
