BAR HARBOR— Summer Festival of the Arts (SFOA) continues its 2021 season with the 43rd annual Summer Vacation Camp, held for three weeks in July.
Summer camp is a Mount Desert Island tradition that started in 1979. SFOA continues to provide whole-child health through time away from technology, opportunities to spend time outdoors in nature and an immersive experience with visual and performing arts.
This year’s summer camp will be a hybrid with a limited number of in-person students and teachers. Registration will be limited to three groups of eight campers; the three groups will be split into rising first and second grades, third and fourth grades, and fifth through eighth grades, with two instructors in each age group.
COVID-19 protocols outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will be observed throughout the in-person camp with many SFOA activities practiced outdoors. Virtual classes will be offered in tandem to in-person classes and will be announced at a later date.
Registration opens May 1 at www.sfoamaine.org.
