Gluck Summer Arts Program

Are your children interested in Theater, Music, Dance, Writing or ….. Super Heroes?  This year’s Gluck Fellows Program of the Arts Summer Camp might be something of interest to you.  The theme this summer is SuperHumanities: When Art Powers Collide. Sounds like fun, right?


The Gluck Program of the Arts is a FREE summer camp for mature 14-18 year olds.  The one week camp takes place on the UCR campus from June 15-19, 2015. The goal of the Gluck Summer Camp of the Arts is to provide mature teenagers with an intensive educational experience in the arts and to expand their understanding of the history, theory and application of the various arts disciplines that emphasize individual growth. Students participate in workshops which are led by an energetic crew of UCR Gluck Fellows.

This year’s program features four workshop sessions which run from 9:00am until 3:30pm.  The workshops are as follows:

Monday, June 15th – Thursday, June 18th :

9:00 – 10:00      MorningMixer games and icebreakers for all camp members with a Morning Workshop
10:00-12:00    Morning Workshops (choose Spoken Word Creative Writing OR Physical Dance Theatre S.P.L.A.T.)
12:00-12:30    Lunch break (bring your packed lunch or buy lunch at the HUB)
12:30-1:30       HomeRoom – Art, music and dance activities for all participants on ARTS Lawn near Gluck Office
1:30-3:30      Afternoon Workshops (choose Hip Hop Hooray OR Karaoke Kamp)

The entire program culminates with a performance event on the last day of camp where the students participate in a final performance event. (Friday, June 19th)

Here is a snippet of activities from a past Summer Camp showing just  a few of the fun activities that took place during the “HomeRoom” sessions:

This year’s HomeRoom sessions will feature workshops where the students will be creating superhero costumes using a “rags to rad” philosophy. The “costumes” might be used for the final performance event or they just might become the next fad on campus, who knows?

This program offers a fabulous opportunity for mature teens who are interested in the arts to participate in college level workshops with like minded peers.  Being on campus at UCR also offers the college experience to the participants encouraging and preparing them for attending college or University.  For information on this program, visit the Gluck Summer Camp website.  Detailed information about the classes and application forms are available there.  The deadline for applications is Friday, May 20th.

The Gluck Fellows Program of the Arts at UCR is made possible through the generosity of the Max H. Gluck Foundation
