Sizzling Summer Camps Summer break is almost here. Time to enroll the kiddos in some exciting activities to keep their minds stimulated and sharp over the break. We’ve rounded up a few great options around Las Vegas offering everything from STEM to Shakespeare to Circus arts. Be sure to register early as they fill up quickly. Discovery Children’s Museum | discoverykidslv.org Discovery Children’s Museum offers four weeklong sessions throughout the month of June for kids ages 6-9. Each dynamic camp offers kids a chance to explore a new topic through exciting interactive play and immersive experiences. Activities include creating stories and games through coding and computation; exploring design, architecture, experimentation and problem solving; drawing, painting, sculpting and printmaking; and discovering human anatomy and ecology. Stars and Skye Stargazing isn’t always easy in a town like ours, where the bright lights of the Strip cast an all-encompassing glow on the heavens above, but with the right equipment the desert sky is a dazzling spectacle to behold. On May 19th, join the Las Vegas Astronomical Society (LVAS) for a close-up peek at the stars at Skye Canyon Park (10111 W. Skye Canyon Park). With a 180-degree unobstructed view of the night sky, the location is perfect for observing the cosmos, as is the mid-May date when mighty Jupiter with its four Galilean moons and Venus will be ripe for viewing. You won’t have to search the universe with your naked eye; LVAS volunteers will be on hand with 10 telescopes and two scientific video cameras specializing in astrophotography. These knowledgeable stargazers will operate the equipment and point out cool celestial sightings like galaxies, asteroids, iridium flares and shooting stars. OUT ’N’ About Mad Science | madscience.org This year Mad Science is hosting several camps at various locations throughout the valley. Brixology (6.4-8) and Moving with Science (7.16-20) at Springs Preserve invite participants K-5 to learn about engineering while building with LEGO®bricks, learn about chemical reactions, and get in touch with the nature of birds and beasts. Additional camps include Eureka! Inventor’s Camp at Merryhill Summerlin (7.9-13) and Mad Science Mix-Up (7.23-27) at Congregation Ner Tamid. Rainbow Company Youth Theatre | rainbowcompany.org The nationally acclaimed, award-winning Rainbow Company Youth Theatre is offering three programs for varying age groups. Summer Youth Acting Conservancy (6.4-15 | ages 8-11) and Summer Teen Acting Conservancy (6.18-29 | ages 13-17) introduce participants to theatre arts through games, improvisation, acting exercising and rehearsal skills, each culminating in a performance at the end of camp. Summer Teen Tech Conservatory (6.18-29 | ages 12-16) gives a behind-the-scenes look at set construction, costume assembly, lighting and more. Circus Camp | trapezelasvegas.com Aspiring clowns, trapeze artists and acrobats in your life will find something to love both on the ground and soaring through the sky at Trapeze Las Vegas’ Circus Summer Camp.

Music on the Move Since it was established in 1998, The Las Vegas Philharmonic has become a vital part of the community and a point of pride, not just on the music scene, but in arts and education as a whole. Their mission has always been to perform music that enriches and educates while building a vibrant, culturally rich community. Their enrichment initiatives have touched the lives of youth all over the valley, presenting unparalleled opportunities for growth and development through musical arts. Soon they’ll be rolling out another program designed to deliver music and its benefits to more of Las Vegas. Aptly named The Music Van, the initiative will bring customizable programs out into the community. The diverse array of programming includes classroom music support using specially designed musical instruments for young children; instrument demos, chamber music and composition programs for middle schoolers and older students; performances and music therapy experiences for seniors; and engaging community events that give people the chance to play different instruments and jam with professional musicians. The van’s maiden voyage is set to begin in late 2018, travelling throughout Las Vegas, North Las Vegas and Henderson. The hope is that over a three-year period they’ll be able to branch out even further.
