2014 MUSIC & ARTS CAMP:
In July of 2014, FOSAA sponsored its first Music and Arts Camp at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre. The Camp was offered free of charge to all children. With funds raised from last year’s Celebrity Guitar Auction/Raffle, we were able to cover materials, instructors fees, meals and snacks and other expenses.
Fifty-five children were divided into groups by age, playing ukuleles, constructing Muppet puppets, making and playing drums, learning proper vocal techniques and learning and recording an original song.
The culmination of the week was a performance for the family and friends of the campers. Because of the Camp’s success, plans will be underway soon for another camp experience in the summer of 2015.
The Friends of the St. Augustine Amphitheatre, Inc. (FOSAA) is a non-profit organization committed to making the Amphitheatre more accessible to the community. FOSAA is a private, distinct and separate organization from the St. Augustine Amphitheatre and St. Johns County. It was created in 2009 and installed its Board of Directors in early March 2010. FOSAA received 501(c) 3 tax exempt status soon after and has since become a visible presence in the community.
