This year’s WHRHS Sending Districts Summer Music Camp will run from June 26 through July 19 at Central Middle School in Stirling, NJ, with a concert on July 18th at 10:00 am.  The program is sponsored by the Long Hill Township PTO and is open to all students entering grades 4-12 from any of the sending districts (and friends from other districts too!).  We offer classes for band, jazz band, orchestra, guitar, ukulele, and piano.  There are several levels of band and orchestra to accommodate everyone, and the ukulele/guitar/piano classes are for beginners.
Band and orchestra students receive a lesson and ensemble rehearsal every day, so students make about 4 months worth of progress in just 4 weeks!  We take kids from wherever they are and work to improve their skills while in a relaxing and social atmosphere.  The more kids that come, the better our program is and the more fun we all have!  New this year--we are doing an online registration.  Please go to Miss Varner’s website at https://sites.google.com/longhill.org/jvarner/home/summer-music-camp or scan the QR code found below.  The online registration, the brochure, and an informational video about the camp can all be found on that page.  After registering online, please send in a check made out to LHT PTO.  Checks should be sent to Miss Varner and are due by the child’s first day of camp:
Central Middle School
c/o Joelle Varner
90 Central Ave
Stirling, NJ 07980
Please come as many days as possible.  We are extremely flexible, so we do not need to know your exact schedule—you can come any days that work for you.  Signups will go all the way through the first week of the program.  There is also a $20 discount for signing up before June 15!
If you are unsure about which class to select, or if you have any other questions about the program, please email jvarner@longhill.org or vsorensen@gbtps.org and we’d be happy to help.  We hope to see you this summer!

BOX TOP MARCH MADNESS
