Minnesota Conservatory for the Arts is so excited to announce that we will be partnering with the Winona YMCA this summer. We will be bringing our top notch instructors, curriculum, and teaching tools on-site to the YMCA (207 Winona Street, Winona, MN) to offer new opportunities for members of the community to explore the arts. YMCA staff is even able to offer chaperones to aide younger children in getting to and from YMCA Childcare and other Y programs to these camps which will allow parents to work-out during this time. All of the week-long camps are only $35 for YMCA Members and $45 for Non-Members. Registration is handled through the YMCA. For more information call Shelby Wagner at 507-454-1520 or email swagner@winonaymca.org.  Click here for a PDF of the flyer and see camp descriptions below:
