G.L.O.W. Summer Camp!

We are excited to announce that the registration page for G.L.O.W. Summer Camp at the Women's Center For Creative Work is LIVE! Please register here!


It will be held from July 23-August 3 from 8:30am-1:00pm Monday-Friday.


The registration page is not on our website at the moment, so please forward this email to anybody planning to enroll in our summer camp. A flyer will be provided soon.


An important note: We only have a limited amount of spots. If a child does not show up for more than three consecutive days, we will drop them from the camp roster and take someone off the waitlist.

ETMLA SUMMER Strings Program


At Education Through Music-Los Angeles (ETM-LA), we take the fun of traditional day camp and mix it with hands-on music education. ETM-LA is thrilled to host a string ensemble program for BEGINNING AND INTERMEDIATE students learning violin, viola, or cello and entering 4th, 5th, or 6th grades. We look forward to having your child join us this summer!
