ARCHIVED INFORMATION as of June 4 2019
REMINDER TUESDAY 8 am Call Time for ALL Musician at Camp! We will be featured on FOX News!
Please continue to drop off your students prior to 9 am. We ask that parents do not come in unless necessary as we have several hundred students to register and place in ensembles. If you have paper work to submit please send it with your student. Drop off zones are on the NE side of the PAC and students will need to come in through the EAST door of the PAC (not the main lobby entrance). Park and drive as far East as possible helps with traffic congestion.
For day to day camp communication text CAMP19 to 480-787-0777 and communicate to us via text at this number. The MCC staff loves volunteering time to be with students and therefore the return of texts may not occur until after the teaching day is complete. IF you have an emergency and need to get a hold of your student please call MCC Public Safety at 480-461-7046.
