Long before American Idol began discovering and refining new talent or High School Musical or Glee tapped into the exuberance of young ensemble casts, Up with People pioneered these attributes while touring the world with their optimistic message of global cooperation and hope for the future. For more than 45 years, it has provided young adults an international, educational and intercultural experience that teaches service leadership and uses the performing arts to deliver messages of hope and goodwill throughout the world. Up with People in partnership with Camp Horizons has teamed up to provide a one-of-a-kind 3-week experience for 13 to 17 year olds. Camp Up with People is located 2 hours west of Washington DC, near Harrisonburg, Virginia. The camp is based on the core program of the international touring casts of Up with People: Performing Arts, Community Service, Leadership and Culture. Dates and Fees: The two camp sessions will take place from: July 1 21 and again from July 22 August 11 at Horizons at Valley Pike Retreat Center. The camp fee is $2,600. Further, Camp UWP will also reflect Up with Peoples international character where young individuals from many countries join the summer program. Throughout the three-week program, Camp UWP cast members will receive much of the performing arts training that Up with Peoples touring cast members go through including dance workshops, vocal training, stage movement and theatrical arts. Our counselors are actually former staff and cast members from Up with People. At the end of the three weeks, Camp UWP cast members will put on a free public performance, showcasing their talents, cultures and hopes for the world that reflects the Up with People spirit. Camp UWPs program will include typical camp activities, such as swimming, horseback riding, tubing and campfires as well as some other activities like zip-lining, rock climbing and high/low ropes courses.Campers will visit Washington, DC and be involved with community service projects in the Harrisonburg area.
