OUR EDUCATIONAL OUTREACH
Schools and Camps
Monday, May 4 and Tuesday, May 5
Outreach to young people has always been an important part of the FLCMF mission, including free concert admission for all students and free, live programs in public schools and camps. As of 2020 bringing music to youngsters is our primary focus, funded entirely by supporters of the FLCMF. When a Festival string ensemble travels to public schools in Penn Yan, Dundee and Gorham, students at all grade levels will enjoy entertaining music, talk, history and trivia along with concerts by world-class musicians performing works by major composers. Some fortunate music students also can participate in master classes with Maestro Clark and en ensemble.

Another ensemble performs and interacts with campers at three Finger Lakes locations. Camp Seneca Lake has been making summers special for children in grades three through 11 for 90 years. It is owned by the Jewish Community Center of Rochester. Also on Seneca Lake, Camp Whitman, a summer facility of the Presbytery of Geneva, provides a fun, safe place where campers can learn about themselves and other and explore and question faith issues. It accepts both children and adults with developmental disabilities. Camp Good Days and Special Times on Keuka Lake is dedicated to improving the quality of life for children, adults and families whose lives have been touched by cancer and other life challenges. Campers have a chance to regain some of what cancer, sickle cell anemia or violence has taken away from them.
