Evolutionary Arts Life Foundation Inc. began the summer of 2017 with over 50+ campers due to the lack of arts programming for students in the north side of the county. During the inaugural summer season, we incorporated the music track by offering string orchestra, concert band, jazz band, marching band & drum-line. The following year we added acting, dance and musical theater which culminated into a full performance of the broadway musical "The Wiz" including a full live youth orchestra. In year three we added several additional disciplines to the curriculum such as ukulele, keyboard, chorus, music technology, personal fitness and personal development. In 2019, the camp grew to 160+ combined students. Our end of camp performances were entitled "Celebrating Music in Films" and the Broadway musical "Annie" accompanied by the Evolutionary Arts Youth Orchestra. Due to Covid-19, 2020 resulted in a virtual arts summer camp. The performance featured camper experiences during quarantine. We were back in person in 2021 with about 120 campers and offered a tuition free full scholarship program to help our community! In addition to our stellar arts curriculum we offered an academic component to help amend the learning loss of students due to the Covid -19 pandemic. Our culminating activity consisted of a "Back to the Future", showcase of all classes taught during the 6 week camp. Summer 2022 brought a new sense of accomplishment as we serviced about 220 students. The 6 week program included workshops with nationally known performing artists, new electives such as fashion and content creation, and two culminating performances, "Mardi Gras" and the broadway musical "The Little Mermaid, accompanied by our students in the "Evo Arts Pit Orchestra".
