Sumer Camp 2020 Cancelled


After much discussion and deliberation; due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the stringent protocols set forth by CDC for Day Camps, the Parks and Recreation Dept. along with the Charles A. Melton Arts and Education Center have decided to cancel our joint summer camp for 2020. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. We cannot, in good faith, ensure the health and well being of the children and staff during these difficult times.

Any family that has made a deposit will receive a full refund in the very near future.

Bands that have applied for the Turks Head Music Festival on June 7th.

The festival has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Date is TBD. Currently we are looking at late Aug. 2020.

Please check back for details, we will post them as they become available.

We will be reaching out to the chosen acts in the near future.
