    Overview

    Explore your passion. Try something new. Immerse yourself. Explore something fun and earn college credit while doing it. Join William Peace University for one of two summer camps and you’ll earn one college credit hour for your future higher education enrollment.

    Our offerings include:

    Writing Music for the Screen:
    How do composers write music for video games, movies, and television? How is sound used in modern storytelling-based entertainment? Come find out! Whether you are an experienced musician or have never played a note, come spend the week being mentored and guided by a professional composer.

    You’ll learn:

    • The fundamentals of writing music for the screen.
    • The technology used by screen composers.
    • Basic theory, composition, score study — and even music psychology.
    • At the end of the week, you’ll show off a visual and aural presentation of original music written by the group for visual footage!

    No prior music knowledge or experience is required.

    Research in Stream Ecology:
    Budding biologist? Or do you love being outdoors? Join WPU biology professors in their long-term ecological study of Raleigh’s Crabtree Creek. You’ll get hands-on experience doing ecological research and immerse yourself in the world of science.

    In this camp you’ll:

    • Learn the basics of ecosystems.
    • Practice the scientific method.
    • Go on field trips to the creek for hands-on research.
    • Learn the best ways to collect macroinvertebrates and fish.
    • Analyze water samples.

    No prior biology or field experience is necessary.
