From ancient legends to the latest Star Wars film - we love stories about heroes and their journeys to reward. Send your middle-schooler on their own Journey this summer through the arts at Juniata College. They’ll leave the ordinary world to explore unknown territories in ceramics, theatre, art, and media, guided by their mentors (Juniata faculty!). Along the way, they will meet challenges, develop their imaginations, and exercise creativity and problem-solving skills. On the final day (Friday), they will emerge triumphant and tell their stories through performance and art works so parents and friends can cheer their success!
