The day after Labor Day is always a magical time for the newest children at El Sistema Oklahoma. As they enter the doors, they scramble to find their name tags to check the back of their tag.

Have you been wondering what your 10-13 year old child is going to do this summer? It’s a challenge when they are too old for childcare and too young to stay home alone. “Canvas & Tunes” camp focuses on having fun with art and music and will run June 5-August 17 and is available from 7:00 am – 6:00 pm.
