True and Harmony attended three-week sessions. Their day started at 6:45 a.m. After classes and dinner, they had time to relax before the call to quarters at 9 p.m. True joined the music camp for percussion and had art as his elective, with classes in arts and crafts, painting, and drawing. Harmony participated in their dance camp, concentrating on jazz, modern dance, ballet and improv. At the end of the three weeks, there was a performance open to the community.
