Santa Maria Recreation & Parks Offering Pacific Drum Camp for Teens

The City of Santa Maria Recreation & Parks Department is offering Pacific Drum Camp, a new camp for teenagers designed to discover their musical and creative talent.

Participants will learn basic music skills and performance techniques using urban style “drums” made of plastic. A performance is planned at the end of each camp session.

No prior experience required.

Pacific Drum Camp will be offered Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to noon at the Maramonte Community Center, 620 E. Sunrise Drive, for two weekly sessions:

» Session 1: July-25

» Session 2: July 28-Aug. 1

The registration fees for each session are $50 for Santa Maria residents and $60 for non-Santa Maria residents. An additional $20 materials fee is due at the first class meeting.

Questions may be directed to youth specialist Charles Miller at 805.925.0951 x515.

— Dennis Smitherman is a recreation supervisor for the City of Santa Maria.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
