Thanks for helping us celebrate our 25th MAT Camp Birthday in style! We hope you had fun participating in all our celebration fun – from treasure hunting to sharing your MAT Camp memories.
Proof that participating (and persistence) in all the qualifying activities pays off! The Grand Prize included art materials, 2 General Admission tickets to the 2022 Evanston Bluegrass Festival, 2 Weekend Passes to the 2023 Ceili at the Roundhouse Celtic Festival and a full scholarship to the 2023 MAT Camp! (A $150+ prize package).
(Has taught the longest at MAT Camp! Now that’s devotion! We’re so glad she comes back every year! Plus, what’s MAT Camp without “Forbidden Foods”? The winner receives a half-ride scholarship to the 2023 MAT Camp!)
(Have participated in MAT Camp individually or as a family for 13 years or more! Winners receive either tickets to the 2022 Evanston Bluegrass Festival or Weekend passes to the 2023 Ceili at the Roundhouse Celtic Festival.)
(In May & June, we asked for your ideas on how you wanted to celebrate MAT Camp’s 25th Birthday. And wow! Your ideas were amazing! Winners had their idea implemented and received additional chances for the Grand Prize Drawing.)
(25 Silver MAT Camp Celebration coins were hidden all around Davis Middle School. Campers were encouraged to treasure hunt throughout the week to find the coins. And you did! Winners kept the coin & selected an item from the “treasure chest”.)
20 close-up images of various art, dance, music, & theater-related items were posted daily from July 1st – 17th. By naming and even guessing at what the object was, Facebook participants received a chance for the Grand Prize drawing.
