All money must be in no later than June 12th as Mr. Lusas goes to Canobie Lake that day to get the tickets so students don’t have to wait in line on the 13th.

The MSMS Summer Photo Camp has only a couple of openings left for Summer 2018! Join us for 8 days of street photography! Each week we’ll travel to local cities/towns for extreme street photography and then learn Photoshop to enhance our work. Campers will learn to use a Nikon D3300 DSLR camera, develop an eye for composition, master workflow and photo finishing, all in preparation for an end-of-camp exhibition for friends and family. Bring your own camera or use one of ours!
