Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this program, student musicians who attend Bemidji MusiCamp will: 1. Be a part of an enjoyable musical learning experience that includes musicians in grades 5 - 12. 2. Experience a high-quality final musical performance open to people from throughout Minnesota. 3. Be inspired to continued commitment to or participation in the musical arts. Surveys are used to evaluate our goals and include input from campers and the audience from the final concert. Ratings are on a scale of 1-6. Camper Sample: Rate how enjoyable camp was for you. Name something you learned at camp that you could teach to your own school/band/choir. Do you plan on seeking additional musical activities in your school or community? Audience sample: Rate the quality of the final concert. Rate how likely you are to seek future musical opportunities in your community.

Measurable Outcome(s)

1. On a scale of 1 - 6 (6 being most enjoyable), 177 of 208 respondents listed their experience as a 5 or 6. 2. 103 of 107 audience responses rated the final musical performance as a 5 or 6. 3. 88.4% of 199 responses stated their desire to seek additional activities in the musical arts.
