PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

This program is the perfect introduction to our Music Camp. Our goal is to make sure your child is learning, but at the same time having fun too! As a parent, this is a great way to nurture a love of music in your child. Surrounded by their peers, children feel comfortable while trying out new things! The camp also provides a safe environment for our campers. Counselors escort the children throughout the day and are also on hand to help them in their activities. And don't forget to save the date- we end camp with a concert where every child performs with their class!
