PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

This program is the perfect introduction to a 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 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!
