Music Exploration Camp

At our Music Exploration Camps, children entering grades 2 – grade 6 will meet new friends while learning about music- by making music!  Campers will sing, drum, and play ukulele every day- AND have an opportunity to meet instruments through performances from our amazing Conservatory faculty. No prior experience is needed, but an enthusiasm for music and fun is absolutely required! On the last day of our week together, it will be the campers’ turn to take the stage and perform in a final showcase that will be open for all to attend!

My 14 year old enjoyed his summer camp experience. The final performance was amazing and the instructors were top notch. We are looking forward to returning!
