4 Music Camp Favorites

Summer Music Camp ranks at the top of the list for summer fun. Camp activities incorporate fun, friends, and music into a week of musical exploration. Many of our campers claim that Summer Camp is the highlight of their summer. Here are 4 reasons Summer Music Camp is a favorite activity for the summer.

Explore Musical Instruments

There’s always something new to explore in music-whether it’s a new song, a new sound, or a new skill. Summer camp offers a great introduction for campers who are interested in developing their musical talents. During camp, campers who are new to music have the opportunity to try out different instruments to decide their favorite instrument. Campers with musical experience are grouped with other campers with similar skills so they can enjoy taking the next step in their musical journey.

Play Music with other Campers

One of the unique opportunities campers enjoy during camp is making music with other musicians. During small group classes, students learn the importance of listening to other musicians, keeping a steady beat, and following the director. In playing together as a group, campers begin to transform the notes on a page into beautiful musical sounds. One of the highlights of camp is the Camp Celebration Recital on Friday when all campers join together to play the camp song. There’s something truly amazing that happens when everyone joins together to share their talents.

Make New Friends

Campers participate in small groups based on their age, musical interests, and musical abilities. Campers connect with other children who have their same interests. They play music together, hang out, and enjoy getting to know each other. Camp is a great way to build new friendships.

Have Fun Celebrating Music

Every camp activity is designed to share the joy of music with campers. We think music is an awesome gift from God and we want campers to have fun exploring the gift of music. We want to celebrate each camper’s unique talent as they learn new music.

The theme for 2017 Summer Camp is “The Amazing Race.” We’re going to have a great time exploring different speeds of music, following musical road maps, and playing with other musicians. During this fun-filled week, campers will enjoy exploring music, making new friends, and celebrating Jesus. We’d love for you to join us June 26-30 for this week of fun! Click here to sign up today.
