"Experienced Music Students" can learn a new instrument after lunch from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00pm.
Students with 1 year or less experience should come to the 1:00 p.m. session until our staff can work them into the 9am program. This will give the younger student more confidence when performing with the more experienced students!
Concerts are the last week of camp and are not mandatory but sure are fun!
