Get Started Music & Arts Performance Camp (drop off) | Ages 5+
July 14 - July 18 & August 18 - August 22 | 9AM - 3PM
Drop off your little ones to our Get Started Music and Arts Performance Camp. And then go to the beach, just a few blocks away! (We're totally serious.) While your kids are with us they will have an opportunity to discover new instruments and share their enthusiasm for creating music in a fun and low-pressure environment. They will be playing an instrument from day one and stay engaged! During this weeklong camp, we'll teach them to play songs they love and how to work together in a group. At the end of the week they'll put on a mini-concert for you. Campers will also work on set design, creating their own stage costumes and homemade instruments. This camp will allow your kids to strengthen their social skills, build self-confidence and understand the value of focus, discipline and working together as a team. Music education is the driving force behind personal growth and academic excellence. Your kids will leave this camp feeling excited and inspired to discover their potential.
