Music & Independence: Summer Drop-off Camps for Ages 3-5, 4-6, 5-7 Years

Each summer we design unique musical experiences that invite children to learn music and practice independence. Our Summer Drop-Off Camps are offered for ages 3-5, 4-6, and 5-7 years.  Camps vary from 90-120 minutes with a daily music lesson, craft time, center time, and more. This year we also have a Musical Theatre Camp for ages 6-12 years.

Your child will smile with assurance that you’ll be back as they settle into the routine that will encourage creativity and musical learning. We feature a large variety of instruments during these camps to invite musical curiosity and develop ensemble skills. Music brings about community in a way that invites new friendships and inclusion. The lessons spark your child’s passion for music as our teachers create a classroom experience that is customized for each group of children.


AFRICAN ADVENTURE / AGES 3-5 YRS: It’s a musical safari! Your child will travel to Africa each day to meet the animals on the Savannah, enjoy African drumming, and create African masks and more. The daily music lesson features singing, dancing, ensembles, and an introduction to a variety of African instruments. Plus, we will learn to count in Swahili and enjoy children’s literature focus on stories from the African continent.

OVER THE RAINBOW / AGES 4-6 YRS:  Travel to Ireland and discover the music of “The Emerald Isle.” Students will learn songs and dances from Ireland while exploring woodwind instruments, including the penny whistle.  Each day includes singing, dancing, ensembles, crafts, and instrument centers. This is a 90 minute drop off camp, 4 days in a row.
MUSICAL THEATRE HIGHLIGHT: Students will learn “Kerry Dancing” a traditional Irish song and perform on the last day.

AROUND THE WORLD / AGES 4-6 YRS:  Take a musical journey around the world featuring songs from our “Join The Parade” album. We’ll celebrate music from different countries with songs, instruments, and dances from Ireland, South America, Japan and more. This is a 90 minute drop off camp, 4 days in a row.
MUSICAL THEATRE HIGHLIGHT: Students will learn a medley of songs from around the world and perform on the last day.

CAMPFIRE UKULELE / AGES 5-7 YRS:  Here comes the smile after he learns his first chord on the Ukulele! She’ll be singing and strumming every day…Our Campfire Ukulele experience will teach basic ukulele chords and strumming with campfire songs you remember from your childhood. Each day includes singing, instruments, ensemble, dancing, craft projects and ukulele.

This is an ideal introductory experience for those students who eventually want to learn guitar. We have found that starting with Ukulele with only 4 strings brings early success that builds skills for an easier transition to guitar later.  We include a parent performance on the last day – so plan to arrive 15 minutes early on day 4.

Class meets 2 hours/day for 4 days. This is Drop Off Camp.  PLEASE NOTE: Each student will receive a Ukulele & Cloth Case with registration. If your student has a ukulele, please notify the office in writing for a $40 discount:
