Summer Music Camps at the Conrad Centre – Music Discoverers and Music Explorers Camps for ages 5-13!

Our campers from previous summers have had a blast!

How do you give your child a fun way to discover the world of music and find the instrument that's right for them? How do you give a budding young musician the opportunity to explore music further? Bring them to all-day CAMP at the Conrad Centre! Camp weeks are:

Week I (Mozart):  July 6 – 10
Week II (Vivaldi):  July 13 - 17
Week III (Beethoven):  July 20 - 24

Please note: each camp qualifies for a tax receipt equivalent to the value of registration fees. For more information, visit the CRA webpage here.

Music Discoverers (Ages 5 – 7) & Music Explorers (Ages 8 - 13)

Each day, the campers enjoy the following:

1. instruction on different orchestral instruments - a dozen or so different instruments within the week

2. professional teachers showing how to enjoy playing each instrument

3. warmup activities with Music for Young Children**

4. a FUN mix of music, physical activity and art

5. *free tickets to a KWS Family Concert for all campers

Our Music Discoverers Camp (MDC) provides young children who are relatively new to music the chance to try out a variety of instruments and learn about music through singing and play! Our Music Explorers Camp (MEC) allows older children with and without musical experience to dig deeper into their musical interests and learn about specific instruments, technique, rhythm, active listening, and composition! Learning percussion at the CCPA

Each day will focus on a different instrument family - strings, brass, woodwinds, percussion & voice. Our experienced teachers will teach mini
music lessons on a variety of instruments, and then campers take part in fun and engaging physical, musical and artistic activities throughout each day. The week culminates in an optional performance for peers and parents!

New this summer, each week will have a different composer theme where all the activities will relate to learning about the composer.   MDC and MEC run concurrently from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm each weekday, with early drop-off/late pick-up options.

Week I (focus on Mozart):  July 6 – 10
Week II (focus on Vivaldi):  July 13 - 17
Week III (focus on Beethoven):  July 20 - 24

**We are beyond excited to have Music for Young Children working with us again this year!  Music for Young Children is a global music education program that is taught on 3 continents with more than 24,000 students annually and 900 teachers.  They are well known for their comprehensive music education program tailored to the strengths and abilities of young children, making MYC a great addition to our summer camp.
