Summer Jazz Camp
Summer Jazz Camp, a week-long music day camp, provides a relaxing,
fun educational atmosphere for young musicians so that they can focus on the “how to” of performing in small and
large jazz ensembles. As a result, they will simultaneously develop their overall musical skills.
The Morning Session is designed to accommodate students of all experience levels. They will be assigned to entry level,
intermediate, or high school level ensembles according to age, and/or skill level.
The All Day Session accommodates high school level and more advanced younger students, affording them the
opportunity to experience more challenging ensemble music. In addition, the staff and counselors will also
develop additional ensembles or combo groups for gifted individuals.
Given these different group settings, campers of all skill levels will find themselves encouraged—and often inspired—to
become more creative, experienced and well-rounded musicians. They will share their skills with parents and friends when
they perform in concert on the last day of camp.
