Band Camp Junior is a week-long day camp for kids ages 7-12 (grades 2-7) who want to explore their love of music through games and demonstrations with new friends. Have fun with hands-on introductory workshops with concert band instruments and experience a wide variety of music styles. Take part in a fabulous concert at the end of the week to show off your skills.
No musical background is required!
ANNOUNCEMENT – Band Camp Junior is cancelled
While the province has stated that day camps may remain open, the facts are that instrumental music requires a lot of air going into and out of instruments, and we know that COVID-19 is transmitted via aerosol particles. We just don’t want anyone to get sick or to take illness home, so this year, it’s best that we not meet in person.
Led by keen musicians and educators, campers enjoy participating a wide variety of musical activities, from bucket drumming to singing and everything in between. Try out the different types of band instruments alongside dedicated music mentors.
There’s also lots of fun with games, camp projects and team-building activities. At the end of the week, campers have a final day pizza party while preparing for Music and Mocktails, a free mini-concert for parents and friends.
Band Camp Junior is $295 for the week. Before and after care is available for an additional charge. Students bring a nut-free lunch and snacks. Camp spaces are limited, so early registration is recommended. Click here for registration info.
For campers with financial challenges, we have partnered with local community funding organizations such as the Halton Learning Foundation. Please contact us for more details.
