“The enthusiasm of students and instructors was contagious. The learning was amazing!” -Linda Kelly, Parent summer 2012
“Just wanted to say a big thank you for the VIVA Band camp. It was by far the best money we have ever spent on a summer camp!” – Jennifer Marquis, parent summer 2011
Hailed as “the best money ever spent on a summer camp,” VIVA Camp is an experience not to be missed this summer! The camp is designed to give children ages 9-13 the opportunity to learn to play a band instrument just for fun! Choose to start from scratch in Beginner I or gather more skills on the instrument you learned at camp last year or from your school band in Beginner II. Awesome explorations of sound, rhythm and movement add a unique learning experience for the campers too! Team building, Group lessons, full band rehearsals, dedicated staff, tasty snacks and the return of “Mozart’s Corner” promise this year’s camp to be the best ever!!
BEGINNER I – Choose your instrument and let the fun begin! Children, ages 9-13, can learn to play a musical instrument with high level instruction in group sessions as well as experience playing in a full band! The students will have a chance to explore rhythm and sound with singing workshops, visual art, dance and percussion. A mini concert will be presented to family and friends at the end of this full week!
Choose from the following Instruments!
No experience required!
- French horn
- Trombone or Tuba
Need an instrument? No problem! Instrument fees are included in the camp fee and will be yours to keep for the duration of camp! Information will be made available on the final day of camp for those wishing to continue renting their instruments!
BEGINNER II – This session runs simultaneously to Beginner I and is for past VIVA Campers that feel they need a bit more practice on their chosen instruments. Become a real expert as you play challenging music in band by using the skills you learned last summer and throughout the school year! If you decided to play another instrument in school that was different from at VIVA Camp, that is ok too as long as you have some experience on the instrument you wish to play at camp!
