Jammers Mini-Camp

These camps are open to children new to the Jammers. They are fun, interactive, 2-hour sessions that happen a few times throughout the season. Sign-ups are on a first-come, first-serve basis and are open to 1st-5th graders. We have two camps a season (Fall and Winter). This is a great introduction to the Jammers and will help you gauge your child's interest level.

Jan. 22, 9:00-11:00 am for grades 1-2

 
Jammers Summer Experience Camp

These week-long, half-day camps are open to children new to Jammers, and serve as an audition for our performance groups. Camp participants will experience firsthand the high energy, uniquely hands-on teaching style of award-winning educator David Reynolds, Jr. and the Jammers camp staff.  Children will have daily sessions in drum set, hand drumming, and mallet percussion ensemble.  No prior musical experience is required.  Your child may only attend one week of camp.  The cost is $200 per child.  Note:  If your child is offered and accepts a spot in Jammers Red or Black, there is a rehearsal camp week of June 27 - July 1 so the ensemble can get started on their repertoire for the season.
