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.
Registration for our fall mini camps will open Sept. 6th at 9 am.
Mini Camp for 3rd, 4th & 5th graders: Oct. 21, 4:30-6:30 pm
Mini Camp for 1st and 2nd graders: Oct 22, 9:00-11:00 am
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.
Summer Experience Camps have ended for 2022, but please consider a fall mini camp if your child is interested in seeing what Jammers is like. Details will be posted above, or you can sign up for our newsletter to receive an email when registration opens. Scroll down to the bottom of this page to sign up for our newsletter. Questions?
