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.
Typically, we have mini camps will in the fall and winter, but that may not be the case this year. Check back here for updates.
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. Summer Camp Registration is not currently open.
