The Youth Retreat Center is nearby. It feels as if we are out in the country, but we are actually very near to Lafayette, Pleasant Hill and Martinez.
It is possible for both resident campers (over night) and for day campers to attend.
PLEASE enroll your son(s) for this Summer Music Camp!
The term "camp" may be misleading, in that along with all the fun associated with a traditional "camp", we also accomplish a lot of music learning at these sessions.
The opportunity of making friends, sharing experiences in and out of music do not always present themselves during the hectic school year. Traffic, school work, illnesses, et al, distract and interrupt school year classes. The summer music camp offers consistent and directed opportunities to learn and grow, musically and socially.
We nvite and encourage non-members to join us at camp and enjoy our program
Parent volunteers typically help camp staff prepare luncheon and dinner meals at the camp.
There is a equipped kitchen at the camp. Dinner meals are often themed: Chinese Dinner, Filipino Dinner, Greek Dinner (Mrs. Torrey's specialty), Swiss Dinner (Mr. Meyer's specialty).
Lifeguard on duty at all times at the pool (afternoon sessions scheduled daily).
Financial aid ("campership") assistance is limited but available.
