All camps are hosted at Studio Bell and designed to give youth aged 9-15 a chance to create and learn together. Learn more about all of our camps and register your kids for a musical experience they won’t forget.

Music from the Ground Up

Ages: 9 to 11

Location: Studio Bell

Duration: One week

Come learn about all things music!

Perfect for beginner musicians and kids new to music, this camp is packed with activities that build skills and musical knowledge from the ground up. Explore the inner workings of sound and learn about how music is made, all while immersed in the engaging exhibitions inside Studio Bell. Campers will have an opportunity to create their own soundscapes, try their hand at new instruments, and get their first taste of songwriting by writing their own lyrics to famous tunes. At the end of the week, campers will share their new skills and songs at the Camps Showcase.
