MUSIC AND NATURE DAY CAMP

Ages 8-14

July 12-16, 2021

Monday-Friday, 9a-3p daily

True Cost $315, Scholarships Available

North Valley Music School and Ravenwood have teamed up to create this amazing camp!  Built on the routines of nature connection Ravenwood is known for, we’ll be infusing high level music instruction into our focused skill time each day.  Creativity will abound and the birds won’t be the only ones making songs out in the woods at Ravenwood this summer.

There are three music sections to choose from, each with a specific focus.  All sections will spend the first two hours and the last hour of the day together for group activities, games, songs, crafts, wilderness skills, stories, and nature connection time.  The middle of each day will be a breakout time for music creation and instruction for each section.

 

Sections include:

(beginners welcome in all sections)

Strings with Karen Pogorzelski–from Irish fiddle to classical to nature inspired improv, this group will explore a wide range of music and gain plenty of skills along the way!  All classical stringed instruments welcome. Campers should provide their own instruments. If you need help finding a string instrument please contact us

Percussion with Don Caverly–creativity abounds with the multi-faceted Don Caverly at the healm.  This group will romp through roots rhythms from around the world and drum to the beat of nature all week long! Percussion instruments provided.

Ukelele and Songwriting with Brett Holmquist–learning to listen is key to any musician’s journey. Naturalist mentor, Brett Holmquist, will help his young students expand their music and awareness skills and find their creative voice in song all week long! Campers should provide their own instruments. If you need help finding an ukelele please contact us.
