Camp Themes

It may seem far away, but summer is coming and so are my studio camps!  Running camps in the summer is one of my favorite things!  I love to see the kids get excited to be with friends and to work together to practice and learn musical concepts.  And since I am a big kid at heart...

I recently came across a website that had loads of camp ideas and included a list of 100 Summer Camp Themes.  A great list!  So if you're thinking about having a camp or camps and need some ideas, this is a great place to start.  The site also has some other camp ideas which might trigger some creative ideas! 

If you've never done a camp, you should consider it.  It's a lot of work, but it's well worth it!  I'm planning on running 3 camps this year - 2 camps that I've done in the past and a new one I'm working on right now.  I'll be sure to share more on this as it gets closer to summer!  In the meantime, I hope you're own planning goes well and that you'll check back and share what you're doing!

Hey Sheryl:
I'm curious, how big are your camps? And how many adults do you get involved? Where do you run them? And what are the liablity issues involved? I just started teaching this year and am considering the possibility of running a camp,, but I'm not sure how logistically possible it would be for a small number of campers. Any thoughts you have on running camps would be welcome. Thanks!
