Bluegrass Camps for Kids

Bluegrass Camps for Kids will be hosting a camp in Seward and Homer this year!

Bluegrass Camps for Kids is a one of a kind experience for your child to be exposed to bluegrass, old-time, and folk music. It is a well rounded camp including instrument instruction (beginning through advanced guitar, bass, fiddle, mandolin, banjo), to dance, singing, jamming, songwriting, and performing. Children gain a love for traditional music that will last them their entire lifetime.

Through an advanced registration form, children pick from a wide range of classes; all levels of guitar, bass, banjo, fiddle, songwriting, jamming, dance, and vocals are offered. Campers are also involved in a band class with their peers, daily jams, square dances, open mics, art projects, optional private lessons, and games, as well as an end of camp concert for their friends and family. Campers do not need to have any previous instruction, as Bluegrass Camps for Kids teaches beginners up to advanced levels. Bluegrass Camps for Kids is also supported by a camp songbook that includes many traditional bluegrass and folk songs, written music, chord sheets, recommendations for practicing and additional resources to encourage further study.
