Arrowbear Music Camp Intermediate Sessions


For Junior honor group level players entering 6th, 7th, and 8th grade (and higher). Two weeks of music and fun creating an exciting total experience. Non-music time is overseen by counselors (1 per 10 campers) sensitive to homesickness and other social situations, including assisting in creating friendships.


The repertoire consists of music typical for junior honor groups. We combine a busy routine of rehearsal, instruction and camp activity with a carefully planned social structure. Campers will also be introduced to chamber music through work in smaller ensembles. This results in impressive growth, both musically and personally. Dorms and camp activities are supervised by a staff of College age counselors at a ratio of 1 to 10.
