Summer Strings Camp
July 2018

This summer, we are offering several string camp options for individuals of all abilities who enjoy playing instruments and making music. Each participant may choose to play violin, viola, cello, or bass and will receive instructions on how to obtain an instrument before camp begins.

We are offering three camps: a camp for beginners, a fiddle camp for intermediate and advanced players, and a camp for advanced string players. Campers may attend more than one camp session; students who attend schools other than SHCS are invited to attend! The first camp is called “Stars and Strings,” ​a camp for beginners, where we will learn fundamental skills and play beginner melodies and songs from Disney movies. Another camp option is called “Fiddle Camp.”​ One year of experience is required for this camp, which will help to provide the foundational skills needed to play countless fiddle and bluegrass tunes. For more advanced players, the next camp is called “The Strings Soundtrack,” ​open to any children ages 9 and up who have at least two years of playing experience and would like to play more challenging, yet well-known songs from movies, top 100 classics and love songs, etc.
Approval from Ms. Kimbro is required.

Healthy snacks will be provided daily, and materials will be provided to all participants in each camp on the first
day. Each day, campers need to bring his or her instrument and any materials they receive throughout camp. For more information and to access the permission slip, click here.
