What is the 2020 Garrett Park Summer Music Camp?
Garrett Park Summer Music Camp is a week-long summer camp where kids ages 6 to 17 can learn to play music in a band together, and then perform those songs at a rock show on Friday night with lights, sound, & the awesome energy of a live audience (that's you, parents!). 

What is the weekly itinerary like?
Throughout the week, campers will get individual instruction on their instrument, group classes on live performance, group band practice time, contests, and more!  Additionally, campers will watch a live performance from a touring band with a private Q&A after the performance. (see who is scheduled to perform at camp).  On Friday, campers will run through their show and prepare their final performance.  On Friday night, students will perform the songs they have been learning all week at a real venue and share the spotlight with their fellow campers.
