MISSION: In the interest of connection, bridging divides, and putting more love in the world through music, CB&S! seeks to honor and nurture the creativity of every participant, regardless of previous skill, ability, or talent. Everyone is encouraged to make instruments, create songs, and sing/vocalize daily. Participants should plan to attend the entire session, as our work each week will be cumulative, culminating in a group concert.

Camp includes:

  • Singing (learning songs, group singing, and vocal technique)
  • Body percussion (fundamentals of rhythm)
  • Songwriting (creating, editing, rewriting, refining, rehearsing)
  • Performing (learn how to be comfortable on stage)
  • Improvisation (making it up as you go)
  • Homemade instrument making (from found, recyclable, and craft objects)
  • Ensemble playing (duos, trios, full band)
  • Games (music and rhythm games, plus more)
  • Swimming (M-Th, weather permitting!)
