Explore Music!

July 29 through August 2, 2024

Kids in the Lakes Area won’t want to miss this weeklong day camp packed with activities and creativity! Participants will move, dance, sing, and play instruments every day and exercise their creative muscles through guided improvisation. Our team of Teaching Artists bring their expertise in drumming, improvisation, theater, vocal studies, visual arts, and conducting to you and your explorers. In addition to this camp, LAMF will host a music exploration with a Sound Garden at the Northland Arboretum on Saturday, August 3. And LAMF's concert for kids will highlight much of the music they've explored throughout the week with a symphony performance Thrills & Superheroes at the Gichi-ziibi Center on Sunday, August 4.

For students entering grades 1 through 5.
