Arts and Music Summer Camp for Ages K – 5

Exploratory, inquiry-based art experiences that combine music, history, drama and dance.


A four-day (Monday-Thursday; 9am – 2pm) summer camp for grades kindergarten through 5th focused on the intersection between music and art. The camp curriculum will be inspired by the Lake Tahoe SummerFest (LTSF) concert series. Each day will combine creative time spent indoors and outdoors. Campers will create music, art, attend selected Lake Tahoe Summerfest rehearsals and interact with musicians.


• A collaboration between teachers and working artists who can teach studio habits of mind: creativity, perseverance & problem solving
• An opportunity for children to build an appreciation for classical music
• An interactive approach to teaching storytelling and understanding symphonic music


The Arts and Music Summer Camp will be co-taught by an elementary teacher and student interns of the Sierra Nevada College (SNC) Fine Arts and Music department.
