We are surrounded by other musicians for the whole week, and we have access to many great musical professors and counselors...I look forward to Music Camp for months and count down the days until it begins!
I was encouraged to witness the incredible progress made by my students in one week of camp

As a parent, my mind was put at ease knowing that the girls were in the hands of exceptionally competent and caring instructors, leaders, and sponsors. We could not have been more pleased with their progress and experience after spending a week at Maranatha Band Camp.

You don’t spend all of your time with just drama, or string, or piano people. You get to branch out and broaden your horizons. Plus, the food is really great!
