Camp Jam Programs Overview
Campers come to Camp Jam from all over the United States and abroad with one thing in common, they LOVE music. No matter what style of music they are interested in they come to Camp Jam to play and interact with other musicians their own age.
To qualify for Camp Jam's teen program, campers must be 11 to 17 years of age and have at least 6 months of experience on their instrument (guitar, bass, drums or keyboards), vocalists are not required to have any previous experience.
When campers arrive they are placed in bands according to their age, experience level and favorite music/bands. After bands are formed they are asked to choose a cover song as their concert performance piece or they may choose to write an original.
The day camp program consists of band rehearsals, live stage performances, songwriting, recording and special workshops. There is also surprise master class with a professional artist or band as part of the day program curriculum. The week culminates with a live concert on Friday at 6 pm for family and friends. All campers are required to bring a non-perishable lunch.
The overnight program intensifies the experience with an extended curriculum. Overnight campers form side project bands, storyboard and star in a music video. show their talent in an open mic night performance, record a video soundtrack and participate in open jam sessions. The week culminates with a live concert on Friday night at 6 pm for family and friends.
The extended day program enables campers to attend the full Overnight program without the overnight stay. Extended day campers must bring a bag lunch but dinner is provided Monday - Friday. A great program for locals.
Camp Jam hires only the best music professionals. All staff go through an extensive background check and are vetted and trained. Camp Jam is proud to have a high rate of return staff every year who excel at presenting a fun, exciting and educational program in a safe environment.
