Join us for a week filled with fun activities and classes suitable for all ages and levels of amateur musicians!
Throughout the week, we will explore the concept of the musical menagerie in our classes and activities. From animal-themed choral works to the creation of origami animals, insects, and birds, our furred, feathered, and scaled friends will take center stage.
Program highlights include choral singing, origami and Japanese culture, percussion, dance, guitar, chamber music, tai chi, and outdoor activities. Joint activities for adults, teens, and kids will include lively group games, a treasure hunt, a sushi-making workshop, origami and Japanese culture workshops, movies, a cabaret evening, a campfire sing-along, and much more.
🎵 New classes for 2024: ukulele, recording techniques, and songwriting.

The CAMMAC Music Centre:
unique in Canada
CAMMAC embodies a vision that aligns with our aspirations for a vibrant and inclusive society in Canada, with core values revolving around fostering personal growth, a sense of belonging, and healthy, fulfilling lives for all, and this in a bilingual context that encourages integration between cultures.
The concerts, music programs, and retreats offered at the CAMMAC Music Centre provide uniquely enriching experiences for amateur musicians and music lovers, surrounded by the beauty of nature. By cultivating inclusive musical experiences that transcend barriers of age, language, and culture, our activities exemplify “participative culture”, as described by Simon Brault, CEO of the Canada Council in La Culture avec un grand C.
CAMMAC plays an important role in supporting music in Canada
CAMMAC occupies a vital position within Canada’s music ecosystem. Over the years, CAMMAC has nurtured the talents of many of Canada’s most celebrated, including Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Daniel Taylor, Timothy Hutchins, and Gregory Charles, among others. In addition, participants in CAMMAC’s activities are highly representative of the target audience for professional classical music concerts – the very individuals who enable classical music to thrive in today’s world.
Composed and arranged by Mélodie Rabatel in response to the pandemic, the song celebrates the many aspects of attending programs at the CAMMAC Music Centre that bring us so much joy.
With the help of Kevin O’Neil and the collaboration of many members, teachers and friends, Mélodie put together this virtual choir project that we hope will bring to mind great memories of your own time at CAMMAC, as well as inspire many more people to come spend some time with us in the future.
Hymne de CAMMAC is a heartfelt tribute to everything that makes the CAMMAC Music Centre such an extraordinary place, much loved by so many musicians, amateur and professionals alike.
In addition to the Music Centre in the Laurentians, CAMMAC is present in the regions of Montreal, Ottawa-Gatineau, and Toronto, where a multitude of musical activities are on offer – concerts, sight readings and many more activities to please music lovers of every type and level.
