CAMMAC is an intergenerational music camp with classes and activities for all ages. Adults can attend workshops and classes while kids take part in their own program. The program, designed for children 5 to 11 years old, offers music, arts & crafts, dance and sports. All children must be accompanied by an adult who will be responsible for their supervision outside program hours (8:30 AM to 1:00 PM). Activities are also planned for kids in the evening.
Teens get to choose from classes in our adult programs, as well as from activities and workshops designed just for them such as teen choir, arts & crafts and Broadway workshops (singing/acting/dancing).
