Choose your week: classical, jazz, blues, Broadway, world music +++
Each week’s program is based on a different theme and offers a varied choice of classes, including chamber music, choral and instrumental workshops, early music ensembles, Broadway theatre, songwriting, yoga, classical & jazz vocal masterclasses, tai chi, visual arts workshops, forest bathing and much more.
You can sing in an acapella group, play in an orchestra or jazz combo, kayak, swim and relax by the lake, play tennis, take in (or perform in) a concert, learn to play the djembe, join an evening singalong by the campfire… the days are filled with opportunities to have fun and to make music with other musicians who share your passion. While at CAMMAC, you will learn from the best: our highly experienced teaching faculty is composed of outstanding professional musicians from Canada and abroad.
Families love CAMMAC for the great balance of time spent together and apart!
CAMMAC is an intergenerational music camp with classes and activities for all ages. Kids, teens, and adults participate in separate programs, allowing each member of the family to play, learn, relax, and grow according to their own rhythm.
The kids’ program, designed for children 5 to 11 years old, offers music, arts & crafts, dance, and sports. Activities are also planned for kids in the evening. 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).
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).
