A Kindermusik summer camp is full of activities that are designed to nurture your child's natural curiosity, one that eventually draws her towards learning new words, new numbers, and new big ideas. In each class, we will sing, dance, play instruments, read stories, and have a wonderful time!

SUMMER SESSION: JUNE 13-July 31st
Last year, most of our students needed to move dates and asked us to pro-rate for summer vacations, so this year we set up all the Kindermusik classes as single events. There is a one time $20 registration fee for the summer, this will give you 2 sets of downloadable materials, and each 45 min class is $10. You can register for individual dates in the online system.
In addition to the "Kindermusik" class times, all of the the Afternoon Sessions on Tues and Wed include a full Kindermusik class for students ages 3-4, 4-5, and 5-7. The afternoon sessions include music, art, and science class for $25 per class.
We will also be starting out the summer with a one-week camp for the little ones.
Please view our "Schedule at a Glance" for class times.

SUMMER SESSION: UP IN THE AIR and DOWN ON THE GROUND
Wiggle and Grow is a music-filled class that celebrates the unique joys of the growing child. It features a mix of activities for parents and children that includes singing, dancing, and exploring and playing instruments. Children will get to practice their active listening, turn-taking, and social skills, as well as develop their gross- and fine-motor skills. Parents and caregivers will also get tips and ideas for using music throughout the week, taking the learning and fun home.
Up in the Sky
Ready for a flight of fancy? It’s time to explore all of the floating, flying, fluttering things we can find Up in the Sky. We’ll use our imaginations to fly kites, stretch like clouds, and dance like stars. We’ll hop and fly with a flock of robins, soar with a wise old owl, and see the silver moon boat sail across the sky. Fire up your imagination, because we mean it when we say…the sky’s the limit!
DOWN ON THE GROUND: Look down and get grounded! In this unit, we explore the world of creatures found at our feet. We'll engage a child's natural curiosity as we hop like bunnies, crawl like caterpillars, and move high and low like squirrels. We'll hear and imitate crickets chirping and dogs barking, perform a familiar spider fingerplay, and have fun with nonsense words too. Through songs, listening activities, and vocal and instrument play we'll deepen the sense of wonder that children have about the world.
DIGITAL HOME MATERIALS: This unit include DIGITAL HOME MATERIALS. Students will receive downloadable music, books, and activities to do at home with their child.
For preschoolers and students who will be entering K for fall.
NOTE: This class is listed on the schedule as ages 3-5. 3s are welcome in the class, however it works best for a little bit older students ages 3 and a half or more. It is a drop off class without the parent. If your child has not yet turned 3 they may not enroll in this class even if they will be 3 for fall. If you have a young 3 please consider the Wiggle and Grow class above for parent and child together.
For students K - 2nd- this class is included in our Afternoon Sessions.
June: Jazz Kitchen
What’s cookin? Step into our Jazz Kitchen and you’ll find out! With a bowl full of movement and generous servings of vocal play and improvisation, you’ll be well on your way to a jazzy good time.
Nothing is better than small children with big senses of humor. Word play, tongue twisters, and silly songs are great for our bellies (belly laughs, that is), and great for cognition and vocabulary development, too! We draw on the rich tradition of humorous folk songs and explore folk instruments as we sing, play, and laugh together in Giggles.
