Music Camps

We have partnered with the UC Davis Department of Music to bring three new camps to life this year – Listening to Art, Painting Music (C), Music Through Playing: A Music Composition Camp (C), and Young Composers Workshop (high school level). Space is limited, and they will fill fast!

Vet Med Application

Yes, Vet Med Camp is BACK! Due to overwhelming response to the new program, we have implemented an online application process this year. We want to hear from potential campers, so parents: please supervise and provide minimal assistance. Application open Feb 4-17. Families will be notified the last week of February regarding application status (accepted, waitlisted, or denied). Campers will only be accepted or waitlisted for one session.
