Not only is camp happening virtually this year, but we are spreading it out over two weeks! If your family is anything like our families are, we’re feeling a mix of the struggle to accomplish things at home while we’re all crowded together, combined with the need for new things to do! New Song is tackling both these problems for you at the end of July!
Week one will consist of videos that you will be linked to. You will be able to access these at any time during the week. The videos will include how-to videos for making your own instruments to prepare to play along with therapists and other campers, videos introducing our therapists for the year, music videos for you to play along with and get you excited about camp, and a special video challenge for each camper to help us to virtually put on our end-of-camp showcase. We couldn’t call camp a success without that! Look for a link to order your supplies ahead of time to make your instruments at home when you register for camp!
Week two will consist of a morning and afternoon session each day. These will be life with your camp group leader and a music therapist, and of course your fellow campers! There will be time to chat with friends during these sessions as well as make music. But the time requirement won’t be quite as intensive and you’ll definitely have a chance to rest and eat lunch in between. We won’t even yell at you this year if you decide to eat peanut butter with your meal!
We hope you’ll join us this year for a very different, but very special camp experience. We can’t wait to see you all!
Here’s a snapshot of what camp will look like this year…
