Join us for great music, new friendships, and lots of fun!
Summermusic 2021 is on!
July 19 – 30
We know many of you have been waiting to register your child for music camp because of all the uncertainly surrounding us. You probably joined all of us at Summermusic in breathing a tremendous sigh of relief when the Ontario government announced on May 16th that day-camps would be allowed to reopen this summer. We were encouraged further by the release of the Roadmap to Reopen Ontario plan on May 20th. Day-camps will be permitted to open in Step 1 of the Roadmap and by the start date of our camp (July 19), Ontario will be firmly in Step 2. Such exciting news for parents, children and Summermusic staff! For this reason, Summermusic is extending our Early Bird deadline to June 14th to give everyone extra time to take advantage of our reduced fees. Please note that our final date for registration will be June 25th.
We are very fortunate to have the facilities of the Deep River Community Church as our new venue for 2021, where we can;
- divide our full-day campers by age into two cohorts, each with its own building
- have no more than 30 campers per cohort
- have staff rotating between buildings (with appropriate health protocols) so all campers receive the full benefit of our excellent instructors
- have enough space to easily implement safety protocols
- maintain social-distancing in our beginner classes by reducing the selection of instruments
- make use of church grounds for outdoor music instruction as well as recreation
- continue to offer Music for the Young with slightly shortened sessions to avoid overlap with the full-day campers

At Deep River Summermusic, we provide a wonderful music and day-camp experience for young musicians aged 5 to 18, from beginners to advanced.
Our campers have the time of their lives, making friends and learning in a challenging, supportive environment. Campers tell us they learn more in two weeks than they did all year!
Being immersed in music all day, it’s impossible not to soak it all in and achieve more than you thought possible.
“Summermusic was an integral part of every summer break for me. It was a great chance to expand our musical knowledge, have a ton of fun, goof around with old and new friends, and after years, became a sort of reunion for repeat campers…. I still get teary-eyed and excited when I hear songs we used to perform, and hope that my daughter is as lucky to attend in a few years!”
-Margot, camper 1997-2000
The Summermusic staff is made up of highly trained, experienced professional musicians and educators, who come to Deep River from all around Ontario and the rest of Canada, bringing enormous enthusiasm for teaching young musicians.
“My son was reluctant to attend, however after the first day he couldn’t stop talking about what they were doing at camp.”
-Parent of Sean, 2017 camper
“Thank you to all the staff who made this such a fantastic experience for our daughter. From meeting a new best friend, to being able to express her love for singing, to discovering an interest for playing an instrument, Summermusic was a wonderful fit for her this summer”
-Parents of Paige, 2019 camper
Participants from outside the Deep River area are always welcome. We can help arrange carpools or billets. Contact us for more information.
“Summermusic was a real help for our three boys to decide which instrument would fit best.”
-Parent of David, Dominic, and Ezra, campers 2006-2013
