Join us for great music, new friendships, and lots of fun!
Summermusic 2021 is on!
July 19 – 30
Now, that is something to look forward to. In the midst of this second lockdown, kids and parents alike need some good news. We are excited to announce our new outline for the 2021 music day-camp. The health and safety of our campers and staff are of paramount importance to us, while maintaining an atmosphere of fun as we guide the children in exploring music together. It is so important that the children and youth in our community receive an education and means of expression through the arts, especially now. All the staff at Summermusic have been working hard behind the scenes to create a scenario where we can do just that.
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
Check out our Programs page for all the details!!
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
