If your child has ever dreamed of performing their original music on stage or starring in their very own music video, check out our summer camps in June and July to turn that dream into a reality.
Two one week sessions in June and July.

Each summer, Community Music School hosts Celtic music camps for musicians of all ages. Our camps are staffed by teachers and teaching assistants (TAs) specializing in traditional folk music from the Celtic diaspora and beyond. Each camp ends with a concert open to family and friends.
Our Teen Camp is a week-long overnight camp that takes place every June at Monte Toyon in Aptos. This unique residential program places teenage musicians (ages 12-18) in a beautiful outdoor setting with great instructors. Teens learn to play Celtic folk music, but more importantly, they spend a week with other teen musicians in a supportive environment, and with a strong sense of community. Students practice and perform in instrument-specific groups, in small bands, and with the entire camp. Other activities include vocal training, Scottish dance, movie night, a barn dance, crafts, a talent show, and lots of jamming!
Our Kid Camp is a two-week day camp that starts in mid-July, and takes place at St. Philip’s Episcopal Church in Scotts Valley. Children learn to play Celtic folk music in a small and supportive environment. They also learn to make their own bamboo flute, and have plenty of play time! Students practice and perform in instrument-specific groups, and with the entire camp.
All of our camps are for players of fiddle, flute, penny whistle, recorder, clarinet, harp, autoharp, guitar, mandolin, dulcimer, accordion, keyboards, percussion, Irish tenor banjo, and cello. Campers should be proficient on one of these instruments, with a suggested minimum training time of two years.
CYT Musical Theater Day Camp
CYT Santa Cruz "Summer Cabaret" summer camps are a week-long musical theater day camp for students ages 4-18, and are offered July 5-9 in Scotts Valley and July 12-16 in Aptos. Camps are designed to create a hands-on theater experience, and are focused on building performance skills, self-confidence, and teamwork.
Our camps include rotations through drama, dance, and music, team activities like water day and a petting farm, a daily theme-related devotional, and an impressive concluding Cabaret Performance for an audience at our outdoor stage. There’s no better place for kids to learn about theater and have fun than in CYT’s positive and encouraging atmosphere - and every camper gets the opportunity to perform on stage!
