    BandWorks

    Rock out this summer with BandWorks! Musicians ages 8-18 will have fun playing music with other kids or teens, and develop their music and teamwork skills at the same time. Students get to experience the thrill of being in a real rock band, playing songs together on the first day, and working toward a rocking in-studio performance on the last day of camp. All of our sessions are led by top professional musician-instructors who create a fun and supportive environment while teaching students the skills they need to play in a band – and make new friends in the process! Ages 8–18.

  • Project Ember

    At Project Ember, we build big. We teach kids how to use professional power tools, announce a surprise design challenge, and unleash our imaginations in our design sessions. Then we build it, test it, improve it, play with it, ride on it and show it off. Though every week is unique, one thing is guaranteed: kids will always be able to get in, climb on or operate creations of their very own design.
