Join us this summer at the Winspear Centre as we sing, laugh, play, and learn an instrument from scratch. The Winspear Centre is proud to bring back our popular Sensational Strings Summer Camps. You’ll get group instruction time, individual attention, and support from our qualified teachers.

In addition to playing instruments, you’ll also make crafts, play lots of games, and showcase what you’ve learned at the end of week in a special sharing concert!

Parent feedback from last year's summer camp:

"My daughter loves the camp and loves music. It is a high-quality camp where I know she will learn and have fun."


"Thank you to everyone. I really appreciate this opportunity. Kids need to be more involved with instruments and music. I was really impressed with the result. Everyday my child would come back with not only music, but the whole world of music. Love it."


"We thought it was planned out very thoughtfully and thoroughly to conform with all the recommendations/regulations from AHS/Public Health.There were many precautions taken, but our child still had fun, and we felt comfortable sending him to camp everyday."
