State Junior and Senior Music Camps

Years 5 to 12

Residential camps celebrate all forms of music making and provide unique extension experiences for students studying music.

High potential and gifted music students join together each year to receive expert tutelage and develop their music performance skills. During the week students rehearse and perform a range of engaging and high quality repertoire culminating in a concert for families on the final night of the camp.
