Music: Drumming has been proven to have the ability to produce feelings of well being and help release emotional trauma. Our drumming workshops utilize “junk percussion,” things that you can find around the house or around your neighborhood; garbage cans, empty coffee cans, water jugs, pots, shakers and drumsticks/beaters. The campers are taught how to drum along to different songs and make music together in unison. This ends up being a very powerful experience because our kids learn that music is something you can create anywhere at no cost.
This class allows the campers to literally march to the beat of their own drum. Our campers leave this rotation feeling closer to themselves, less stressed and more like a team after getting lost in the music together.
