About Camp

Where is Camp?

Since the inaugural camp in 2009, and for the past 8 years we’ve had the opportunity to host our camp out of the Urban Native Youth Association. A very special thanks to the Urban Native Youth Association for the contribution to an accessible and safe space for camp to thrive in.

What Camp Week Looks Like!

Camp runs for one week during the summer, Monday to Friday 9:00 am to 4:30 pm, with a final showcase on Saturday at a local music venue.

Campers participate in instrument instruction, workshops, and band practice where they collaborate with their band an write and original song. No musical experience is necessary! Campers of all skill levels choose their instrument of either guitar, bass, keyboards, drums, or vocals.  All gear is provided!

All types of musical preference is encouraged, from rock, punk, hip-hop, country, pop, indie, lounge, blues, reggae, jazz, ska, metal, experimental, hard core, R & B, screamo, alternative, classic, etc., and sometimes new genres even get made up during camp!

Throughout the week campers participate in workshops such as:

  • Song Writing
  • Screen Printing
  • Zine Making
  • Self-Defence
  • Positive Self-Image & Identity Discussions
  • Gear Set-Up, Technical Training and more!
