Kids Mountain Music Camp is a sponsored by The McCall Folklore Society & The Annual Summer Music Festival at Roseberry, along with many other amazing sponsors and grants. The goal of the camp is to expose budding musicians to traditional and non-traditional bluegrass or mountain music.
KMMC is a three day workshop in beautiful and historic Roseberry Idaho. The classrooms are scattered around the historic townsite to insure proper social distancing.
During the 3 days (10am-3:00pm) children ages 8-17 will learn basic music skills and history of American folk music with emphasis on Folk, Bluegrass, and Old Time music. Classes cover many instruments including fiddle, banjo, mandolin, guitar, hand drums, singing, and songwriting. At the end of classes, students are encouraged to participate in the camp concert at The Summer Music Festival at Roseberry on the Mainstage. This performance gives the students real life experience of performing for a live audience as well as giving them an attainable goal throughout camp.
To register, please fill out the Online Registration Form . A Parent or guardian must also fill out and return a printed Release Form, (Click Here to Download). Class sizes are limited and preferences are honored by registration arrival. Camp schedule, songbook, and other information will be given to the camper when they arrive at camp. Forms and payment are due by Saturday June 12th 2021.
Campers will have the opportunity to select a primary instrument track plus each Camper will be part of a band or group to practice and perform together. The registration form will allow you to select your Camper’s primary preference for an instrument to study during group sessions. We will make every effort to give each Camper his or her top choice, but some instrument tracks will have capacity limits.
Please spend a few moments on the Registration Form to tell us about your child’s musical ability and experience: How many years the camper has played the primary instrument, favorite songs, what songs currently working on, other capabilities, and goals for camp. Fill out the Registration Form in the “Additional Comments” section.
