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 McCall Idaho. The classrooms are in Ponderosa State Park on the McCall Outdoor Science School campus overlooking beautiful Payette lake.
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 mandolin, guitar, fiddle, banjo, bass, drums (new this year), and vocals.
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 will be the opening act for the entire festival and gives the students real life experience of performing for a live audience.

Campers will be taking a different instrument class during each Block for a total of three instrument classes, plus a band class.

We will make every effort to give each student his or her top choice for the camp.
Please spend a few moments on the Registration Form to tell us about musical ability: How many years the camper has played, favorite songs, what songs currently working on, other capabilities, and goals for camp. Fill this out in the “Additional Comments” section.
