Camp Granada

Each summer, the lives of children across the country are changed through the powerful impact of summer camps. However, while sports camps abound in great numbers, there are few summer camp opportunities for children interested in music. Camp Granada began from a desire to fill that void, and to offer the same kind of life-changing, character-building summer camp experience to young musicians that is more commonly offered in other areas.
