” Musiciens du monde ” Summer Camp

July 2-13, 2018

Discovering New Worlds

Introduction to the camp

The Camp des musiciens du monde is a new summer activity for 6 to 12 year-old kids in Montreal! It is a unique opportunity to experience music, songs, dances and games from different cultures of the world, all in one place!

Each day spent at the Camp des musiciens du monde is an occasion to meet musicians and try new instruments. During this musical journey, children will discover rhythms and traditional chants from places as diverse as West Africa, South America, Europe, Asia and Québec.

The Camp des musiciens du monde is a playful experience to make children learn from each one’s differences. It is also a unique step-by-step adventure where kids will develop musical sense and its essential ingredients: joy, good humor, fun, and cooperation!

After two weeks of immersion in the diversity of musical cultures, the camp will end with a show celebrating sounds and colours from the world.
