Jedi Journey Summer Camp is a 4 day (8 hour) camp that celebrates music. A key component is the delightful theme of the Star Wars series. This camp injects an element of fun and imagination into the world of music study. Students come to camp anticipating the unexpected and the “galaxy far away.” Jedi Camp seeks to provide that “other world” yet educational aspect to summer camp.
Campers work together throughout the day to delve into numerous musical styles, skills and games. The creative activities focus on the development of technique fundamental to the success of assigned camp pieces. Through “Jedi” adventures, Jedi Journey Music Campers strengthen rhythmic skills, listening skills, rudiments of theory and music history. Games played at camp reinforce not only musical knowledge and skill but promote a strong sense of teamwork and camaraderie.
Of course, no summer camp should be without imagination. It’s what makes Jedi Camp a success.
This packet (150 pages) includes a daily schedule with theme ideas, detailed instructions for making props and supplies and links to resources as needed. In addition, there are suggestions for various “Jedi” activities that can occur during camp or be prepped ahead of time to help prepare for a truly engaging music camp. Suggestions of games and activities for students of all ages are included with easy to follow step-by-step instructions.
The camp targets students ages 6-14 (beginner through intermediate levels) but can be configured to accommodate students of all ages and abilities.
