Cazadero Music Camp provides a nurturing, inspirational environment for young musicians ages 10-18.
For more than 60 years, Cazadero has offered a dynamic program that strikes a thoughtful balance between in-depth music education and carefree summer camp fun. Cazadero is set on 33 acres near the Russian River in Sonoma County where young musicians learn together under a canopy of spectacular redwood trees.
We have 5 camp sessions that are arranged progressively in age (5th – 12th grade) and ability. Musical offerings include Orchestra, Concert Band, Jazz Ensemble, Piano, and Guitar. Each week renowned conductors from all over California and the world arrive to work with our campers, giving them an experience of a lifetime. Campers will also have a choice of musical and non-musical electives that may include jazz improvisation, mariachi, chamber music, art & crafts, nature, sports, and more! With no cell phone service, there is minimal access to electronic media.
Make Caz part of your summer in 2022!
