Sound Scholars™ Otter Pod Summer Camp

Calling all Otters — we’re having an in-person summer camp!

About Sound Scholars™ Summer Camp:


Calling all Otters, Seals and Porpoises — we’re having summer camp! Taught by Mr. Matthew, Miss Jennifer, and Miss Heidi, we’ll spend a week learning songs for a musical that will be planned, written and directed by the Porpoises with a finale, live-streamed performance at the end of the week!

We’ll also practice literacy and counting skills, play a lot of games, and even have a snack and some outdoor time! Campers can also enroll for an additional enrichment period (1–4pm) which will include STEM and SEL focused listening and movement activities, arts and crafts, a snack, outdoor play time, and of course, more music! Campers who will be attending both camp and the afternoon enrichment sessions can bring a lunch or purchase one daily for $5.

Add-on Session:

Afternoon Enrichment 1–4pm


This optional add-on enrichment period (1-4pm) includes listening and movement activities, arts and crafts, outdoor play time, and of course, more music! You have the option to add-on this session when you sign-up.



Held daily, 9am – 1pm at Faith Lutheran Church in Shelton from August 22–26, Otters (ages 2–5), Seals (K & Grade 1) and Porpoises (Grades 2 & 3) will spend part of each day in separate pods, and part working together to learn their music and rehearse their own musical at this Sound Scholars™ summer camp.


Class requirements:

Campers should bring a water bottle (labeled clearly with their name) and wear shoes and clothing appropriate for the weather.


About Sound Scholars:

Great Bend Center for Music’s early childhood program, Sound Scholars™, provides music instruction in the internationally acclaimed El Sistema model. For an overview of the program, click here to learn more and to watch a short video with highlights from class, an introduction to teachers, and an interview with a Sound Scholars’ family.

Otter Pod (Pre-K/ Ages 2–5) students learn that they are already musicians; that they can already find and feel the beat, tell high from low, and fast from slow. Through games, exercises, songs, and yes — even composition assignments — learners come together to explore the primary elements of music making and notation while also discovering their own initial musical preferences and strengths.
