The Academy of Musical Performance or AMP, which is headquartered in downtown Indio on Miles Avenue will be hosting two musical summer day camps for the youth of the Coachella Valley!
AMP Summer Camp is an intensive contemporary music performance day camp for Coachella Valley youth from 6th—12th grade. For three weeks, musicians create, communicate, and collaborate on original and cover music in bands, culminating in a Final Showcase. AMP Camp 2021 will be located in Palm Desert this year, and runs from July 12 - July 30, with a Final Showcase on Saturday, July 31. Camp days run Monday - Friday from 10 a.m. to 5.p.m., and accepted students are expected to attend all days of camp. AMP also provides lunch daily. Registration is currently open until May 19 and AMP is accepting audition videos now! Visit ampcv.org/summer-camp for more information.
preAMP is AMP's group day camp program for kids in 5th grade and younger, introducing them to the joys of playing on an instrument that is easy for anyone to pick up — the ukulele! Kids will have fun learning to play the ukulele and singing together in a group with the guidance of AMP’s enthusiastic music teachers. Open to youth with any level of musical experience, and the camp is $30. Visit ampcv.org/preAMP for more information.
