Musical & fun experiences for
Band, Choir, or Orchestra Students

Lake Samish Music Camp is an incredible opportunity for your music student to participate in an inclusive, rigorous, and fun summer camp experience.

Our focus is on improving each camper's skills as musicians and performers in an inspiring environment.

Now in it's eighth year, this is a full camp where students participate in small & large ensembles (including a symphony orchestra!), and have individual instruction on their primary instrument by highly qualifed instructors. In addition, the camp experience is unmatched in the Northwest with all the unique activities that Lake Samish has to offer.

Successful experiences in music

There are many opportunities for your student to learn not only on their primary instrument but also try a new instrument, play in a new type of ensemble, and receive instruction by knowledgeable teachers.

Music staff will be made up by teachers who exemplify a passion for music, teaching students and creating successful experiences. They are some of the finest music teachers, performers and/or college music majors available. Joe Dyvig, orchestra teacher in the Olympia School District, serves as camp director.
