We are Delivering!

2024 will be our 3rd summer offering Pre-Intermediate. It has been blast. Hope to see you there! :)   


An Elementary/ Intermediate crossover perfect for those who want the Arrowbear experience, but are not quite ready to be away from home for our 2 week Intermediate. 


Musical work will be determined based on enrollment size and instrumentation- chamber orchestra, small/mixed instrument ensembles, etc. Campers should expect to rehearse 4 hours a day plus any additional time they choose to devote to individual practice. 


From Sunday through Wednesday afternoon this session will share the camp facilities with our Elementary Session. During these 1st 4 days, portions of the schedule will combine both sessions in a shared space (for example meals and free time between activities). Most of the daily activities will be separate from the younger Elementary campers and will be designed with age specific activities. Sleeping area will be divided by session. 

General Camp Information:

Other than rehearsal, all camp and dorm activities are supervised by a live-in staff of college-aged counselors at a ratio of 1 to 10. Our counselors are trained to recognize and be sensitive to homesickness and other social situations, as well as assist in creating friendships. They provide supervision, entertainment, friendship, guidance, musical coaching, and much more.


In addition to counselors, we have an on campus adult staff consisting of 7-15 people who assist in supervision.


Objectives for all Arrowbear sessions include:

-Preparing an impressive final concert that involves the whole camp.

-Ending the session with all camp participants knowing, respecting, and supporting each other.


Our methods to reach these goals incorporate:

-An age appropriate session structure.

-Filling our non-musical time with interactive group experiences to help widespread bonding of campers.

-Intercepting ridicule.

-Activities designed to build acceptance and affectionate regard where no one is left out.  

-Supporting the entire camp session becoming friends.

-Encouraging stewardship of our natural surroundings.

2024 Music Staff line up coming soon!
