Ages 5-13 (Please note that due to the intensive nature of our camps, we are unable to accommodate 4-year-olds)
This week will feature Latin America’s rich culture of music, song, and dance with returning teacher-artist Andrés Cisneros who is a specialist in Cuban and Afro-Latino rhythms and traditional Latin American music. By assigning each camper a Keys animal of their choice, Andrés will guide them through the week in the process of instrument making and character building by creating a musical play based on Caribbean folktales. On the way, camp friends will have fun with the Spanish language through games, stories, and art. The goal of this workshop is to introduce students to Latin American Folklore through music composition and performance.

The bags will be kept in a designated storage area to which the children will have access. It is important that all items be labelled with your child’s name. Snacks will be provided, however, the children will require a packed lunch. Pizza will be provided on the field trip unless otherwise noted.
