WISTA SUMMER ORCHESTRA CAMP

Send your 4th - 6th Grade students to WISTA Camp!

For over 25 years, we have provided one of the only summer string camps in the state for students in grades 4-6. We take pride in combining high quality music instruction with traditional summer camp activities. Endorsed by the Wisconsin chapter of the American String Teachers Association, (WiASTA) our program blends instruction in violin, viola, cello, and string bass with with traditional summer camp activities such as boating, swimming, and nature walks. We offer our camp sessions at the beautiful Camp Whitcomb-Mason in Hartland, WI.
