OHSWEKEN – Music for the Spirit Summer Day Camp is about to begin. Registration for the popular summer camp is already full, but a waiting list is being collected in case of any no-shows.

The music camp is free to the public and will give campers the basics of a number of instruments and promises to have you playing by the end of camp, according to Father Ron Casey who is hosting the event again this year at 1631 Chiefswood Road, Ohsweken.

“Giving kids something positive to do is very important, especially in the summer when kids sometimes get bored and start getting into trouble,” says Casey. “Music is a great outlet.”

Music for the Spirit began from the desire of members of the Six Nations of the Grand River Anglican Parish to use the creative arts to give opportunities for young people to express their identity and learn musical skills.

“Through group music learning, singing and playing we nurture the young person’s self-esteem and self-image, acceptance for self and others, and build a sense of respect for each community member,” says Casey.

The camp will run in two segments beginning at the Six Nations Community Hall, July 2nd and 3rd and again from July 6-10, and is geared for youth 9-14 years of age. Instruments and free lunches will be provided.

“Through group music learning, singing and playing we nurture the young person’s self-esteem and self-image, acceptance for self and others, and build a sense of respect for each community member,” says Casey.

Support for the music camp has grown to include the Dreamcatcher Fund, the Six Nations Community Fund, the Anglican Healing Foundation, and the Eastern Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada.

Camp will run from 9:30 am to 3 pm Monday to Friday. Music for the Spirit is a community project of the Six Nations Anglican Parish. For more information you may send us an email through our Contact Us form or call  519-445-2661.
