Plugged In’s Music That Matters Summer Day Camp is for kids ages 11-18 and includes band class, songwriting, recording a song for a CD, music video, workshops, offsite events, and performance opportunities. Each session ends with a benefit concert that raises money for a charitable organization chosen by the students themselves. Plugged In provides a nurturing and supportive community to which young musicians feel a sense of belonging, an opportunity to express and be acknowledged for their musical interests and a chance to use their music to help others around the world.
Music That Matters Summer Day Camp meets Monday through Friday from 9:00-3:00 in two 2-week sessions from July 11th – 22nd and from July 25th – August 5th. Extended day is available. For more information, please visit http://www.pluggedinband.org/programs/summer-program/.
Founded in 2002, Plugged In now has over 160 students from all over Massachusetts. Some of our students experience emotional and learning difficulties, such as ADD, depression, and low-self-esteem and/or have special needs such as autism and Asperger’s Syndrome. In the loving and non-competitive atmosphere at Plugged In, all differences are transcended through a shared passion for music, the teamwork involved with using music to help others and an atmosphere of compassion and fun.
