Music That Matters Summer Camp

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

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.
