Camps
Founded in 1997 by Litchfield Performing Arts, the Litchfield Jazz Camp is a charitable organization dedicated to changing lives through music. Serving 70-150 residential and day students, the camp accepts all students age 12 years and older, from beginners to advanced musicians. Students are taught in skill-based combos and participate in jazz and theory/composition workshops, master classes, jam sessions, evening activities and concerts. Electives include introductory piano and drums classes, R&B Ensemble, Listening to Jazz, Big Band, Latin Jazz Ensemble and a college prep class led by Doug Munro, a professor of music and founder of the jazz program at SUNY Purchase.

Students can enroll for one or more sessions, which will be offered, June 30 – July 5, July 7 – 12, July 14 – 19, and July 21 – 26. Campers will have the opportunity to attend and perform at the annual Litchfield Jazz Festival, which will be held July 26-28, 2019 at the fairgrounds in Goshen, Connecticut.

Founded in 1850 by abolitionist, educator, and outdoorsman Frederick Gunn, The Gunnery is a coeducational college preparatory boarding and day school for students in grades 9 through 12/post-graduate. Dedicated teacher-mentor-coaches challenge students to reach their full potential in a home-like setting where character and citizenship are valued as much as intellect and achievement. Individualized attention and high expectations help young learners develop not only the skills and confidence they will need in college, but also the moral compass and love of learning that will serve them well in life. The school attracts ambitious, academically curious students who will both shine as unique individuals and thrive as contributing members of a deeply connected community. By the time they graduate, Gunnery students have become well rounded, grounded young adults with a sharpened sense of who they are and who they want to become.
