Summer Camp for NON-SLIA students

Summer Camp for NON-SLIA members

St. Louis Irish Arts is hosting an online summer camp via Zoom in June.

 

The camp will cater to tin whistle, fiddle, concertina, harp, banjo and flute players and will also offer singing and Irish language classes. Due to CLRG regulations, the dancing portion of the camp is confined to SLIA students only.

 

Every lunchtime we will have Irish language lessons followed by a guest performer to play/sing/dance and talk to the kids. We encourage everyone (parents too!) to watch these performances and to learn from some Irish music stars. Throughout camp we will also have some fun activities, games and daily themes to keep everyone entertained!
