Group Drumming Programs for Summer Camps
Are you looking for an outstanding and unique special event program for your campers?
Do you want your campers to have so much fun that they want to return to camp summer after summer?
Would you enjoy having an easy to do, interactive, and educational music making activity in camp that your campers will love participating in?
In 2012 camps are feeling the pressure from parents to have music programs in camp. Maybe you have tried to incorporate music into your programming, and it was unsuccessful because you did not have an experienced professional running it. Or, maybe you already have a music program in place, but it needs a serious dose of energy and inspiration.
The answer to having an outstanding music making experience for your camp is simple…
Path To Rhythm Group Drumming Programs offer the perfect solution for having a music activity in camp. We will bring drums and percussion instruments for all of your participants and enable them to create in the moment music together as a group. Each program includes an introduction to drumming technique, a movement activity, an ice breaker rhythm game, a call & echo activity, a group drum jam, and a beat box demonstration that teaches participants how to express rhythm. Our programs consist of age appropriate activities. We have experience facilitating all age groups, from the youngest campers to the oldest seniors and CIT’s. We work with the themes of unity and camp spirit in our programs.
- Drumming is a low impact, yet physical, activity. After drumming, campers will feel inspired, confident, and empowered.
- Our programs create unity among the participants, and the sound of the drums creates an excitement that can be felt all over camp. After drumming together, campers and staff will feel a sense of connection.
- Drumming is an organic, fundamental, and intrinsic activity that offers a refresher in a typical camp schedule.
The benefits to Camp Directors and Owners
- Campers love it and the staff does too. Happy campers translate to higher enrollment and retention rates.
- Camp owners will have peace of mind, in knowing that they have an experienced professional like Adam running a program.
- Having a music activity fulfills the expectations from parents to have educational activities for their children in camp.
- Camp directors are able to leverage all of these benefits and utilize them in their marketing and advertising.
Because we bring all of the drums, you save on the cost of having to purchase your own drums. We save you both the time and money that it would take to hire someone new or train a staff person in-house to run an activity like this.
More and more camps are bringing Path To Rhythm Group Drumming Programs to their campers. In the summer of 2012 Path To Rhythm worked with some of the most respected camps in the Tri-State area and drummed with over 4000 campers and staff. Just ask other camp directors, and chances are that they have heard about Path To Rhythm.

It was so refreshing to see them experience ‘real’ music and drumming in such raw, live state. Thank you again for bringing your talent, energy and creativity to Camp Wayne!”
-Adena Brown, Director, Camp Wayne for Girls
“I would like to send a big thanks and a huge hug to Adam. The Path to Rhythm experience at Liberty Lake Day camp was awesome. To see so many of our campers (young and old) embrace drumming, music, and the idea of creating something together was great! Adam’s enthusiasm and love for drumming transferred to all of our campers and the lucky staff that had the chance to participate. This awesome experience culminated in an explosion of energy and music at Camp-a-Palooza and made the festival not only interactive, but memorable for all who watched Path to Rhythm in action! Thanks so much to Adam for sharing his time and talent with all of us at Liberty Lake!”
-Brandi Carnivale, Program Director, Liberty Lake Day Camp
Frequently Asked Questions:
What size groups do you work with?
We work with groups of 25-40 participants per session. The benefit of working with this sized group is that campers receive individual attention during a program, and therefore the experience is memorable for each participant. We are able to accommodate smaller or larger sized groups depending on your camp’s needs and the way that you chose to schedule your groups and divisions of campers.
How long is a program, what is the duration?
Most sessions are 35-45 minutes. From our experience, this tends to be the the most effective length of time for scheduling purposes. Many options are available for program durations. We want to collaborate with you to provide the best program for your needs.
What do you require? How much space is needed?
We require a space large enough to accommodate all participants, and chairs for each participant. Drumming is suitable for an indoor or outdoor experience (rain or shine!)
Path To Rhythm will unite your campers and create camp spirit to help make 2013 the best summer ever.
