The camp will feature board-certified music therapists and will help teach special needs children social skills and build self-confidence.

The camp will run for two hours a day for a week, before a final performance on the last day.

Campers will also get a free t-shirt and a take home instrument bag.

“The community that we’re serving, the special needs community, has already had so much taken away from them, along with us, but we really wanted to make sure that we could provide them this year to add a little bit more normalacy back to their summer,” said Patricia Allison, owner of Milestones and Music.

The four camps will be held at the following times and locations:

  • Ages 7-11: Stepping Stones, Morgantown, June 28 – July 2, 4:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.
  • Ages 7-11: Gallery 62 West, Grafton, July 12 – 16, 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
