What is BCMC?

Bel Canto Music Camp is a day camp for young musicians aged 6-15 in central Hamilton, founded in 2003. It's a great opportunity to learn new music over the holidays and have fun participating in all kinds of activities. No previous musical experience is necessary to join into the fun! We'll teach you to play violin or guitar, with two daily music lessons. Campers with experience on an instrument can choose to participate on their instrument instead. Every day at BCMC is a guaranteed blast! Campers participate many activities, including: indoor and outdoor games, arts and crafts, sports, comedy skits, drama activities, two weekly swim afternoons at Westmount Rec Centre, movies, and more!
