Summer Camps

We offer two week-long performance bootcamps in July – one for teens and one for kids. Each bootcamp is five fun, intensive half-days and each pair of them culminates in a weekend performance, optionally performing with a live band!
 

Instructors

Both camps are run by Justin and Emma.   Justin is the primary instructor for the teen camps, and Emma is the primary instructor for the kids’ camps.  Learn about Justin and Emma on their teacher pages.
 

Cost

Camps are $285/week.  Showcase performances are free for track artists, $35/song for guitar or piano accompaniment, and $85/song for full band accompaniment.
 

How to Register

Click on the “Register Now” link below or at the bottom of the page.  You don’t need to pay for showcase performances at this time; we will discuss what kind of accompaniment is best for your child or teen.  Contact Adrienne at info@performancehigh.net or 303-819-0595 if you have any questions before registering.
 
Get ready to have fun!
