2019 Summer Arts Camp

 The Music Foundation of SW Florida aims to enrich and transform the lives of young people by igniting and nurturing the life-long joy of making music. We are so proud of our Summer Arts Camps and are in our 26th year of offering them . Thank you to everyone who has ever attended and to the donors who have made this possible. 

Our vision of what is possible from studying music and other forms of art includes:

improved self-discipline -persistence to reach a goal - learning to work with others- learning more about history and literature (life enrichment) - improve cognitive thinking
