Music Mania Camp

MUSIC IS A UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE.

August 2nd - August 6th, 2 pm - 5 pm

Members: $115

Non-members: $145

Did you ever think that pool noodles, exercise balls, rain gutters, and parachutes could make music? Well, they can! These common objects will become musical instruments during Music Mania camp. Campers should expect to be very active as we combine cardio fitness with exciting music from around the world. Music ignites all areas of child development and skills, including intellectual, social-emotional, motor, language, and overall literacy.  Get ready to Shake, Rattle, and Roll your way to a great time!

Ages 4-8.

Due to limited capacity because of COVID-19, please email our Operations Coordinator Dara Kahkonen at dkahkonen@playwilmington.org to with questions or to register for a camp(s) or combination of camps, we have all day camp options available.

ABOUT THE EDUCATOR

Miss Dara

Dara Kahkonen is all about music. Coming from a very musical family in the Pittsburgh area with a father who performed jazz all over town, a mother that was a dancer in a folk-dance troupe, and in which all of her four siblings played more than one instrument, music was her origin story. Dara’s collegiate studies in music education at Ithaca College gave her an intimate knowledge of music theory, style, and performance. While in college, she became the director of the instrumental music program at All Saints Academy in Corning, NY, which thrived under her enthusiastic leadership. This led her to teaching private piano, flute, and trumpet lessons at a prestigious Music Academy in New York City. She is the owner of Music Bird Studios in Wilmington, North Carolina and the Operations Coordinator at The Children's Museum of Wilmington.

Fun fact: Miss Dara is learning to rock climb.

Favorite food: Miss Dara's favorite food is fresh pineapple.
