Does my child need prior experience to attend?
Jam Camp West is open to all youth ages 10-15 with or without prior experience. Classes are designed to meet the needs of both beginners as well as campers that have had limited or extensive prior musical experience.

Does my child need to bring an instrument to camp?
If your child wants to participate in an instrumental ensemble, they must come with their own instrument except for keyboards and drumsets. Please have your child bring a small amp if they play guitar or electric bass. If your child wants to take ukuele, please have them come with their own instrument if possible. However, we do have a limited amount of ukuleles available at camp for classes. We provide all percussion and steeldrum instruments and of course equipment for turntable classes.
