National Youth Music Camps

July - August 2019

The National Youth Music Camps  offer young people of all musical abilities the chance to come together and take part in an inspiring and varied week-long music and camping experience. 

Now in their 49th year, they are managed by The Stables Theatre in Milton Keynes, one of the UK’s leading music organisations.

This year’s Camps will be taking place at Piper’s Corner School in Great Kingshill near High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire.

2019 dates

  • Teenage Camp 1 (for ages 13-17 years): Sunday 28 July to Saturday 3 August

  • Teenage Camp 2 (for ages 13-17 years): Sunday 4 to Saturday 10 August

  • Junior Camp (for ages 8-12 years): Sunday 11 to Saturday 17 August

Campers can expect to try anything from orchestral playing to jazz improvisation, ukulele sessions and steel pan groups to music theatre production, choirs and rock bands. Everyone also works together to stage a musical as part of the end-of-week showcase for parents.

The Camps’ tutors are experienced musicians and teachers who are committed to inspiring and coaching the next generation of musicians. All campers and tutorial staff eat, sleep, practice and perform on site, creating a fun and vibrant camp atmosphere. All the camps activities take place in the school grounds and buildings, including the school’s 300-seat state-of-the-art theatre.

The combination of great facilities, inspiring tutors and the opportunity to camp and connect with the outdoors makes for a magical experience. It creates a stimulating environment for any young person interested in music, regardless of their playing standard. The only requirement is that you love music and are keen to develop your talent
