Creekside Fiddle Camps.

Every summer since 2007, fiddlers, guitarists and other musicians gather in Lithia Park for music and fun. Musicians learn songs by ear, play games, perform as a group and share tunes from around the world.

Jump Start Fiddle Camps

Jump Start Fiddle Camp is the camp designed for younger fiddlers, ages 5-9 or K-4th grade.

It is for kids who have never played the violin and for kids that are going strong in Level 3 or higher.

Jump Start camps will take place during the same weeks as the Creekside Fiddle Camps -- June 24-28 and July 8-12. Plus, an additional date: July 22-26.

Students are welcome to attend more than 1 camp.


Camp Details

Creekside Fiddle Camp or Jump Start Camp?

Jump Start Fiddle Camp is ideal for children ages 5-9 -- from complete beginners through the end of Level 4 of FiddleQuest. 

Jumpstart is designed to be a nurturing environment with activities centered around music through singing, dancing, games, story time, splashing around in Lithia Creek and small group fiddle instruction.

We are making a shift towards separating the 2 camps by age and grade, rather than level. In the past, very young players who happened to be advanced in their playing would be part of the Creekside Fiddle Camp. But we realize that the children, even though they have fast fingers, are still in such a magical world and the Jump Start camp is perfect for them. 

Here's a quick guide if you are wondering which camp is right for your child. (The grade refers to the grade your student will be in the Fall of 2024.)

Of course, we don't want to 'demote' any of our fiddlers that went to the Creekside Fiddle Camp last year or have been anticipating going to the 'big kid' camp even though they might be young enough for Jump Start camp. We'll handle those case-by-case and use flexibility and wisdom to ensure your child has a great week of music.
