Welcome to our music family...
Today both orchestras and choirs are disappearing from the public schools, and the prospect of music in children's lives and education has become dismal. With state government & school districts cutting funding for the arts, and private lessons becoming more costly, the need for supplemental music became greater.
Sierra Mountain Music Camp began as an effort to boost school music programs and provide a unique experience in a beautiful environment, with dedicated directors and staff. Our founders, Gus and Peggy Noland, made a spiritual commitment to organize a summertime choral camp and from the beginning, Gus' dream has been to inspire young men, as well as young women to sing. As the camp has grown, programs such as the orchestras and the symphony have been added to support the increased demand from campers, parents, and the community.
For the past few decades music programs have been taken out or drastically cut from school programs. In order to still provide musical opportunities to children, Sierra Mountain Music Camp in conjunction with the RDLA "Adopt a Camper" program has been enriching lives through musical excellence, fun and community. Over the past 26 years the camp has grown offering boys and girls choirs, as well as an orchestra for stringed instruments and percussion. It's donations like yours that continue our mission of music education and fun in our community.
As our enrollment has grown, so have our scholarships. SMMC offers more than half of the enrolled campers each year partial to full scholarships, and the "Adopt a camper" program has only helped that grow. It is our dream to give children 4th grade through college an opportunity to learn through music, experience nature without distractions, and make lasting friendships. In order to continue the legacy, SMMC needs donors like you to help offer scholarships to children from all backgrounds without limitations. We never want to turn down a camper who has a desire to learn through music. Every amount is accepted and 100% will go towards camper tuition. Thank you for being a part of a life changing opportunity for child.
