Summer Music Camp Pictures 

CAMP B:


Counselors for Camp B:  Benjamin & Gracie
Both counselors grew up in the Jingle Jamboree Music Summer Camps, Music Club and Music Classes.  One day I complimented Benjamin for the great job he was doing as a counselor and he said:  "When I was in the camp it was a great experience for me, so I want to do everything I can so the boys and girls will have the same experience that I did."  AND that is what makes a great counselor for the camps.

Wait! These kids aren't in Summer Camp!!  These are some of my music students at Ocean View who we ran into at the park.  The Camp A children chose Ocean View Park to walk to for lunch.
