Blue Ridge Suzuki Camp offers a concentrated week of music study and recreation for Suzuki students and their families in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley region. Now in our 24th year, the camp has developed a reputation for its outstanding faculty, supportive learning environment, and beautiful location.  Most of our families and teachers return year after year- creating a strong community of students, parents, and teachers.

             Enrollment this year is open to violin, viola, cello and guitar students at all levels and ages, who have studied using the Suzuki approach. Students who are in the upper Suzuki books or beyond the Suzuki repertoire have the option of auditioning for our more focused Chamber Music Institute.  Siblings and parents of Suzuki students may participate in camp classes through our many elective offerings, including fiddle, celtic cello, improvisation, and beginning guitar.

     In addition to daily music classes, students are given the opportunity to perform on a solo recital and participate in evening activities and recreation.  Blue Ridge Suzuki Camp is held at Shrine Mont Camp and Conference Center, a beautiful and historic facility that includes a large outdoor pool, tennis courts, fishing pond, basketball court, miles of hiking and biking trails, and much open space to play and enjoy the outdoors.

      At Blue Ridge Suzuki Camp, students of all ages and levels are able to to further their skills and love of music in a fun and supportive atmosphere.  Parents have the opportunity to learn, share ideas, and to enjoy special time with their children and other families. The week together provides motivation, learning, and enjoyment for all.

June 19-24, 2022

COVID-19:  We held a successful in-person camp last year, with participants doing an  excellent job following health & safety protocols. While it is too early to say the exact covid protocols that will be in place for June 2022, we will certainly follow the most up-to-date State and CDC recommendations for camps and educational settings.  Proof of vaccination or a negative covid test will be required of all participants attending camp. We are fortunate that our location allows for many events to take place outside under open-air pavilions, and that we have many large indoor spaces. Finalized covid protocols will be posted May 1, but feel free to email with any questions.
