Aloha Ukulele Camp

Aloha! The ukulele has become one of the most popular instruments in recent years due to its joyful sound, portability, and ease in learning to play. In this camp, kids will learn several chords to be used to play along with recorded songs. They will also discover how the ukulele became the national instrument of Hawaii while learning to play some traditional Hawaiian tunes. By end of the week, they will have compiled their newly learned songs into their own special Aloha! Ukulele notebook to share with their family and friends. Campers are encouraged to bring their own ukulele, if available.
