World of Drumming

Playing drums is an exciting way to explore the cultures around us. Campers will play rhythms from different parts of the world on bucket drums, tubanos, congas, bongos, cymbals, gogo bells, and more while learning about and gaining an appreciation of many cultures. Communication, listening skills, cooperation, leadership, and creativity are all affected by drumming. From drum circles to drum sets, it will be a blast!
