Vendor Specialty Camps: (Kindergarten - Grade 6)

This summer, Indian Creek’s Eagle Adventures Program is pleased to announce that we have partnered with a number of local vendors in order to provide the enriching and exciting
experiences within the walls of our beloved building. Eagle Adventures has strived to make sure that families have the opportunity to choose between a well-balanced program that incorporates camps run by not only ICS faculty, family, and other local educational professionals, but also by partnering with local businesses. At Indian Creek, we believe that establishing a strong relationship with our surrounding community helps to support our program’s philosophy. We also believe that it allows us to showcase the amazing talent of our community members while providing a safe and convenient space for your children to participate.

The campers’ experience will be culminated with a live concert performance at the end of the week.

Our students will:
• Learn the nuts and bolts of live performance
• Rehearse as a band with rock n roll instruments in a studio

• Perform LIVE for family and friends at the end of the week
• Have fun playing real music

Students and instructors will work together to choose roughly 8 to 10 songs they want to play during the week. The instructors will work to ensure the songs are appropriate for their skill level so the students can be successful and feel confident on stage at the end of the week. If you have your own guitar or bass we encourage you to bring it with you otherwise we have instruments on site for student use. We teach guitar, bass, drums, keyboard and vocals. Students are encouraged to bring a lunch, a notebook and earplugs.
