We envision Jam Camp as a catalyst that fosters creative self-expression and forges lasting relationships, building communities through collaboration in the Arts.


To create affordable musical experiences that inspire people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds to collaborate with other musicians, dancers, song writers and professional artists.

Jam Camp is a musical adventure for families of all ages and musical experience! For 3-5 days, Jam Campers camp with our multinational crew of facilitators, and explore music that celebrates life, nature, and cultural diversity. From African drumming to classical violin, Jam Camp encourages families to use their instruments to jam with other musicians and to create new, original songs. Come join the fun!

Jam Camp is about creating community through music. Jam Campers learn music from around the world, learn to sing and play instruments, and get the opportunity to engage musically with other people. Jam Camp is hosted by Jam Camp Society, a registered non-profit organization. Camps are held primarily in the interior of British Columbia.

Jam Camp has received generous support from:

The British Columbia Arts Council

The Canada Council for the Arts

Discovery Organics

Monashee Arts Council
