For younger enthusiasts, the O’Flaherty Irish Music Youth Camp offers many of the opportunities found at our extended retreat that are tuned to fit the needs and interests based on our participants’ ages.
Open to participants from ages 6 to 17, the Youth Camp holds two days of events during the Summer break from school. The schedule includes instrument classes, instructor concerts, instrument demonstrations, and student participation in sessions, performance, games and more.
The traditional Irish instruments we focus on include fiddle, guitar, harp, piano, bodhran, flute/whistle and mandolin/banjo/bouzouki. We also present introductions to Irish singing and to Irish social dance.
In addition to the annual camp, we hold Youth Sessions throughout the year for youth to participate in traditional Irish music.
