Wish List for Summer Music Camps

The kids need your help! The budding rock stars and hip hop emcees of the DMMC Summer Music Camps have been stealing the show for two years now and due to the growth of the program, we need help securing instruments for this summer’s camp and for our new after school program in the fall!

The kids organized a Wish List (below) of everything they need to rock out and drop the beat this summer. We’re collecting new or gently used instruments and donations to help make their rock star dreams come true! Please review the list below and contact us if you’d like to make an instrument donation. Click here to learn more about this summer’s Rock & Roll and Hip Hop Camp and register the rock stars in your life!

If you don’t have instruments to donate, please consider donating funds to help purchase new instruments for this year’s camps!
