Summer Camps

During the two-week DMMC summer camps, students create music in a fun, collaborative environment with no prior experience required. We are proud to offer musical opportunities with a sliding scale / pay what you can admission. Working as a team under the guidance of seasoned local teaching artists, students learn skills needed to play in a band, write lyrics, record music, and perform live on stage at our annual 80/35 music festival.

2023 Summer Camps are set for June 19-29, and will return back to Ding Darling Shelter, thanks to our partners, Des Moines Parks and Recreation.
