A 3 day Crossing Songwriters Camp for Yr 8-11 students will be held on Monday 14 to Wednesday 16th December in the last week of Term 4. Professional musicians will be on hand at The Crossing Camp to guide participants in developing ‘my place’ songs about where they live.
The Crossing Songwriters Camp provides a music extension opportunity for young people to express their thoughts and feelings about the South East region.
In partnership with the Yuin Folk Club and other arts organisations The Crossing offers this 3 day camp at a reduced fee of $150. Included are all meals, accommodation and instruction at The Crossing Land Education Trust near Bermagui.
There are 24 places and bookings can be made at http://thecrossing.thebegavalley.org.au/events/songwriters-camp-yr-8-11/
Crossing Songwriters Camp participants will also have the opportunity to perform on the Youth Crossing Stage at the 2016 Cobargo Folk Festival on 27th and 28th February. 2016 will be the 11th year of the Youth Crossing Stage.
