The Lake Winni Overnight Music Camp is an overnight music and recreational camp for kids age 10-18 that takes place at the Geneva Point Center, a 200-acre private campground on Lake Winnipesaukee in Moultonborough, NH. The New Hampshire Independent School of Music is proud to offer this non-competitive Music Camp for young people.

This camp is structured for the beginner to advanced musician. Musical activities are conducted each day from 9am to 2pm. After 2pm, students are free to participate in recreational activities such as canoeing/kayaking, campfires, swimming, field games, and much more on beautiful Lake Winnipesaukee. All recreational activities are supervised by the camp Counselors. Counselors are young Adult musicians that have been through the camp program for many years and are well-versed with all aspects of the program.

Classes, Activities and Concerts

All students are broken up into various ensemble groups based on their musical tastes and experience. Ensembles include Baroque Orchestra, Jazz Band, Piano Duets, Funk/Fusion ensemble, Rock band, Punk band, various jam bands, Chamber Groups, String Orchestra, Vocal groups, Blues Band, Gypsy Jazz ensembles, Baroque Saxophone group, Wind Symphony, etc. There are also electives such as Improvisational Workshop, Beginner Drum Class, and Intensive Beginner Music Theory. Students can also elect to learn a new instrument such as voice, piano, violin, or guitar.

Classes are scheduled Monday through Friday, 9:00am to 2:00pm. There are four classes in the morning, lunch, and then a fifth class. Students then regroup at the cabins to go to the beach, play field games, hike, or participate in other recreational activities. Practice time is scheduled before dinner, and there is plenty of free time for students that just want to get together and rehearse or improvise. Each night there is a different group activity such as Open Mic Night, Movie Night, Night Hike.

The concert is on Saturday from 11:30am to 2:30pm with an intermission. Check-out is directly after this concert.

Rules on Visiting Alumni

Facilities

All facilities are run by Geneva Point Center. We simply rent the campground space from GPC. To get a better idea of the accommodations and the campground space and facilities, please visit Geneva Point Center's website. The Music Camp always uses the Barn, Siftar, Chapel and Pine Haven for music classes and concerts. Our cabins are at Geneva Woods and our meals are at the Inn. The map below also gives a great idea of the layout of the campus on Lake Winnipesaukee.

There are 6 cabins for students and 1 cabin for counselors. Three cabins to the left of the Counselor cabin are the girls cabins, with 8 bunks in a cabin; three cabins to the right of the Counselor cabin are the boys, with 8 bunks each. For the younger cabin (age 10-12), and Intern has a bunk. The cabins are very comfortable, but rustic. There is no air conditioning, but there are power outlets for fans which GPC supplies us with if it gets too hot. The location of the cabins in the Geneva Woods location makes it very cool in the evenings, there is also a shortcut trail to the main campus and a footpath to the lake. There is also a main Program lodge and bath houses located on our site. The Program lodge is a large screened in lodge where the students like to hang out and after hours. The bath houses have full showers with hot water. We also have out own fire pit for campfires.
