Violin/Piano/Music & Media Technology
Creating an exceptional music lesson experience is one of the most complex and challenging forms of education. Musical skill involves the most sophisticated muscle training to hit the right notes (technique), complex aural (listening) training to develop a “good ear”, a detailed understanding of the concepts, symbols and style of music (sometimes called “music theory”) and much more. All this must be accomplished while maintaining and developing the student’s love of music, setting inspiring goals, and gaining confidence as a performer.

Outside Cooking/Gardening
Outdoor cooking differs substantially from kitchen-based cooking, the most obvious difference being lack of an easily defined kitchen area. As a result, PAK Summer Campers will have developed a significant body of techniques and specialized equipment for preparing food in outdoors environments. Such techniques have traditionally been associated with nomadic cultures such as the Berbers of North Africa, the Arab Beduins, the Plains Indians and pioneers of North America, and have been carried down to and refined in modern times for use during recreational outdoors pursuits.
Currently, much of the work of maintaining and developing outdoor cooking traditions in Westernized countries is done by the Scouting movement and by wilderness educators such as the National Outdoor Leadership School and Outward Bound, as well as by writers and cooks closely associated with the outdoors community.
Days of Week: Once in June & July
Ages: 5-12
Cost: (Paid by Pride Academy)
