Learn, Explore & Grow

Our mission is to bring the love of music and learning to youth.

For over 60 years, Cazadero Music Camp (Caz) has provided a rare opportunity for youth from a broad range of backgrounds and music abilities to come together and immerse themselves in a rich music curriculum.

Full Camp Facilities

Our rustic campsite—owned by the City of Berkeley—is situated in a redwood forest in Western Sonoma County, where campers enjoy rehearsing, sleeping and playing outdoors.

Guest Conductors

Our large ensembles have a new conductor every week—each introducing a challenging, interesting and diverse repertoire.

Growth & Education

Caz programs offer a nurturing, inspirational environment for young musicians ages 10-18 from the Bay Area and beyond.

Play in the Redwoods

Caz offers a dynamic sleep-away camp program that strikes a thoughtful balance between in-depth music education and carefree summer camp fun.

Scholarships Available

Our scholarship program helps hundreds of young musicians with financial need take part in our program each year.

97% of campers report that their playing improved at Caz, and 100% of parents would recommend Caz to a friend.

Caz Campers Share a Special Bond

Become a Better Musician

Cazadero Music Camp offers a music curriculum designed to help students advance their musical skill.

Individual mentoring combined with several hours a day of group instruction helps students fine-tune their playing ability. Our unique Caz curriculum produces exceptional results for students year in and year out.

Musicians participate in Orchestra, Concert Band or Jazz Ensemble. Led by a new guest conductor each week, campers rehearse twice, two to three times a day for 60-90 minutes preparing for their final performance. While some initially doubt they’ll be able to master the repertoire, students discover they are capable of rising to the challenge!
