Cazadero Music Camp
5000 Austin Creek Rd., Cazadero
Cazadero is a music camp in Sonoma County with a fairly rigorous program. The camp skews slightly older (it's for ten- to eighteen-year-olds) than others, and the core of each camp day is split between specialized small and large group instruction: orchestra, jazz ensemble, or concert band. There is still a bit of time, though, for nonmusical electives and activities, campfires, talent shows, and the like. And for budding musicians who also love nature, Cazadero is a double win: Campers sleep on tent decks under a starry sky among Sonoma's redwoods. Sessions range from one to two weeks.
