About Litchfield Jazz Camp

Founded in 1997, Litchfield Jazz Camp now serves 70-150 residential and day students each week for 1 to 4 week sessions on the campus of Canterbury School in New Milford, Connecticut. Run by Litchfield Performing Arts, a charitable organization dedicated to changing lives through music, the Camp's philosophy is simple. We start with a faculty of amazing and inspiring jazz musicians. To that we add eager music students in a non-competitive program. Litchfield Jazz Camp embraces all learners - students 12 years to adult, beginners, intermediate and advanced players, students with learning disabilities, and others. That is how the collaborative, supportive and fun atmosphere at Litchfield Jazz Camp is created. Find out for yourself!
