Litchfield Jazz Camp is thrilled to announce its new home at Canterbury School, New Milford, CT. The campus is minutes from downtown New Milford with its cafes, shops and restaurants. The village, with charm aplenty, has served as the backdrop for a number feature films.
Canterbury is 1 hour and 45 minutes from NYC. Air travel is available through LaGuardia and Bradley International Airports.
Students live in single-gender dorms. Adults and younger students are housed separately. Resident assistants are on duty every night and supervise student activities during the day. Fees include three meals daily for residential and day students. Combo rooms have keyboards and drum kits AND air conditioning, as does the dining hall and the auditorium. Additional practice rooms with pianos are available.
Players are asked to bring their own instruments; if this is not logistically possible, instrument rental can be arranged. Guitar and bass players must bring their own amplifiers. Students may register in advance for one private lesson a week for an additional fee.
The new Jazz & Fitness program launches at the Jazz Camp this summer. Students can sign up for running, swimming, soccer, an early morning “boot camp,” yoga and more.
A physician is on call, and the school has a relationship with a nearby hospital. A nurse is on call 24/7 and resides at Camp. Camp staff are CPR certified. The Litchfield Jazz Camp holds a license from the Connecticut State Department of Public Health, Department of Youth Camps.
