cowboy & dog
Grab your lariats and saddle up for a week in the old west as cowboys and cowgirls! Learn cowboy favorites such as “Home on the Range,” “Buffalo Gals,” “Git Along, Little Doggies,” "I'm An Old Cowhand", "The Yellow Rose Of Texas", and “Skip to My Lou.” Strum along on the guitar and banjo, and blow some notes on harmonica just like a real cowboy! You’ll learn the histories of these songs, lingo and lore through tales of the Wild, Wild West. Make your own western costume, learn some square dance steps and participate in our version of a cattle drive!
Songs of The West is the 4th of 4 summer camps offer by The Shedd Institute as a part of its 2017 Summer SongFest program for kids. Read more...
Each morning begins with a “warm up”, followed by learning the songs for the week’s theme. They will then get to learn about and play an instrument that has to do with the week’s theme. After a snack the campers will either get a chance to make their very own instrument or get dance instruction based on the theme. The campers end the day with a song circle to prepare them for their performance on Friday:
