Registration open for ukulele camp

Langley long known as hotbed of producing ukulele players and it all starts at Langley Ukulele Association camp

Langley is known for cultivating the best ukulele players in Canada. And it all starts with Uke Camp.

This year, the Langley Ukulele Association is putting on their eighth annual ukulele camp at H.D. Stafford School. The camp runs Aug. 18 to 22 from  9 a.m. to noon each day.

In one short week, kids aged eight to 11 learn to play the ukulele in a fun environment lead by Paul Luongo and his team of teachers.

Experience is not necessary.

The cost of the camp costs $75 and registration includes a T-shirt, snack, and music book.  If students do not have access to their own ukulele, the association is selling them for $25.

Learning ukulele in this environment is like no other. It’s fun, entertaining, and you can’t help but notice the progress kids make during the week.

The camp caps off at 7 p.m. on Friday night, when the students and teachers perform for friends and family. And more often than not, that’s the moment the kids get hooked on the instrument.

The students are divided up by age and experience level. The association is looking to extend invitations to attending students to join our after school ukulele honour program, home to the world renown Langley Ukulele Ensemble.
