MISSION STATEMENT

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, our mission is to provide scholarships to young people from elementary school age through college age so that they may participate in the educational experience of attending a summer music camp in the specific areas of instrumental and/or vocal music. Our mission includes the intention to promote the study and enjoyment of music and the arts, to encourage discipline and aesthetics in education, to provide opportunities for young people to share their art at a high level of excellence, and to meet with and explore ideas with other young people of various backgrounds, but similar interests. Secondarily, our mission is to promote the musical arts in performance and to give local communities an opportunity to view today’s youth in a positive and constructive light.

 
OUR BOARD

Our Board of Directors volunteer their time and talents to ensure we can provide music scholarships and to keep alumni informed about what is going on at Arrowbear. 

WHAT WE DO

We solicit donations from donors who are interested in supporting music education and grant scholarships to young musicians to attend any accredited instrumental or choral music camp in the United States.  

We publish a newsletter twice a year as an alumni group of Arrowbear Music Camp.
