Joyous and rigorous music immersion
in a nurturing, non-competitive environment

Kinhaven is …

Kinhaven is a unique residential summer music camp in the rolling green hills of Weston, Vermont. Classical chamber music in a collaborative, non-competitive environment is at the heart of our programs for children and adults.

The spirit of Kinhaven inspires plenty of spontaneous music making, singing, and chamber music reading sessions. The afternoons lend themselves nicely to many non-musical activities, but also are perfect additional practice hours for those that wish a more intense experience. New friends, expert instructors who care, great home-cooked food, beautiful countryside all around you, and an atmosphere of genuine sharing and support.

Kinhaven is on a 31-acre campus and has unlimited offerings, musical and recreational. Vermont in the summer is irresistible; Kinhaven offers glorious opportunities in music-making and even more importantly, friendships.
