China Institute’s new “Percussion and Play” program is an interactive music class designed for younger learners and their caregivers. Participants will experience the colorful world of Chinese percussion instruments through stories, demonstrations and the playing of drums and cymbals, while being immersed in a Chinese-language environment.
Based on the ‘Mommy and Me’ model of early childhood music education, the program will emphasize the fundamentals of rhythm and melody as well as introducing simple musical notation. Children and accompanying adults will enjoy exploring a combination of traditional Chinese folk tales, Chinese language, and percussion. No musical experience or knowledge of Chinese is needed.

At Deer Mountain Day Camp, your child will become an unforgettable part of our story. Our story began in 1956, when the Katz family founded the camp. Since then, we have all been committed to the same goal: to help every camper enhance their positive qualities and embrace who they are – as each becomes a unique and essential part of our community.
Roberta & Carol Katz, Deer Mountain’s deeply involved camp directors, personally get to know campers and families from the outset. Multiple layers of staff communication invite you to share in your child’s experience, every step of the way.
We offer campers ages 3-15 a sleep-away camp’s range of activities, facilities, and staff, each program crafted to meet their ages and developmental levels, in a day camp setting. Taught by experts we scout out, these activities give your child a chance to try and learn new things, excel at some, and always have a blast. Activity areas include Swimming, Sports, Fine Arts, Performing Arts, Outdoor Adventure, Nature, STEM, Lake, Special Events & Electives.
