Last Chance Music Camp

Welcome to the Last Chance Music Camp website! This page is designed to be a resource for campers, donors, and other community members interested in supporting the summer music camp unique to Helena. We appreciate your support and feedback as our camp grows and evolves with each successful summer.

The Last Chance Orchestra Camp began in 2008 when a small group of dedicated string players joined together at C.R. Anderson Middle School to explore and perform music after the school year ended. Starting in 2016, the camp moved to Helena Middle School to accommodate band and choir students who were invited to join what orchestra had enjoyed for eight years. This camp has grown ten fold since its inception–the 2019 enrollment included over 110 students from the Helena area and beyond. These talented musicians rehearsed, studied, and performed all manner of music under the guidance of 20 local music instructors and 9 student counselors.

Staff is excited for Last Chance Music Camp 2020. It begins on June 15 at Helena Middle School, and our final concerts will be June 26. Registration information is finally available; if you have any questions, please use the contact page to email us at your convenience. We look forward to seeing you at camp!

Thank you to our generous camp sponsors!
