Summer Sessions | West Suburban YMCA

YMCA Center for the Creative Arts

Summer Sessions

The best summer music camp in Boston is at the West Suburban YMCA in Newton!

Want to write and record your own songs?

Summer Sesssions is a one-of-a-kind collaborative summer music program for teens!.

Like no other program in the area, Summer Sessions focuses on the process, not just the content. Our Music & Creative Arts staff mentor young musicians throughout the whole process from putting the band together to recording original music right here at the Y.  

Summer Sessions molds young musicians into experienced, successful collaborators while fostering individual abilities and a work ethic that is not exclusive to the music industry, but can be applied to so many other careers and educational experiences.

Participants will build and improve upon the creative skills of songwriting, filming, audio engineering, video editing, production, and instrumental or vocal performance while creating a complete, professional project featured on Spotify!
