Testimonials of Past Participants and Parents (page 2)
"Mountains and Strings has helped me with more than just music and meeting new friends. It helped me understand how to truly be a good musician and a better human being. The staff knows you by your name and often they show how much they really care for the members and about music. The beautiful surroundings of Harriman State Park provide for a gorgeous practice hall and enhance the experience of a lifetime. Truly connecting with people and establishing real tangible friendships through music is what sets Mountains and Strings apart from any other music camp I've been to."

"I loved Mountains and Strings. I got so much better at playing my bass!"
Gabe Davis
Rexburg, Idaho

"I can honestly say that Mountains and Strings is the best retreat I have ever been to. None of the other camps I've been to have ever completely captured the balance between social and learning experience. My musical talent has improved since attending and also I've become more motivated to practice my instrument. I've made friends that I've kept in touch with since the first time I attended. I have even gone as far as annoying my friends in trying to persuade them to attend. These guys have got the high school summer retreat thing down right!"

"I had the most amazing experience at this camp. The staff was great and all of the activities were so much fun. I grew so much in just that week. Violin was just a casual thing to me, something I could do, but this camp lit me on fire and I am absolutely in love with it. I find my self getting lost in the music and I thank this camp for that."
Candice Egan

"I really enjoyed music camp. I had a great time, and made a bunch of new friends. I feel that I improved my skills greatly and had the wonderful opportunity to play in a quartet that was able to teach me a lot. I definitely plan on coming next year!" :)
Mary Orchard
Rexburg, Idaho

"This was definitely one of the greatest experiences of my life. I would more than happily go every year that they would let me. The things I learned and the experiences I had will stay incomparably with me for the rest of my life. This was very much worth every penny spent!!"
Mason King

"My son, Alexander, has attended music camps all over the country, but he enjoyed the clean, moral atmosphere of Mountains & Strings the most of all. Thanks for giving us a better choice. I am sending his siblings this summer. I have also recommended Mountains & Strings to my own students."
