The class schedules are now posted on the “schedules” page.

Registration is now available online, and we still have some places left, so come join the jam!

Explore music “from the inside out.”

Discover the joy of jamming, improvisation, singing, dancing and playing tunes together. Try different instruments, learn new tunes and styles on your main one, have fun doing creative art projects, learn about the local native American culture, or just enjoy the woods. There’s something for everyone at Camp Kiya!

“Kiya” (Kee-ya) means fun, laughter and play in the local Tehachapi native language, Nuwa (or Kawaiisu). The camp is rustic, with a mess hall for meals and dancing, a campfire circle for gathering and singing, and cabins, campsites and shower facilities. Sleep in a cabin, your own tent or RV, or go home every night if you are local. We also have fine hotels in town only 20 minutes from camp. Meals are mostly catered from our local restaurants, with vegetarian options.

Our Acorn Program includes special activities for children ages 4 to 11 who are not taking the regular classes. Those 6 and under must be accompanied in the program by a parent or guardian.
