Welcome to Camp Coletrain, an annual music camp produced by Coletrain Music Academy! 

Camp Coletrain is truly an immersive experience that offers the perfect amount of music, wellness, community, and adventure. Our workshops are tailored to intermediate to advanced performing musicians looking to gain more knowledge on their applied instruments. We also offer a Strings & Song Youth Workshop for beginner-advanced students 12 and under. Our music camp instructors are both experienced educators and avid performers who have helped countless students reach their musical goals. At Camp Coletrain we start each morning with an outdoor yoga session where we will set our intentions for the day and work on the areas of our body specific to our instruments. If yoga isn't your thing we encourage you to walk the river and explore the incredible trails Buena Vista has to offer. We also carve out time for students to explore our downtown cafes, food trucks, and shops. Each evening you'll have the option to attend a free concert spotlighting teachers, students, and local musicians. Our goal is for students to discover their musical spark at Camp Coletrain, that they walk away with more knowledge, confidence, and clarity around their instrument, and find themselves more relaxed after having spent some meaningful time in the mountains making epic memories that are certain to last a lifetime.

Camp Coletrain will take place in Buena Vista, Colorado, June 24-28 2024 and also includes daily yoga, evening performances, a welcome tote + camp t-shirt, classroom snacks, and will close with a student ensemble performance at River Runners. This year's camp will wrap up with a family-friendly float immediately following the student performance. *Interested students will receive a link to sign up for our private boat trip at a discounted rate.
