This summer, Stern Grove Festival also presents Kids Camps In Residence in partnership with the San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department Hamilton Recreation Center and the Boys & Girls Club of San Francisco Excelsior Clubhouse. The camps are only open to children registered at the summer programs at these locations.
Local teaching artists will provide instruction to participants, taking a hands-on journey exploring the role of rhythm and drumming in three different musical genres.
From 12:00 - 1:30 p.m. before every Sunday concert (excluding The Big Picnic), kids of all ages participate in hands-on arts projects exploring "The Art of Nature" at KidStage in the West Meadow.
Each week at KidStage, teaching artists lead a workshop on making art with nature, an instrument exploration station, and a dance workshop.
Informative pre-concert Artist Talks with featured Festival artists take place at the Grove’s Trocadero Clubhouse on select concert Sundays. Artist Talks begin at 12:00 noon, unless otherwise announced.
