Music director, Arthur Thompson, is a professional musician who devotes much of his personal time to incorporating music into the lives of children whose lives have been challenged by parental incarceration. His creative program, Drums Speak©, allows children the time and freedom needed to spark creativity while having tons of fun. Besides playing drums and percussion instruments, campers also make their own instrument to take home after camp.

Music is a great equalizer. It ignores socio-economic backgrounds, learning disabilities, physical, mental and emotional handicaps. It enables people to feel good about themselves and the world around them. It gives them permission to have fun.
