Canterbury School - New Milford, CT

Litchfield Jazz Camp is thrilled to announce its new home at Canterbury School, New Milford, CT. The campus is minutes from downtown New Milford with its cafes, shops and restaurants. The village, with charm aplenty, has served as the backdrop for a number feature films.

Canterbury is 1 hour and 45 minutes from NYC. Air travel is available through LaGuardia and Bradley International Airports.

Students live in single-gender dorms, with roommates of a similar age. Resident assistants are on duty every night and supervise student activities during the day. Fees include three meals daily for residential and day students. Combo rooms have keyboards and drum kits AND air conditioning, as does the dining hall and the auditorium. Additional practice rooms with pianos are available.

Players are asked to bring their own instruments; if this is not logistically possible, instrument rental can be arranged. Guitar and bass players are encouraged to bring their own amplifiers. Drummers should bring sticks and cymbals but do not need to bring a full kit. Students may register in advance for up to two private lessons a week for an additional fee.

The Jazz & Fitness program allows students to sign up for running, swimming, soccer, an early morning "boot camp," yoga and more.

A physician is on call, and the school has a relationship with a nearby hospital. A nurse is on call 24/7 and resides at Camp. Camp staff are CPR certified. The Litchfield Jazz Camp holds a license from the Connecticut State Department of Public Health, Department of Youth Camps.
