Music Camps
The University of Oregon School of Music & Dance and Global Perspectives for Youth, LLC (GPY) organize bi-annual international music camps.  These camps occur during the winter and summer months.  Camp participants consist of students from among the top high schools in China.  At the camps, these students learn English, take music classes, and are involved in a variety of campus activities and fun excursions.  Students also share Chinese culture with youth from local middle and high schools, as well as music organizations.

GPY strives to contribute to the development of our community on many levels. The international camps are excellent channels to promote musical, educational and cultural exchange with new friends from across the globe.
