During Week 3, we will learning about music and its influence on many cultures. The subject of the week is Making Melodies but we will find that melody is just one part of music. At Camp Sonrise we have always used music as part of worship time each day. This week, music will be the central theme and we will look at music as a way to express ourselves. We will not be going on a field trip, but it will be coming to us as we experience African music with Crocodile River Music.
