JAM: Camp

JAM Camp

What is it?

JAM camp is when JAMs get together for a weekend of dancing during the school holidays. In addition to classes, outings and evening dances, it is also an opportunity for JAMs to take the medal tests for which they have been preparing during the year.

It is open to all JAMs aged 7 to 19, but those under 16 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

The date of the camp can vary each year as it is dependent on the availability of accommodation.

What you think

Edward(Waimate): “Great to meet old friends and make new ones. It was great to have so many young dancers in one place, especially teenagers. I really enjoyed the bumper cars and bowling too.”
Emelia (Milford): “I really loved the friendly atmosphere at the lessons, even if you messed up it was fun. The people teaching and helping out were amazing, and I loved meeting JAMs from other areas of the country who I would never have met otherwise.”
Emily (Waikanae): “My favourite dance was Petronella because it is super tiring and I got to dance with my friends. It made the JAM Camp 10x as much fun. I also really enjoyed the ball because there were lots of interesting purple and green clothing.”
Jennifer (Little Thistles): “I enjoyed dancing De’il Amang the Tailors with no hands, because it was something different. I made new friends and got to know some of my old friends better. Outside of class my friends and I had lots of fun talking and playing games.”
