The Simpson College Jazz Camp has been in existence since 2003 and is known for its excellence in Iowa jazz education. Directed by Dr. Dave Camwell, the Simpson College Jazz Combo camp provides an intensive experience for middle and high school students, ages 12 - 19, looking to gain skills and appreciation in jazz and improvisation. The faculty includes some of the most respected jazz educators in the United States. Students will have many opportunities to work on their craft, and be able to hear the faculty perform nightly. The final concert will take place at the fabulous NOCE Jazz Club in Des Moines.
