West Coast Amateur Musicians Society (WCAMS) Fund

West Coast Amateur Musicians Society is a non-profit organization of amateur singers and instrumentalists, based in British Columbia, Canada. The society runs an annual summer music holiday in the Lower Mainland for adults, youth and families. Each year we welcome amateur musicians of all ages and abilities to enjoy a week of music instruction led by top-notch professional musicians, free concerts and many music-making opportunities with fellow music-lovers in a supportive atmosphere.

Part of our mandate is to ensure that the camp is open to all those who wish to attend. We offer scholarships to promising young people studying music who would enhance the musical balance of the camp, and bursaries to those of any age who may face financial barriers to attend.

The West Coast Amateur Musicians Society (WCAMS) Fund has been established to provide permanent funding for scholarships and bursaries so that all interested amateur musicians are able to participate in the WCAMS summer music holiday. In 2015, we embarked upon a five-year fundraising campaign to raise $200,000 for this Endowment Fund. All donations will be held in perpetuity to help send a child, youth, adult or senior to music camp. The WCAMS web site outlines the goals and details the progress of the WCAMS For Everyone Endowment Campaign.
