This event is open to all military surviving children and teens (kindergarten to 12th grade). Each child, regardless of age, must be accompanied the entire time by a parent or guardian. 

Join us for TAPS Drum Night at the TAPS Headquarters Office in Arlington, Virginia. We will come together as a local TAPS family to build custom-made drums and learn a few riffs together. The evening is sure to be a great time of connection, fun, laughter and loud noises. 

Good Grief Camp Kids and Military Mentors drumming

Drumming is known for its great benefits to our mental well-being, providing a place for us to exert some energy, focus our attention, and relieve some stress. Drumming allows us to release much needed endorphins throughout our body, making us feel better and lowering anxiety levels. Add to that, the support of some of our local military mentors, along with time with fellow TAPS families and friends, and that's a recipe for a fun night out!

All materials and drum supplies will be provided by TAPS. No food or beverage will be provided.

About TAPS Togethers

Community is important!  This is why we create a broad variety of opportunities to bring the TAPS family together.  TAPS Togethers are one-day, organized, social events across the country, led by TAPS Staff or a survivor like you, with the goal of expanding our peer support community. 

If there is not a TAPS Togethers event in your area, consider hosting one. You know your community best! Perhaps you know of a simple cost-effective way to bring TAPS families together for a day of hope and healing in your area. We would love to hear from you! Please submit your idea and we will connect with you to explore the possibilities.
