Hymn Contest 2015

Shenandoah Christian Music Camp is pleased to announce its fifth annual Hymn Contest. Our winners last year were Kyle Lehman and Lyndon Gehman, who provided the text and music, respectively, for the new hymn, “O King of Endless Universe.” We again invite amateur poets and composers to participate in a contest to write a new hymn text and tune. We welcome contestants outside of the SCMC student group and encourage free distribution of this invitation to all interested persons. Our primary goal is to stimulate God-given creativity to issue into the “new song” which each generation owes its Redeemer. We wish to provide an outlet for skills and inspiration gained at camp, as well as to nurture the hymn-singing traditions of the conservative Anabaptist churches. Terms for the contest are given below. The winning composition will be presented at the 2016 camp. Submissions and questions should be directed to the SCMC Hymn Committee at: Email: Mail: Shenandoah Christian Music Camp, 6083, Mt. Clinton Pike, Rockingham VA 22802.

Come As You Are

Camp is for anyone who is interested in taking their musical abilities to the next level. The starting place is less important than the desire to learn and the willingness to be taught. Our goal is simply to help each person attending take “the next step” forward in their pursuit of excellence.

Find Answers to Your Questions

Do you have music questions you’ve been “dying” to ask someone? Our instructors are knowledgeable and experienced, and are here to help you learn more about the field of music that interests you.

Sing in a Choir

A significant part of Music Camp is that everyone gets to sing in at least one choir. You’re immersed in music for a week, and might sometimes feel as though everything is going over your head. But don’t worry–we don’t let you drown!

What Our Students Are Saying

As a first time attendee of the Shenandoah Christian Music Camp, I was unsure what to expect upon arrival. However, my anxiety soon vanished as camp began. The whole week went quickly, culminating in the final set of programs on Sunday. No matter what your level of musical expertise, SCMC offers the opportunity to expand your music horizons and move towards becoming the musician God wants you to be.

Music Camp Student

I will never regret the time I spent at Music Camp. I view it as a turning point in my life, where I learned a lot about music, myself and God. Kelly Deppen

Music Camp Student

Music Ed. was a fun, eye-opening class for me. It was fascinating to discover how young children can easily grasp musical concepts when they are presented in a simple, enjoyable manner.

A Music Camp Student

Music Camp helped me develop a talent I have. It provided motivation to pursue the development of my talent in a Godly manner and it has drawn me closer to God through the whole experience. I enjoyed the week of music very much and encourage anyone with even a slight interest in music to come experience the fun. The staff people have God’s best interest in mind along with yours. You’ll never know what it’s like till you experience it yourself!
