A major goal of Music Camp is to encourage and develop interest in writing and singing newly crafted hymns. To help accomplish this, we periodically commission a composer to write a new hymn. We also offer a hymn competition soliciting text and music which is then joined together to form a new hymn. For all hymns on this page, permission is granted to make copies for congregational use. For other usage, please contact us.
