Children's Camp

What is Children’s Camp? 

Children’s Camp is held Monday to Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and offers students musical instruction in both choir and classroom settings. Lunch and break times allow for recreation and help to make Music Camp a fun learning experience for children ages 8-15. The Children’s Choir presents several songs at the concluding ChoralFest.

 

What does Children’s Camp Include?

The full Children’s Camp experience includes two choir rehearsals and a 50 minute class daily. Lunch is provided by the camp, Monday-Friday.  Children may sign up for the choir, the class, or both here.

 

Children’s Choir

Conductor: Gwendolyn Good, Dwilyn Beiler

Children’s Choir meets twice daily, 10:15-11:30 a.m. and 1:50-3:00 p.m., Monday-Friday, and is for school-aged children ages 8-15 singing in treble voices.  Students enrolled in choir are expected to participate in the Choral Fest including the dress rehearsal on Saturday evening.

 

Children’s Musical Skills

Instructors, Level I: Gwendolyn Good; Level 2: Sarah Sommers; Level 3: Dwilyn Beiler

Textbook: None

Children’s Musical Skills covers a sequence of melodic and rhythmic elements that will equip students with skills for reading and singing unfamiliar music. It is recommended that this class be taken in conjunction with the Children’s Choir and is intended for school-aged children. Literacy skills in rhythm and melody will be presented, along with activities to make the content enjoyable. Students will be divided into levels based on age, and will not be tested for placement. The class will be structured in such a way as to be achievable for those without prior learning but also to be challenging for students with former music experience. 

 

Weekend Activities

On Saturday, children should be at ChoralFest venue for practice and dress rehearsal by 4:45pm. Regular camp attire is acceptable. Children should have supper prior to coming to practice.

On Sunday, the formal ChoralFest begins at 3:00 p.m. Children should be at the ChoralFest venue by 1:00pm, dressed in their formal choir attire. Children may bring games and books to occupy themselves quietly during and between programs.  Following the afternoon program, a light supper will be served.  After dismissal of the evening program, children are once again the responsibility of their parents.
