Meet the 3 C’s of your learning experience:

Classes. Choirs. Chapel.

Biblical Challenge. Musical understanding. Choral training.


Sight Singing

Sight Singing aims to help you read new music as easily as you read a newspaper. Students learn various tips to help in sight reading, and have opportunities to practice skills through class exercises. All students will take placement test for Sight-Singing.


It’s important that you get in the right level of Rudiments, so you are neither bored nor overwhelmed.

  • Rudiments 1: Notation – a study of the elements of basic notation, simple time signatures, note and rest values, and accidentals.
  • Rudiments 2: Scales & Keys – a study of major scales, major key signatures, and compound time signatures. If you sign up for Rudiments 2, you will receive a placement test to make sure you are in the right class.
  • Rudiments 3: Intervals – a study of intervals and minor scales. If you sign up for Rudiments 3, you will receive a placement test to make sure you are in the right class. 
Leading Congregational Worship

This class examines essential components of leading congregational worship with a two-part focus: 1) practices of song leading and congregational conducting and 2) understanding and leading worship.  Discussions may also include planning, clear communication of musical ideas, deportment, and use of the hymnal.  A portion of the class will include hands-on practice where participants conduct in class for instructor and peer review.  As this class specifically trains congregational leaders, it is open only to men.

Class Voice

An introduction to the concepts and practices of healthy tension-free singing. Areas of study will include developing controlled breathing, phonation that is neither pressed nor breathy, focused resonance, and crisp articulation. Students will sing for, analyze, and critique each other.

Children's Musical Skills

When we first start school, we learn about letters, how letters form words, and how words form sentences. In musical skills class, we do the same thing – only with music. Students will learn about notes, rhythms, rest, pitches, and how they all fit together to form a song. Learning how music works will strengthen their choir experience as they get skills to help them read unfamiliar music.

Join the choir and experience the joy of singing in a group; students say it’s their favorite part of camp! Choir is a fun way to put the things you’re learning in Rudiments and Sight-Singing into practice.


2 Adult Mixed Choirs

In chapel we explore God, music, and worship. We consider how the Bible teaches us to think about the questions surrounding
