Idaho Mobile Camp


January 24-27, 2019


Kootenai Valley Mennonite Church – Bonners Ferry, Idaho

Meet the 3 C’s of your learning experience:

Chapel. Class. Choir.

Biblical Challenge. Musical knowledge. Choral training.

Chapels, Classes & Choirs


In chapel we explore God, music, and worship. We consider how the Bible teaches us to think about the questions surrounding
music and worship, and how to respond to God in love and obedience. There are also Congregational Workshops in the evening. Both Chapel and the Congregational Workshops are open to the public! We’d love to see lots of people there.


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.
