Mobile Camps

Skilled, biblical training in music and worship brought into your church community.

What goes on at Mobile Camps?

Classes. Choirs. Congregational Sessions.

Biblical Challenge. Musical understanding. Choral training.


Stretch your skills!

Rudiments. Are music notes and the do-re-mi’s a mystery to you? In Rudiments class you will learn how written music works.

Sight-Singing. Do you wish you could simply pick up a new song and sing it? In Sight-Singing class you will learn to sing music at sight, just like you read a newspaper or book out loud.

Experience the joy of singing in a group that challenges you but meets you at your level.  Choir is a fun way to put the things you’re learning in Rudiments and Sight-Singing into practice. 

Adult Mixed Choirs

Children’s Choirs

Mass Choirs



Congregational Sessions


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.

 Congregational Workshops

These workshops are focused specifically on growing congregational singing skills. They will cover things such as hymn book skills (what good is the index, anyway?), basics of singing well, shaped-note sight-singing skills, and more!

How long is a mobile camp?

We offer two options: the Four-Day Intensive Camp and the Full-Week Camp. 

Four-Day Intensive

Thursday – Sunday. Includes Rudiments, Sight-Singing, Choir(s), and evening congregational sessions.


Tuesday – Sunday. Includes Rudiments, Sight-Singing, Leading Congregational Worship, Choir, and evening congregational sessions. 

Why host a mobile camp?

You may want to host a mobile camp if you answer yes to any of the following questions:

  • Are your members wishing to grow musically? 
  • Does your congregational singing ever lack participation or enthusiasm?
  • Do any of your song leaders need leadership and music training? 
  • Do you dream of bringing music training and opportunities to your own people?  


    How much does a mobile camp cost?

    Mobile Camps are considerably less expensive than PermaCamps. The cost per student at a mobile camp is less than half of what it costs for a permanent camp. A mobile camp coming to your home community can cost a total of $3500-$12,000. Because of the work done by the home community, this usually translates into a per-student cost of $100-$150. (PermaCamps cost students around $500, including tuition and lodging.)

    How does hosting a mobile camp work?

    SCMC works with you and your committee through the entire process of planning your camp.

    We provide:

    1. instructors
    2. application process
    3. publicity materials
    4. procedures (how to run camp, dress code, etc.)

    You come up with:

    1. a committee to work on your camp
    2. the facilities and necessary equipment
    3. meals
    4. lodging, if needed
    How many students are needed?

    Mobile camps are designed for entire churches or communities, young and old. Typical enrollment is 50-200 students.

    What time of year can we host a mobile camp?

    We do our best to work with your schedule, but camp dates depend largely on when instructors are available to travel to your community.

    How soon can I get a mobile camp in my community?

    Mobile Camps have a lot of moving parts, so it does take some time to set them up. Often it takes communication with your community, then again with us, and so on. It’s best to be in conversation a year ahead of time, but in a “best case scenario” a mobile camp can be brought to your community in 6-8 months from our first conversation.
