Children/Youth Camp is a great opportunity for children and youth ages 8-17 to sing and learn with others. They will sing in choir under an experienced director who will make it both educational and fun. Classes will help children read and understand music as they learned to read and understand words.
Children/Youth Camp is Monday – Friday, 10:00AM – 3:00PM. In choir, students see the music, notes, rests, and rhythms. In class, they learn what those things mean and how they work together to form a song. The teachers work hard to customize material for each age level so it’s accessible and exciting.
Camp is also a social experience. Lunches are provided, and everyone gets to eat together. Lunch time also includes recreation and games – a welcome break from the mental work of classes and choir.
All the learning and singing during the week is pushing toward an end goal – performing at ChoralFest, getting to share what they’ve been learning with family and other audience members. This is a highly satisfying chance to show what they did throughout the week.
What ages are allowed in Children/Youth Camp?

What if my son has a changed voice?
Changed voices are welcome! He will sing in the Youth Choir.
What guidelines are in place at camp to ensure the safety of children and youth?
SCMC instructors and staff who teach or supervise students under age 18 at camp have completed abuse awareness and prevention training through Ministry Safe and have had a background check completed. In addition, they annually review and agree to follow the SCMC policies for the protection of minors.
