Children’s Camp

Children’s Camp is a great opportunity for children and youth ages 7-15 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’s Camp is Monday-Friday, 9:20AM – 3:30PM. 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. Camp also includes chapel, recreation, snack 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 the Choral Festival, 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.

Meet the 3 C’s of your learning experience:

Choir. Class. Choral Festival.


Treble Choir (Ages 7-10)
Treble Choir rehearses twice daily, Monday – Friday. Choir students also participate in Dress Rehearsal and the Choral Festival.

Conductor: Gwendolyn Good


Youth Choir (Ages 11-15)
Youth choir rehearses twice daily, Monday – Friday. Choir students also participate in Dress Rehearsal and the Choral Festival.

Conductor: Wendell Glick


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.

Classes meet Monday – Friday. Class placement is by age, and is designed to be within reach of all, and yet challenging to those who are more advanced.

Adult Class Option. For an additional $95 CAD (plus textbook fee), students ages 13-15 may choose to take an 8:20AM Adult Rudiments class (view class description). This will require textbook purchase or rental. First-time participants will take an online placement test before coming to camp. Children who have taken an Adult Rudiments class in a prior year will be placed in the next level unless they request to retake a level.

Choral Festival

All students enrolled in choir sing in the Choral Festival, including the dress rehearsal on Saturday evening.

On Saturday, children should be at Wallenstein Bible Chapel at 5:15PM for practice and dress rehearsal. Children are not required to be in formal choir attire for this dress rehearsal, and should have supper before coming to practice.

On Sunday, children should be at Wallenstein Bible Chapel by 2:00PM, dressed in their formal choir attire.  All children are to be back to their rehearsal places by 6:45PM in preparation for the evening program.

Following the afternoon program, a light supper will be provided for all Children’s Choir (Treble and Youth) students. Parents of children in Treble Choir have the option of taking their children home between the afternoon and evening programs. Supervision of ALL Children’s Choir members will be provided by a local youth group between programs. Non-student parents staying to monitor their children (or parents who are not local) that wish to purchase supper may do so on their children’s application.
