A camp for musicians and non-musicians

The Spirit of Christ ought to be reflected in the music that Christians use. Our prayer is that this might be the desire of each person who attends camp, not only as it applies to church music, but also in every area of life.

This camp is not only for vocalists and instrumentalists, but non-musicians are also welcome. Non-musicians can participate in singing and learn from godly music teaching.


General Information

  • Bible
  • Instruments

Instrument types

Only orchestral instruments and pianos will be used at the camp. As we will be focusing on orchestral music at the camp, there will be no opportunities for using saxophones, electric guitars, or other electric instruments. Acoustic guitars that are played in a classical style are welcome.

Piano players

There will be a limited opportunity for the top piano players to accompany different groups throughout the camp week. They can select either the vocal or the instrumental stream depending on whether they wish to major on voice or percussion respectively.

The two streams

There will be two streams: A vocal stream and an instrumental stream. The vocal stream includes a vocal ensemble, while the instrumental stream includes an orchestra. All campers can be involved in the camp choir. Registrants can choose which stream to be involved in while filling out the online registration form.
