This camp offers a fun-filled week of music and social activities in a safe and happy environment. Children explore different types of choral styles together as they learn about singing techniques, reading music and good musical habits in a supportive and stress-free setting.
There are also lots of fun activities including outdoor games, sing-songs, a mystery night, a beach trip, arts & crafts and drama. Cabin Theme Dinner, PJ Breakfast, make your own sundae dessert night and 'Hollywood' talent nights are always favourites, and everybody makes new friends! The week ends with a concert for family members and friends.
