For Children & Youth: Junior Choir Camp,
August 11-17, 2024

For singers ages 8.5 – 12 (unchanged voices)
Guest conductor: Carmen So

Assistant Conductor:  Krista Vincent

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.

The staff are fully trained and most are parents, teachers who want professional development, or alumni campers. The camper to staff ratio is 4:1 with only 5-6 children per cabin. There is a nurse on site available 24 hours a day. As well, our chef prepares nutritious, home cooked meals, healthy snacks, and caters to dietary restrictions and allergies.

Registrations will be taken on a first come first served basis until we reach maximum capacity.

Please note: We want to ensure your child feels as comfortable as possible at camp. The rustic and charming multi-coloured cabins at Berwick United Church camp provide the accommodations for our campers at JCC. Each cabin is cozy and unique, varying in floor plan and sleeping arrangements. Every singer will have their own bed, however in some cabins, there is a mix of double and single mattresses for singers.  If requested, double mattresses allow choristers to share their bed with a friend (each with their own sleeping bag and pillow).  If this is something you would like to make your stay at camp more comfortable, please let us know on your registration form.
