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.
