Choir Camp is celebrating 40 years!! This year we hope to send 100 children, youth, and staff to our camp in Warwick, NY from July 28-August 3, 2019. The daily schedule includes time for chorus; singing and dancing in drama; instrument lessons; arts and crafts; swimming; sports; and Family Time, all done in an atmosphere of mutual respect, kindness, and community. It is truly a special week for all who attend -- both campers and our staff come back year-after-year, and many say it is their favorite week of the summer! The impact of Camp is felt far longer than the week itself.
However, the business reality is that while everyone loves Camp, our expenses have risen. Almost half our campers are on full or partial scholarship, and we also have to pay for each staff member who attends. (They love camp so much that even though they volunteer their time and are not getting paid, they also contribute to Camp expenses, as much as possible. Many also use Camp as their only week off from work.)
If we are to continue making music an integral part of these children's lives, we need your help. We are trying to raise $20,000 for Camp; won't you help us and give a child the chance to experience the love, peace, music, and community of Choir Camp?
