For four days, children (grades 2-7) gather to immerse

themselves in worship and the arts with their peers and

an exceptional faculty of international and national renown. All of our instructors are trained musicians and/or music educators. The campers are split into small groups (12-15) by age and experience to travel through the day. Each group is accompanied by a shepherd who stays with them for the week. Most of our shepherds are musicians and/or educators.


While the summer camp day focuses on children from grades 2-7, we offer an expanded program to include both our camp alumni and a learning experience for interested adults. Slated for August 7 through August 10 at Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Livonia, the 2017 camp experience will be split into three distinct modules:

1) 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. - Campers entering Grades 2-7 in the upcoming school year will participate in the same process our children have enjoyed since the summer of 2009, with hands-on experiences in choral singing, handbells, African drums, Orff instruments and liturgical art.

2) 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. – We invite camp alumni entering Grades 8 and above to return to camp as assistants during the day followed by a worship and arts experience from 3 to 4 p.m. designed specifically for them.


3) 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. Monday-Wednesday – Music directors and educators have the opportunity to participate in a three-session workshop intended to equip these musicians to apply the process developed for the campers and extend it into their own context.

Campers share the fruits of their daily experiences in a concluding presentation on Thursday evening of our camp week.
