SGC hosts Choir Camp for Allegra, Cantamus and Prime Voci the first week of August each year. In addition to rehearsals and starting the season’s repertoire the girls participate in music themed electives, evening crafts, talent show, and much more. At choir camp we naturally have fun together, strengthen chorister friendships, but we also learn SGC traveling routines and habits that help prepare for future festival/touring opportunities. The Seattle Girls’ Choir camp is required for these choir levels.
The SGC faculty are our camp faculty. Choir moms chaperone the groups, coordinate evening activities and crafts, and get an amazing inside look at this special SGC tradition. Choir moms and dads are also needed to volunteer to help the caterers in the kitchen.
Summer Music Day Camp
Currently SGC offers two week long sessions of Day Camp the last two weeks of July each summer. Day Camp includes morning choir rehearsal and afternoons learning rhythm through percussion ensembles, reading music while playing hand chimes as a group, dancing, and crafts. It is our hope that girls in the Dolcine and Vivissimi choir levels attend Day Camp as a way to keep concepts fresh.
