A Camping Experience Like No Other—It’ll Leave You Singing…And Wanting More

8th grade graduates – high school

June 15–21

The Eureka College Summer Choral Camp was created in the summer of 2000 to meet an important need in Central Illinois – a summer music program that would provide young singers with additional vocal/choral training and opportunities to meet and socialize with other students who possess similar musical interests.

The choral camp, hosted on the beautiful campus of Eureka College in Eureka, Illinois, is an extremely busy week as campers are immersed in individual, small ensemble, and large group instruction.  Afternoon recital performances and discussions, led by professional vocalists, are also held every afternoon directly after lunch.  These performance and subsequent discussion experiences are extremely valuable for the campers because they not only have the opportunity to hear talented singers but also the opportunity to dialogue with the professional artists.  The camp concludes with a grand finale concert held on the last day of camp.

Activities Include

  • high-end singing instruction and practice mixed with…FUN
  • swimming in the indoor pool
  • square dancing with a live country band
  • music trivia competition
  • a talent show
  • video scavenger hunts
  • a grand finale concert

The Summer Choral Camp provides campers with a comprehensive and accelerated choral learning experience including participation in both large and small ensembles, voice classes, private voice studio, music reading, music history, and music theory. As part of the curriculum, campers will study and perform the All-State audition pieces as a means to help students prepare for fall IMEA auditions.

Space is limited

Individual instruction and small group lessons are at the core of the program, therefore, enrollment is capped at 60 on a first come, first served basis.
