Completed 3 - 5 and 6 - 12
The Worship Arts camps have become a staple here at Blue Lake over the past 42 years! These camps are our longest running camps at Blue Lake and have become some of our favorites! Each camp is set up to give campers age appropriate opportunities to learn and hone musical gifts from some of the most talented educators in our conference! Beyond our main focus of chorale singing, campers will have the opportunity to participate in various classes like, hand bells, arts & crafts, drama, dance, band, guitar, etc. All campers will have the opportunity to participate in some of our traditional camp activities and events as well. At the end of the week our camps come together to perform a concert for parent and guests on checkout day.
