Choral Camp is a five-day experience for students and teachers interest in choral music, beginning on Monday evening and concluding with concerts on Friday morning. The event, sponsored by the MMEA Junior High and Senior High Choral Divisions and MHSAA, is open to all students completing grades fifth through twelve. The camp directors are Amy Lee and Brittany Navarro.
Students rehearse several times daily with a prominent director. Middle school and senior high choirs are separated for rehearsals, meals, and performances. Activities include small group activities, a cookie party, movie night, a talent show, a dance party, prank night, and swimming and water sliding. Middle school singers are housed in bunkhouse huts; high school singers are housed in cabins.
Teachers are involved daily in relaxed educational sessions taught by a nationally known master musician, and 3.0 CEUs are available for a minimal fee. A display of the Florida, Mississippi, and Texas state lists octavos will be available for teacher perusal. Teachers are housed in the park motel across the lake from the student camps where there is plenty of time to relax and share ideas with colleagues.
