Join us for 2016 Camp eXpresso!

camp_expressIt is challenging to balance the technical demands of singing well with expressing your inner most artistic self.  This is exactly what we work to accomplish with every child that attends Camp eXpresso!

Our camp is an excellent opportunity for young singers to gain the valuable learning tools for expressive and successful stage singing.  We have an expert camp staff of experienced educators and are also joined by local artists who share their tricks of the stage. All campers will practice moving and singing expressively in preparation for a showcase performance in the beautiful outdoor tabernacle.

The combination of Central Oak Height’s natural beauty and our camp activities will encourage artistic communication and collaboration in a nurturing and engaging environment.  This is not just something for kids to do, it is a transformative experience.
