BUILDING BRIDGES OF UNDERSTANDING THROUGH MUSIC SINCE 1988

Our 2019 Summer Camp is an integral component of the GGBC experience. 

 

Boys participate in either overnight or day camp where they have daily instruction in sight-singing, vocal technique, ear training, music theory, solo coaching, and group rehearsals.

 

Various music approaches such as Kodály and Orff Schulwerk are utilized.

 

Additional activities include team and individual sports, campfires, arts and crafts, star gazing, and skits. 

 

Camp directors and staff members are the same dedicated music staff and alumni that are known to the boys and their families throughout the year.
