Do you like music? Do you like singing? Do you like having fun? If you answered yes to any of those questions, join us for Children's Choir Camp this summer! Choir Camp is a time for all children interested in singing in one of our children's choirs to come together and get to know each other before the choir season kicks off. Each day includes games, singing, outdoor activities, and team-building. 

Following the camp, the children will lead the music for 10:30 am worship in the Church on Sunday, August 7. Children entering 1st through 8th grade are welcome! If your child(ren) are interested, please click the link below to register.

Choir Academy

The Christ Church Choir Academy is a fun faith-based choral music education program, with an emphasis on the development of life skills and belonging to a diverse community.

Choristers study music reading, vocal skills, and performance etiquette for concerts and worship services, based on the Royal School of Church Music (RSCM) training program, led by our professional music staff.

The Choir Academy is a great way for children to explore their artistic abilities and discover the joys of teamwork and leadership!
