On Monday, July 7, 29 campers, ages 7 – 12, came from St. Michael Community School, McDermid Community School and Imperial Community School to spend the week making music at Regina’s second Jr Glee Music & Movement camp.  The camp was offered by the Saskatchewan Choral Federation (SCF) in partnership with the Regina North East Community Association and ran from Monday, July 7 to Thursday, July 10, 2014.  A final concert and reception were held on the last day for family, friends, and partners at the Regina Lutheran Care Home (1925 5th Avenue N) to showcase what the campers learned.

Throughout the week, campers learned drumming and guitar, sang in choir, and made their own percussion instruments.  Three students in high school and university did an excellent job as counselors.  Kristy Apodaca returned to teach drumming and SCF was pleased to welcome two new instructors, Megan Peterson who taught choir and Burns Holland who taught guitar and ukulele. 

Thank you to Access Communications Children’s Fund who provided a grant to cover some of the costs for the camp and we appreciate the additional in-kind support that was received from 2-4-1 Pizza (North) and Katherine Ross (face painting).  We would like to thank all of our volunteers, clinicians, counselors and sponsors for your help and support in making this year’s Jr Glee Camp a success!

Junior Glee Summer Music & Movement Camp is a summer music camp offered by the Saskatchewan Choral Federation in partnership with local community organizations committed to engaging young people. The four-day camp is held in a neighbourhood location for easy access and is for campers who have completed grade 3 to grade 8. Throughout the week campers sing together, learn new instruments and experience a variety of other arts activities.

No musical experience is required. Campers work with different clinicians and begin learning the basics of each component/activity. They continue learning throughout the week and enjoy recreational activities such as arts & crafts, an explorer’s trip and being part of a talent show.   A final concert and reception for family, friends, sponsors and partners are held on the last day at a care home or community centre to showcase what the campers have learned. The intent of the camp is to develop long-term interest and involvement in music appreciation, awareness, and enjoyment.
