CAMP UPDATE: We are sad to share that the choral track at the 2023 camp did not have the registration numbers needed to happen. The band-led track still has limited space remaining.
Students participating in the choral worship track at Worship Lab will join with other singers from across the country in rehearsals and breakout sectionals to prepare a set list of repertoire to be shared on the closing day of camp. The choral students have the opportunity to present music at the closing service for the Alleluia Conference and at the closing service for Worship Lab on Friday evening.
Students participating in Worship Lab will have the opportunity to participate in the following activities throughout the week:
- Daily Devotionals led by guest artists and worship leaders
- Choir Rehearsals & Sectionals
- Breakout Classes on Music, Worship, leadership, and more.
- Evening concerts and events.
- Artist Q&A Showcases
