Buies Creek, N.C.-Campbell University will hold its 10th annual Children's Choir Camp, June 15-19 on the Campbell campus. The intense musical learning experience is designed for students who have completed third grade and may be as old as rising 8th graders. Applications are being accepted through June 15.

Directed by Dr. Phillip Morrow and wife Susan, Children's Choir Camp or C-4, focuses on voice, vocal development and learning to read and appreciate music. A concert presentation at the end of the week demonstrates the progress students have made in each of these areas. The camp is for boys and girl who are treble singers, meaning that male voices must be unchanged. Dr. Ran Whitley, chair of the Division of Fine Arts at Campbell, and Kathy Sutter, a certified Orff ( a music teaching method) specialist will also assist as camp directors.

Structured as a day camp, C-4 begins at 9 a.m. and runs until 5 p.m. each day. Instruction includes working on choral skills, music theory, instrumental skills, music reading skills and other areas of music.

"It is a great time for students to become actively involved in music and to make new friends," said Morrow. "Campers who are involved in their school music programs and show both aptitude and promise in music will greatly benefit from this program."

Scholarships are available for students who are recommended by their school music teachers.
