The Youth Music Camp, sponsored by the Florida Chapter of the Fellowship of United Methodists in Music & Worship Arts (FUMMWA), is led by the Youth Team, which consists of college students and high school seniors who have been regular Music Camp attendees in the past. 2016 Music Camp was awesome! We would love to have you join us this summer, June 11-16, 2017. Contact us on the Contacts page in order to receive the 2017 Youth Music Camp information you need
WHAT WE DO
The youth campers participate in choir rehearsals, different types of classes, daily worship, free time, games, dorm groups, and more.
HOW IT GOES
Every morning, the entire adult Workshop and Youth Music Camp attendees gather together for morning Chapel to begin the day with worship. In the evening, the youth participate in their own Vespers, a time for contemporary worship. With a praise band and spiritual leader, the youth learn more about God and strengthen their relationship with Him through a time a fellowship and worship. Throughout the week, the youth work with a choir director to master challenging, but rewarding choral pieces, that are performed on the last day of the workshop.
The daily schedule for the youth includes attending three classes of their choice. The classes are taught by members of the Youth Team. The classes typically consist of Drumming, Art, Gadget Guru, Guitar, Praise Band, Faith Sharing, Sign Language, Liturgical Dance and Recreation. Through the classes the youth grow closer to each other, learn how to praise God in new ways, and further or discover new talents.After Vespers every night, the campers split into their dorm groups, which are led by members of the Youth Team. These groups give the campers a chance to reflect on the message delivered by the spiritual leader during Vespers, and an opportunity to talk about their faith in a small group setting.
THE 'FUN' STUFF
Additional fun activities include a game of capture the flag, a campfire, movie night, a high school dance, and a talent show. Free time is spent playing games such as the camp’s traditional game of nine square, practicing for the talent show, or getting to know each other.
By the end of the week, the youth have gained new friendships, a renewed love of Christ, and new, exciting ways to worship God.
