A Decade of Restoration

Early each August for the past 10 years, youth musicians have convened at Warm Beach Camp & Conference Center for renewal through a week of choral singing, music theory studies, rekindling friendships, and classic summer camp activities.

Throughout this decade, a community of like-minded, musical artists has developed – bringing together teens in grades 6-12. Along with college counselor-mentors and professional musician leaders from all over the United States and even occasionally abroad. The 2019 NW Choir Camps – Honor Choir Summer Camp saw counselors returning from as far away as Alabama, Hawaii, Oregon, and Texas, all having started out as campers themselves. Over 300 youth participated over the past 10 years.

Warm Beach is the perfect backdrop for the artistry and music making of this unique group of youth. Campers return year after year because Warm Beach provides generous space and inspiring landscapes – along with quality, comfortable, modern, and clean facilities. Friendly and professional Warm Beach staff make the Choir Camp staff’s work effortless.

Return attendees find their week at choir camp to be a time of renewal through music and spending quality time with friends. It has become a sort of “vacation” from the hectic busyness, challenges, and demands of our fast-paced lives. Many singers say that Choir Camp is the highlight of their entire year.

NW Choir Camps – Honor Choir Summer Camp is an outreach project of Spectrum Choral Academy, which serves youth locally in the Key Peninsula/Gig Harbor area year round. Select camp singers have the opportunity to participate in Music & Cultural Tours every 2 years. Past tours include 2016 to Italy and 2018 to England & Scotland. In March 2020 they will travel to New York City to perform at Carnegie Hall, visiting the most popular monuments, museums, and Broadway shows.

The importance of music in a young person’s life is unquantifiable. Music has the power to change and renew a person, which in turn can change and renew a society. Warm Beach has been the perfect partner for NW Choir Camps to help make this a reality.

The Honor Choir Summer Camp is open to all experienced musicians entering grades 6-12 the following fall.

More Than I Could Ask For

I volunteer with Warm Beach Camp Horsemanship. 2020 was my first year with the program, and it was remarkable! At first, I was a little bit wary of connecting with another group of horsewomen, as I had "PTSD" of sorts from my experiences at stables with other strong horsewomen. I felt God tugging at my elbow though, so I went through the volunteer registration process and set a date to meet Ginger at the Warm Beach Camp stables. Ginger and ...
