We will sing, play chimes, play drums, learn scripture and use music and movement.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        No musical experience is required. Music camp is perfect for regular Praise in Action or STARS Choir members refreshing their music skills over the break, or for those who have never done a STARS music class before and would like to try it out.
