What makes PBA camps special?

Pacific Boychoir camps are focused on creating a fun atmosphere for campers to immerse themselves in music for a week and build a new community of friends, colleagues, and musicians through creative activities planned by our staff. Every day, campers will have a full group rehearsal to begin the day, followed by activities led by our counselors our music staff. 

Our camps are run by PBA staff, who understand the intricacies of the choir and create meaningful prog programming based on their own experiences. Non-musical activities will include many skills that we feel all young people should know, such as cooking, car maintenance, tying a tie, packing a suitcase, and so much more!

Overnight Camp at Bishop’s Ranch is an integral part of the Pacific Boychoir program, and we are glad to be returning to this format for 2022! With non-stop activities, choristers come away with strong friendships and stories to last a whole year. This camp is mandatory for Cantori choristers, and strongly encouraged for all day schoolers, High School Troubadors, and Changed Voices/Continuum.

The week is a time for choristers to immerse themselves in music, activities, and friendship. In one week, students learn as much music as they would in two months of regular rehearsals by working on repertoire for the coming year and getting small group lessons in music theory.

Aside from music, the amazing counselors run non-stop activities including:

  • Campfire
  • Capture the flag
  • Movie night
  • Nighttime scavenger hunt
  • Daily swimming (2 certified lifeguards)
  • “Manly” Arts (archery, how to change a tire, tie tying, sewing a button, cooking, and other “manly” skills)
