About the Camp

What if your student came out of this summer with greater musicianship? What if that also showed them how to better imitate their Heavenly Father? What if they could do all this without feeling like it was work? Sound good so far?

Enter Jubilate Deo Summer Music Camp, a unique opportunity for students age five through graduated seniors to refine their music skills in fun and fulfilling ways. Students will work on singing, dancing, music theory, Bible, and more as they prepare for a final concert and folk dance. That last part is a bit of fun for the whole family too!

As the Triune God sings and makes music over His creation, we will grow more and more into His likeness when we seek to be joyful music makers in the ways we are able. Rather than be music consumers only, how about some practice as music creators! Don’t miss out on this unique music camp.

The theme of the camp and concert music will focus around a theme set by our conductor, Dr. David Erb. Each day the students will gather at 8:30am for morning prayer and singing, followed by an exhaustingly fun schedule of singing, Bible, folk dancing, and games. 5 year olds through 4th grade students will conclude at noon and 5th-12th will go until 3pm. Questions can be directed to Jarrod Richey at

Music Literacy for Everyone!

Training students to read, write, and sing music regardless of career aspirations.

In a day and age when music and the arts are relegated to extracurricular activities, Christians must work extra hard to train themselves and their children in the joy of music and singing.

Beyond a Joy of Music: Giving your children the music training you never had is a short article that gets to the heart of why the Jubilate Deo Music Summer Music Camp was founded.

Highlights and Images from past camps

Jubilate Deo Summer Music Camp is not just about giving children something to do during their summer break. It's about instructing them in what it means to be skillful singers who understand the blessings of singing and making music.

Jubilate Deo is the only camp of its kind in the south where music literacy is paired with a biblical understanding of music and singing.


Five year-olds through entering 4th graders are Half-day campers and their fee is $75 for the week which includes a camp T-Shirt. Entering 5th graders through graduated seniors are Full-day campers and their fee is $90 for the week and also includes a camp T-shirt. Again this year there is a revised fee scale that offers flat rate discounts to large familes registering 3-6 children. This discount works out to 30 to 55 percent depending on how large the family registering. Also, scholarships are available and are given out by the director, Jarrod Richey after request and consultation.
