Day 3

Welcome to Day 3 at Viola Camp! The students are working very hard on their music, and learning a lot about different musical styles and techniques.

We celebrated our college intern’s birthday yesterday. A former viola camper herself, Ann is a valuable asset to the Viola Camp team. Happy birthday!

Campers are looking forward to our adventure to Gold Fork Hot Springs tonight. 

Pictures coming later today!

Day 1

We are having a great time here at Viola Camp! Campers have made new friends, connected with old friends and started the process of making beautiful music together.  

After a slow drive up to McCall, campers set up camp, ate dinner and went for their first rehearsal together.  Today, we will rehearse, have game and craft time, practice time, go for a hike, have a campfire, and more! 

Our final concert is at 2pm Saturday, August 9 at The Summit Church in Boise. Come support the viola campers!
