What it is:
The LMS 7th/8th Grade Choir Overnight is a unique tradition going on 10 years. Our purpose is two-fold: sing/dance/play in an “intensive” rehearsal atmosphere; and, continue to find ways of gaining confidence in our individual skill-sets and personality qualities. What we bring to the table as individuals is perfectly acceptable because it is who we are. Once we begin to gain confidence in ourselves, we look at how to realize our potential while helping to improve the lives of those around us. An outward sign of confidence is our ability to trust our voice as it is and, sing (with good technique, of course). We work within the LMS P.R.I.D.E motto of growth in relationships and growth in the complete individual.
What it looks like:
We partner with Deb Kulcsar and Experiential Learning Associates (website above) to help us facilitate activities outside of rehearsal times that focus on growth in self-confidence while looking out for those around you. Activities challenge students mentally and physically but do not require any special physical ability or experience. Both days alternate between scheduled rehearsal times, meals and sessions with E.L.A. The days and nights are structured to the minute, while never losing focus of our students’ needs to enjoy the process. Our evening include the traditional campfire show and end in chaperoned cabins.
Should my child go?
Without hesitation I would encourage him or her to come along. While students are held accountable by their teachers to catch up on their work, make up assignments, etc, students often come back from the overnight saying that this was an essential part of their growth in the class and in their school year. However, it is not mandatory. And, scholarships are available on need-basis.
