AAKP Camp Information

HEALTH FORMS

Health forms are required for each student.  Please download the form, complete, and turn it in to the Local Church Director on Sunday afternoon.

REHEARSAL CD

Rehearsal CDs are available at your camp location approximately two weeks before camp begins.  Make arrangements to pick them up as soon as possible so your child can begin listening to the music.  Encourage your child to listen to the CD throughout the week of camp as well.  This reinforces concepts and gives them confidence as they perform.

THE PRODUCTION CAMP BEGINS SUNDAY AFTERNOON

Sign-In begins at 2:30 PM; Session 1 begins at 3:00 PM
The opening session on Sunday afternoon is an important beginning!  The staff gets an opportunity to meet your children and then organizes the camp based on the children attending.  Though the basic program remains constant from week to week, each camp is a unique experience because of the unique mix of children.  The team begins to craft a plan Sunday evening based on the Sunday afternoon session.  It really is important for everyone to be present!

DAILY SIGN-IN AND PICK-UP

Camp begins promptly at 9:00 AM each day. Daily sign-in will begin at 8:40 AM, and will be handled at the All About Kids Productions welcome table. Unless pre-arranged with the Local Camp Director, children should not arrive prior to 8:40 AM.

Camp will end at 3:00 PM. Please arrive a few minutes early to pick-up your child.

BEFORE/AFTER CAMP CHILDCARE

This is a question for the host church. Some host churches do offer child care outside of the normal camp schedule, while others do not. Please check with your local camp director to see what is provided. Lamplight Artists’ AAKP team members do not provide child supervision before and after camp due to the physical demands of their daily, weekly, and summer schedule.

SOLO AUDITIONS

Auditions for solos will be held on Monday afternoon, beginning at 3:15.  Learning the solo prior to the audition will make the audition a much more enjoyable experience for your student. Possible solos will be available in  “Above All” and “Trust In You”. Students should learn verse one of each song for audition purposes. Lyrics for the verses can be downloaded here (Solo Audition Lyrics). Listening tracks for the solos are below.
