Instructors: Rassem El Massih & Greg Abdalah Registration is open to campers ages 14-17, or entering the 9th grade. Campers will focus on two tones throughout the session and will break off into beginner and intermediate levels with the chanting instructors. Campers will be introduced to Byzantine Notation, which is an ancient method for writing liturgical music and is still used today in Churches following the Byzantine tradition. Campers will learn the Greek scale (Ni, Pa, Vou, Gha, Dhi, Ke, Zo, Ni), how to read the music, and the theory behind it.

Iconographer: Erin Kimmet (Annunciation Press Icons) This workshop is for campers ages 15-18, or entering the 9th grade. This program will be separate from the main Summer Camp Program, as the participants will spend the majority of the week learning how to write a traditional Byzantine icon. While artistic or drawing ability is helpful, all you need is the desire to learn more about the sacred art of Iconography. The week will be spent learning the basics of writing a traditional icon, with trips off-camp to a local iconographer and to a local monastery.
