UNT Middle School/Jr High Choir Camp in Denton, Texas.
Dane was one of 67 kids who attended Choir Camp for 4 days in July. Lucky kid!
The kids got to sleep in a dorm, eat in the dorm cafeterias, practice in the UNT music buildings, learn to play hand bells, and participate in fun activities every day with UNT choir students.

The boy on the far left was Dane's roommate, Josh. A camp counselor holds a welcome sign. The boy next to her, Johann became Dane's best friend at camp.
On Saturday afternoon Mason, Clark, Briana, and I attended the Choir Camp concert being held at the The Murchison Performing Arts Center on the UNT campus. It was a beautiful facility!
All the campers got a camp t-shirt that they wore for the concert.
The singers took the stage. We had front row seats. You could feel the excitement in the air.
The kids performed a total of 9 songs.
Praise We Sing to Thee
Be Like the Bird
Bedu Pako Baramasa
Serve The Lord With Gladness
All God’s Creatures Got A Place In The Choir
The boys perform one of their pieces next.
As you can imagine, the applause was thunderous and the smiles huge!
After the concert, Clark spotted Dane and friends leaving the concert hall. He snapped this picture showing the spectacular architecture of the concert hall in the background.
Camp friends Johann, Dane, and Jonah
Dane had such a great time. He wants to go back next summer. He plans to keep in touch with his camp friends over the school year and looks forward to seeing them next July.
