“ ...And this one time, ...when I was at a Choir-Camp...”

One weekend each semester, QUMS will host a Choir Camp. This is a weekend retreat, from Friday evening through to Sunday afternoon. As well as being a lot of fun (themed dress-up night, musical revues, board games, singing around campfires etc), we workshop and rehearse in-depth for the upcoming concert. Camp weekends are the cheapest fully-catered weekend away you’ll ever get! Attendance is very important, as it equates to several rehearsals worth of learning. Transport, dietary requirements etc are all catered for. If you must be absent try to make at least a part of the weekend, and discuss with your Section Leader and Musical Director.

Payment plans are available, so no drama if you have any financial issues! Just talk to our friendly treasurer Alex Jago :)

If you have First Aid skills, let us know - we can use your skills. 

FAQs

  • Camping/Tents??!! 
    • ​NO! No tents. Real beds are provided in dormitories of 4 or 8 people, so you can "get a room" with your friends. Or make new ones. Bring your own bedding/sleeping-bag.
  • Campfires?
    • Only for singing around, not for cooking (so bring your songbooks). All catering is done in a professional-grade kitchen.
  • Ablution blocks?
    • ​Accomodation is dormitory-style, with showers/toilets at the end of the corridor. Bring your own soap and towel!
  • Banging? 
    • A time-held tradition... You may get "banged-up" at dinner and put on the spot to stand up and tell your best/worst joke.  So be sure you bring a joke to share.
  • Fancy Dress?
    • ​The theme for Saturday night dress-up is SHEROES (female heroes)!
  • Revue?
    • Another time-honoured tradition: After dinner on Saturday, we entertain each other with a bit of a "floor-show"; if you  have a favourite song/ditty/parody or act that you can entertain us with, the stage is all yours for your crack at fame. Or infamy. Judges will decide the winner - but they are easily bribed with chocolates / alcohol / pretty much anything, so bring along a suitable "incentive" :-)
  • Alcohol? 
    • Camp Tamborine is a 'dry' campsite. However, there is a distillery 2 km down the road!
  • Day-trippers?
    • ​Some folks may not relish the idea of overnighting in anything other than their own feather beds. If this is you, you have the option of commuting (it is a good hour+ drive) each day. Be sure to arrive by 8:30am. If you arrive earlier, you may be rewarded with a hot breakfast.
